Orbetron blender can handle up to six materials
ODC Taking advantage of Orbetron’s microfeeding, disc-dosing technologies, this new blender is intended for extrusion applications and can handle as many as six materials. When combined with the company’s feeders, the blender uses particularly thin internal feed tubes to ensure that materials flow evenly without separating, clumping or clinging to the sides. It has been developed to handle rates of less than 100 pounds per hour. In most cases, depending on the rate of material flow, the blenders are designed for continuous dosing, with material mixing performed by the extruder screw.
What’s new? The addition of new software that controls the motor to better match the agitation movement to the flowability of the materials.
Benefits Precise blending of minute-dose materials.
