The Model 301 is a moderately versatile single auger continuous blender designed for the thorough mixing of two or more dry solid ingredients. The blender consists of a single blending/conveying auger housed in a trough or tube.
As various dry solid ingredients are continuously metered into a Model 301 Blender, its uniquely configured helicoidal blending/conveying auger produces a very effective and efficient mixing action by tumbling the material as it is being conveyed towards the blender’s outlet. In certain applications, the design of the blending/conveying auger includes provisions for generating a partial bi-directional flow pattern to produce a more intense mixing action.
The Model 350 is a versatile, multi-purpose continuous blender utilizing Acrison’ s unique dissimilar speed, double concentric auger mechanism for mixing dry solids with dry solids and in certain applications dry solids with liquids.
As two or more ingredients are continuously metered into a Model 350 Blender, they are effectively combined into a homogeneous blend by the gentle, highly efficient mixing action produced by the dissimilar parallel motion of the dual concentric augers operating at different, but constants speeds.
The Model 350 Blender operates in a starved condition; retention time is minimal and the output delivery of the blended material is smooth and consistent.
Acrison’s Model 301 Continuous Blenders are specifically designed for use in conjunction with Acrison volumetric and/or gravimetric feeders to form a complete metering/blending system. The Model 301 utilizes a specially designed single helicoidal mixing auger for blending granular, pelletized and certain amorphous dry solid materials on a continuous basis. In operation, the rotating blending auger, housed in a trough or tube, conveys and tumbles the material with a portion of the blending auger also configured to produce a partial bi-directional flow pattern, resulting in a highly effective and efficient mixing action.
Acrison’s Model 350 Continuous Blenders are specifically designed for use in conjunction with Acrison volumetric and/or gravimetric feeders to form a complete metering/blending system. The Model 350 utilizes a modification of Acrison’s unique, dissimilar speed, double concentric auger mechanism for the thorough and homogeneous mixing of dry solids with dry solids and, in certain applications, dry solids with liquids. Even products having input feed ratios of 2000:1 can be successfully blended – from the simple and basic coating of a pelletized product with a lubricant or a releasing agent, to the mixing of a paste-like blend having the consistency of dough.
