By blending different product components can be unified. Advantages of continuous blending are process-oriented handling, direct treatment and low investment costs.
Continuous blending of free flowing products
Continuous blending process
With the aid of several dosing units it is possible to realise a parallel blending process. The desired blending ratio is entered in % of total flow rate. For each dosing unit a specific target flow rate is calculated, which is regulated online. The product components flow continuously and simultaneously into subsequent conveying machine – the desired composition is achieved in one continuous process.
Homogenisation is gained because of direct mixing in preset proportions: Components are constantly unified in these same proportions.
The Flow Controller FC3 is suited for application as dosing unit with free flowing bulk. It regulates the flow rate continuously, without interruption of the product stream. Changes in density or ease of flow are compensated by direct readjustment. Comprehensive functions for error detection make sure that operation is highly reliable.
