Products: Blender, clean thyself

Article-Products: Blender, clean thyself

An auto-cleaning function has been designed into the new blender range from Ireland’s TSM Control Systems (Dundalk, Ireland). This option could interest processors requiring quick recipe changes. With the "auto-cleaning" integrated feature it is possible to change from one recipe to another without any cross examination of materials. The blender is no longer the limiting factor; instead, the purge time of the process unit determines the time required for color change.

The unit’s five-step control process entails not only automatic emptying of the hopper bins, but entire cleaning from the loader down to the mixing chamber. These blenders also have a specially designed automatic purge bypass valve to provide a back-up material supply to the process machine. Beyond the fast changeover times, the auto-clean blender also means operators need not climb on top of a machine to clean the system. [email protected]
