This powder blending and batching system was built for a manufacturer of engineered refractory products. They required an automated system to blend and batch seven dry ingredients.
The customer had five existing exterior storage hoppers which where retrofitted with new screw conveyors. The screw conveyors transported their product into a five-ingredient net weigh hopper. In addition to the materials fed into the hopper, there are two loss-of-weight bulk bag unloading stations which are able to simultaneously dispense precise amounts of material. Both the net weigh hopper and the loss-of-weight unloading stations feed onto a collection conveyor for transport to the existing industrial mixer.
A typical batch consists of 500 pounds of material from the loss-of-weight unloading stations and 1,200 pounds of material in the net weigh hopper with an accuracy of +/- 0.2%.
New! Blend, batch, and mix ingredients inside an IBC, or intermediate bulk container, using patented cone valve technology.
