Silo Blending / Mixing Systems

With an inovative approach, Bulk Handling Global helps to solve many problems associated with silo mixing/blending systems.

Industry typically uses high energy mixers / blenders to mix products, which require feed of product at a controlled rate. So in addition to the requirement of using a mixer, associated feeders, additional silos, conveying and elevating equipment, controls and switchgear, access ways and maintenance are also required. These systems tend to be high in capital cost and maintenance intensive. A simpler and cost effective alternative, is to use the silo as a blending system itself. A design that can allow for either continuous or batch blending systems.

The Silo Blending / Mixing systems provide an unprecedented technique of blending or mixing products. It combines high quality of blending / mixing that eliminates heat development and degradation of products, and also eliminates wear and reduces energy requirements. These are the most important advantages of this mixing system over high shear and high energy mixers.

Short blending or mixing time is guaranteed – typically, most products require one cycle for equalizing and two cycles for mixing. In addition, very intensive mixing is achieved by incorporating the Siletta® Discharger to control the product flow pattern in a predetermined sequence.

The Universal blender/mixer systems can be used as continuous or batch modes and there are no mechanical components in the system, i.e. no ploughs, paddles or ribbons. Therefore the issues of wear, maintenance and possible product contamination are eliminated.

In cases where products have to be wetted before discharge, a spray system can benincorporated at the final discharge. This system for example replaces the use of pug mills that tend to be high in wear and maintenance.

Universal Blending / Mixing systems eliminates the requirement for multiple silos and complete conveying and feeder systems and are suitable for mobile batch plants. They can be used for proportioning and micro additives and laboratory mixing where high accuracy of mixing is required and are suitable for blending of products from 10 Litres to 500m3. (Mobile units up to 2.0m3.)
