Blender with diamond-design slide-gate metering assembly

The BD-2500 gravimetric slide-gate blender has a diamond-design slide-gate metering assembly that provides .5% to 100% recipe ranges for free-flowing pellet materials. The two- to six-component blender processes material at a rate of 100 to 2500 lb/hr and provides accurate metering of minor ingredients through the use of slide-gate stroke-limiting restrictors.

The blender has stainless steel removable weigh hoppers as well as stainless steel metering, weighing, and mixing components; offers dual-precision cantilever load cells; and an optimixer mix chamber and double-safety system shuts off air and electricity if the mixer door is open. In addition, the blender has an Allen-Bradley PLC-based control said to simplify operations, store up to 50 recipes, and provide metering accuracy for up to six ingredients, especially below 2%. The PanelView 550 touch-screen interface displays user-friendly, menu-driven interface screens for control and monitoring of any batch blending operation. The control has a serial printer port, and an Ethernet port is also available.
