Air Blender Lifts And Turns Dry Materials
The Blendcon air blender manufactured by Dynamic Air is said to be a fast and efficient blender for mixing large batches of dry bulk materials. It can blend a 10-cubic-meter batch in just four minutes and can handle batches up to 200 tons in capacity, according to the company.
The Blendcon air blender uses compressed air to lift, turn and tumble dry materials, utilizing the high kinetic energy released when compressed air is allowed to expand rapidly to atmospheric pressure. Compressed air is pulsed into the material in an upward circular pattern. The ratio of horsepower to material blended is very low, resulting in high efficiency.
The discharge cone valve helps to eliminate dead spots during blending and substantially minimizes segregation during discharge. There are no mixer arms or blades, making the Blendcon air blender ideal for blending abrasive materials that would shorten the life of a conventional blender.
The Blendcon blending head can be installed on an existing or customer supplied silo, or it can be ordered with a standard silo or custom-designed silo to suit the application.
