Blending Smaller image 


Food, beverage and pharmaceutical manufacturers regularly use blending of ingredients as part of their production process. This can apply also to chemical, rubber, and confectionery production. Blending usually occurs in a vessel, often of stainless steel construction which may be heated. There will be internal agitation or even rotation and tumbling of the vessel to apply a stirring action. The moment when ingredients are added is when the greatest risk to plant hygiene occurs as a vessel lid will be open at this time. The risk is of ingredient dust escaping is controlled when the vessel is kept under a slight suction by the connection of an extraction duct connected to a fume / dust extraction system.  The RotoClone W and RotoClone N are ideal collectors especially if wet or sticky vapors are involved. If the blending applies only to dry powders then OptiFlo RC would be appropriate.
