  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.

  2. Make More of Your Regrind

    1 Comment


    Today’s blog energy features an article on how Process Control equipment can help blow molding processors make the most of their regrind.

    Extrusion Control


    We offer a complete Gravitrol extrusion control system for total weight and layer control. The system control can be integrated into a blender control, or provided as a stand alone system. We have engineered special 70 degree weigh hoppers specifically for regrind materials to make material flow seamlessly through the system.

    Material Handling

    RP Series Vacuum Receiver

    In addition to standard material handling equipment, PCC offers our RP Series vacuum receiver for dusty, regrind materials. The tall design (pictured above) accomplishes cleaning with conveying air to avoid carry-over of dust back to the vacuum power unit. This special design keeps dust and fines as part of the process blend.

    Batch Blending


    Process Control rises above the standard with our Guardian Series 2 gravimetric batch blender series. The G2 was developed for processors who want the simplicity of operation combined with the most accurate dispensing and superior blend homogeneity at a low cost. These features are especially important for blow molding processors, who want regrind materials to blend easily back into the system.

    Guardian Series 2 blenders have a high capacity of up to 9,000 PPH. Steep-wall, fully-welded, individual element hoppers ensure the best flow of most regrind materials. Regrind element hoppers are available with auger discharge and bridge breaker for lighter regrind. The blender software can include a regrind mode for special recipe handling and better control.
