  1. Batch Blender with Auger Metering For Clumpy Material

    Leave a Comment

    “TAKE 2”, GOT CLUMPY?  That is, do you frequently have plastic pellets or regrind material that clumps together making it difficult to feed?

    In February of last year we supplied several unique batch blenders that integrate the cost effective 12kg, 5 component Guardian Series 2 Batch Blender with auger metering. That design incorporated a remote mezzanine mounted material multi-hopper, due to customer height restrictions.


    The latest version incorporates cylindrical material hoppers mounted on the blender base along with auger feeders for each component. As before, the blender base includes a weigh hopper and mixing chamber. AC motors equipped with variable frequency (VFD) drives allow frequent motor starting and stopping without overheating. As usual a powerful, off the shelf, color touch screen control provides user a friendly blender interface.

  3. Special 5kg G2 Batch Blenders Going Through Production


    Process Control currently has 11 special 5kg Guardian Series 2 Batch Blenders going through production for a company in the Midwest, to be shipped late next month.  In addition to standard supply hoppers, these blenders have been fitted with regrind feeders equipped with horizontal cross-auger and AC drive for difficult to feed regrind material.  The blenders will also have special touch screen control panels with a 55°C rating, meaning  that the panels will be contained in an air conditioned enclosure in order to operate in extreme conditions.  Here are some pictures of the blenders in progress.   We will have an update with the special control panels in the coming weeks.
