British Rema Launches Interchangeable Blender
British Rema's interchangeable blender

British Rema Process Equipment has launched an interchangeable blender that enables the homogeneous blending of multiple granular products, dry powders, and liquids into powders, including fragile and abrasive products of varying densities and batch sizes, while meeting exacting process requirements in terms of blending efficiency.

Suitable for laboratory and small-scale production with a capacity of between 5 and 100 l, the interchangeable blender comprises a base section with motor/gear box, support structure, and cantilevered arm capable of holding a wide range of different blender body types and sizes that can be easily interchanged.

As a result, customers wishing to blend different products with different densities can do so without the capital expense of procuring multiple blenders or the resulting poor-quality blending and longer blend times associated with process compromises such as over- or under-filling blenders. Further benefits are that cross contamination is eliminated as individual products can be dedicated to a single blender cone or section.

The blender base can be fitted with V-cone, double cone, ribbon, octagonal, and IBC blender bodies. Bodies of varying sizes, in a range of 5 to 100 l, can be kept in storage on a dedicated trolley. When required, the trolley is presented to the blender base and, with a simple connection, the bodies changed in a matter of minutes.

Also available as an optional feature is an RFID that works with the controls package to ensure that only the correct body dedicated to a specific product or recipe can be used. The software will not allow the blend to run if the correct blender body is not installed.
