Process

Dry blending is the process of incorporating dry ingredients to produce a well-mixed dry product. It is also possible to effectively add a small, controlled amount of liquid to a blend if desired. For more complex blending projects, some blenders have temperature controls, which can heat the liquid stream that is added to the bed. Furthermore, temperature controlled blenders can be used to heat the bed of powder. For products that require special handling, AVEKA has range of auger types available to load and unload the material. With the multitude of blender options available, AVEKA can handle most materials with a variety of different setups.
