  What will Double Action do for you?


Double Action


Horizontal, single action mixers require five to ten minutes to fully blend a product, and in that process, destroy the integrity of most products.

  • Unless you have a "soupy" product consistency that can withstand a long mixing cycle, you should be using a double action mixer.
  • If particle definition and an even, thorough blend if ingredients are critical to your product specifications, you should be using a double action mixer.

The only advantage a single action mixer has over a Double Action mixer is cost—single action mixers are inexpensive to build. However, as with most things, you get what you pay for.

What is 'Double Action'?

       Double Action describes the unique, counter-rotating paddle configuration of the Leland Southwest Double Action™ Mixers. Product is moved in a "figure eight" pattern through the mixer, effectively combining all components, even micro ingredients. The design emulates hand mixing by folding ingredients together gently and thoroughly. Don’t be fooled by manufactures claiming "dual action" – this usually means reversible, not counter-rotating. Simply reversing the paddle direction will not decrease the mixing time or give your products the "hand mixed" appearance and texture attainable with the Double Action™ Mixer. The Double Action™ paddles work in unison: the "inner" paddle blades rotate inside the "outer" ribbon blades. All Leland Southwest Double Action mixing paddles rotate at less than 26 RPM.


We have salad, paste, pasta filling, sausage, spice, seafood, soup, mixed vegetable and pizza manufacturers that all rely on the Double Action Mixer in their operations. 


Shouldn’t you?

Leland Southwest Double Action  mixers have no problem with the toughest of mixtures!

    The Leland Southwest Double Action Mixer, in one and a half minutes, will extract enough protein from sausage, without smearing or raising the temperature of your product, to make stuffing a breeze. Initially the Double Action Mixer was designed to effectively and efficiently extract protein from sausage for better bind, bite and yield. 

Today, the Double Action Mixer has become a standard in the salad industry as well. Because the products are blended quickly and evenly with the paddles rotating slowly, ingredient components are not destroyed in the mixing process. In fact, most products are blended thoroughly in less than one minute. Potato Salad – 45 seconds. Macaroni – 45 seconds. Coleslaw – 45 seconds. Dry Spices -- one minute.


Save you time & money!
