New design enhancements are claimed to make the MicroBlender from Maguire Products Inc., Aston, Pa., more reliable and durable. This batch gravimetric blender, claimed to be the world’s smallest, has capacity of up to 100 lb/hr. It now comes with jam-proof pneumatic vertical valves that dispense ingredients. An elastomeric “boot” at the bottom of the valve enables jams to clear more readily than with other vertical valve designs. The MicroBlender also now comes with stainless-steel hoppers that resist the surface damage and corrosion that could occur with the previous powder-coated carbon steel hoppers.
