A modified double-flighted feed section is being added to the mixing rotor to increase the feed rate on a workhorse masterbatch mixer from Farrel Corp., Ansonia, Conn. The upgrade to the model 9UM (9-in.-diam. Unidrive Mixer) raises the conveying rate for low-bulk-density fillers up to 85%. The target is masterbatches for film production, where more filler means less use of expensive carrier resin. It also lets the film customer use less masterbatch for the same effect.
