The Coperion K-Tron ProBlend zone blender is designed for blending or homogenizing free-flowing bulk material within a hopper or silo. With its geometric shape, the compact and simple zone blender provides multiple flow zones in which the material can pass through at different velocities and residence times. As a result, the discharged material contains a uniformed blend of material from the hopper or silo. The zone blender uses a combination of mass flow with funnel flow to help homogenize the blend and reduce the effect of segregation in batch or continuous systems.
