Process Control, Atlanta, has developed a larger, 2 kg version of its Guardian Series 3 all-stainless-steel batch blender. The blender is said to provide easy cleanout and accurate material changes. It is available with up to four elements at throughputs to 800 lb/hr.
For user convenience, the blender includes cartridge-style metering gates; simplified, stationary loading platform; clear polycarbonate access doors; quick-removal agitator; and all-in-one removable metering unit and material hopper. The controller is an “off-the-shelf” PLC with a color touchscreen.
