Designed specifically for fully automated introduction, transfer, mixing and blending of multiple, sluggish materials, this NBE integrated mixing system produces such homogenous blends that downstream production scrap is virtually eliminated, according to the manufacturer. An NBE lift-and-seal gaylord discharge system with a dust-tight, custom discharge hood introduces the material to the transfer bin. An integrated agitator and vacuum pump transfer system supply material to the high-volume material mixer. Within the mixer, a 16-inch diameter auger mixes material in a 17-inch diameter, 10-gauge mix tube. In-feed scoop blades at the base of the mixing auger, and broad-throw dispersion paddles at the top of the mixing auger ensure a homogenous and consistent blend supply to downstream processes.
