National Bulk Equipment, Inc: Bulk material mixing system for caustic ingredients
National Bulk Equipment’s (NBE) fully-automated, self-contained, bulk material mixing system aids in process GMP validation, provides precise, automated performance, and improves operator safety.
Blends a combination of 5 highly-caustic, free-flowing powdered
additives with a sluggish flowing, high dusting base ingredient. The
caustic, free flowing additives--previously manually added to the
process--are input to the system using 5 NBE Lift-and-Seal™ drum
dumper units. A pneumatically actuated slide gate valve controls
material discharge. Automated controlling of the volumetric feeder’s
variable frequency drive gearmotor and pneumatically actuated diverter
valve ensures properly blended material is supplied at the correct
volume to the specified downstream packaging operation.
