Batch Blender with Eight Element Material Hopper Going Through Production

A 5kg Guardian Series 2 Batch Blender with 8 material hoppers is ready to be shipped out from our headquarters in Atlanta, GA.

The blender also features restricted cartridge gates for ingredients below 1%. Restricted cartridge gates provide increased accuracy for component percentages below 1% by reducing the gate discharge area. As the gate retracts the amount of material released into the weigh hopper is limited by this reduced area which provides more precise control and results in a better blend and cost reduction by eliminating excessive amounts of expensive additives.

Blender Touch Screen Control Enclosure Engineered for Extreme Ambient Conditions

Last month we gave an update on a special order of Guardian Series 2 Batch Blenders going through production.  As we continue to track their progress, we now find that the special touch screen enclosures are nearing completion.

The enclosure for the touch screen control, mounted on each blender, has been engineered for extreme ambient conditions including 131 degrees F (55C), using a dual door concept and thermoelectric cooler. In addition, a remote touch screen panel with embedded windows operating system utilizing VNC and wireless technology, also equipped for high temperature conditions, will be remotely mounted and equipped to display and control up to eleven blenders, displaying up to four blender screen simultaneously.
