New vibratory-feeder-based blender from Process Control Corp., Atlanta, comes with a color touchscreen control and can be equipped with an integral weighed downcomer for extrusion control. Each hopper and feed system is mounted on a load cell, making the vibratory system more accurate than a batch blender and almost as accurate as PCC’s flagship PCC X-Series continuous blender. The price point is also between that of a batch and a continuous blender, making the vibratory unit an excellent choice for “difficult” materials like regrind and dissimilar materials that tend to de-mix in a batch blender. The V-Series will be available either with a small frame with four to six material elements and 800-lb/hr throughput, or with a large frame with four to six material elements for 3000+ lb/hr.

The integral sampling chute allows for diversion of material away from the process for rate calibration. The V-Series non-proprietary control system provides for total automation of recipe entry and storage, inventory control, and process monitoring. Look for it at NPE2015 next month in Orlando.
