System is comprised of 8 low-profile conveyors fed by roof-mounted storage vessels with each group of 4 conveyors feeding either of 2 gain-in-weight hoppers that gravity discharge through the mezzanine level to a ribbon blender at floor level. The enclosed dust-free conveyors handle products ranging from sub-micron powders to large pellets including those that pack cake plug seize smear or fluidize with no separation of blended products. Removable screw and tube interior are smooth and crevice-free allowing for rapid thorough cleaning.
