High-Volume Mixing System

March 25, 2013

This high-volume material mixing system is fully integrated with twin, high-speed, 2500-lb-capacity box dumpers, and two, 8-in.-diam discharge spouts to completely process, from introduction to downstream supply, 25,000 lb/hr of homogeneously blended material. NBE integrated automation controls every process action from container dumping, level sensing, and mix auger sequencing, to operation of the discharge valves. NBE process optimization expertise increased total material throughput per shift, improved material blend quality, and reduced labor allocation. Within the mixer, a 14-in.-diam auger mixes semi free-flowing material in a 15-in.-diam, 10-gauge mix tube. In-feed scoop blades at the base of the mixing auger, and broad-throw dispersion paddles at the top of the mixing auger ensure a homogenous and consistent blend supply to downstream processes. A 30-HP, TEFC motor ensures reliable, extended-duty performance.
