Focus on leading technology, and proven quality. Use a systems approach. Focus on big picture and complete system integration. Focus on correctly sizing mixer. Choose correct mixer based on size. Build in room to expand size and different applications. Create system flexibility.

Generally the specifics of each application are known by the purchaser and few suppliers generally can predict the mixing technology well unless testing is taking place in a plant or laboratory.

Ensure that they do trials first. Most companies have their own labs to do trials on as products act different under certain conditions.
