The XU Series 2 Continuous Gravimetric Powder
Blender offers unsurpassed blend accuracy and blend
homogeneity in a wide range of configurations to
meet the needs of any application by incorporating
the PF Series powder feeders. It allows gravimetric
blending of non-free-flowing powder materials with
free-flowing powder and pellet materials at unprecedented metering and mixing accuracy.
The powder feeders allow rates as low as 0.2PPH and
as high as 6,000PPH. Metering augers are available
in full pitch or 1/2 pitch configurations with helix
diameters from 1/4 inch to 2-1/4 inches.
The drive system of all blender components utilizes a
motor drive with a brushless DC gearmotor and
encoder for accurate motor speed feedback. This
allows each of the individual feeders to maintain a
constant RPM and weight throughput.
The weighing system is designed with DSP (digital
signal processing) technology to filter out unwanted
noise and vibration which can cause inaccurate
feeding rates, especially at very low rates.
Incorporated into the electro-polished stainless steel
design is a patented round-to-trough feeding area
which provides more consistent mass flow for better
metering accuracy. The feeder is designed with a
steep wall, removable hopper which features a dusttight band clamp for easy mounting of hopper extensions and quick disassembly for clean out. The bottom
trough design is optimized to provide maximum material exposure to the auger.
The XU Series 2 Continuous Powder Blender is also
available in food grade stainless steel.
The operator enters the desired blend recipe at the
operator station. All ingredients are simultaneously
metered in the correct blend ratios by augers from
individual weighed PF Series powder feeders. The
ingredients then flow through a cascade chamber
which produces the best blend homogeneity.
