Bin Blender Applications

When solid particles of different particles sizes are to be mixed to a uniform composition it is achieved by using bin blenders. Non sticky materials are not preferred while best results are achieved for free flowing dry powders. Hydraulic system is used to rotate and lift the bin from ground. Pharmaceutical companies frequently uses this equipment for blending bulk drugs to obtain required specifications of the products materials. Around 50 to 60 percent of the total capacity of bin benders is considered for accurate operation.

Bin blender is installed as cone shape is faced towards the ground, on upper section it consists of a man hole, and charge hole for charging the feed and bottom of the bin is provided with a butterfly valve to discharge the material after blending. In clean room operation bin blenders are given first order of preference. The main disadvantage is due to its batch wise operation condition. After charging the material, bin is lifted on to the supports of the rotor which rotates the bin for prescribed time schedule as the operation completes bin is repositioned for discharging the bulk product.
Validation trails are conducted for every specific material to have the consistency of the homogeneous mixing and to derive the time required for obtaining the standard specifications.
