This week’s entry would like to spotlight the X Series 2 Continuous Blender. The X Series 2 is designed to produce precise, homogeneous blends by weight and offers unsurpassed blend accuracy and blend homogeneity in a wide range of configurations to meet the needs of any application. For extruder throat-mounted applications, the X Series 2 blender comes equipped with an integral downcomer to preserve the blended material all the way to the extruder without demixing. For mezzanine or off-line mounting, the blender does not include the downcomer and is designed to work with a number of different options for storing the blended material prior to it’s use.

- Interchangable metering units with quick disconnect
- Brushless DC gear motors with closed-loop control for precise ingredient measuring
- Integral loading platform for mounting vacuum receivers
