Mixing and blending of dry bulk materials
Mixing and blending of bulk solids is an important processing step in many industries. When bulk materials, the mixing quality plays a central role. In pharmaceutical manufacturing of solid dosage formulations (capsules or tablets), small amounts of a powdered active drug are gently blended with excipients, such as cellulose, lactose, starch, sugar, and lubricants.
With food products, many powder-form consumer products result from custom mixed batches; consider cake mix, ice tea and dry seasonings. Many processes in the chemical process industries (CPI) involve mixing or blending of specialty chemicals, fertilizers, explosives, glass or ceramics, detergents and resin compounds. This Technology Zone offers an insight into the latest innovations in mixing and blending system design.
