Saving time, labor, and money with pneumatic batch blending

This article explains how a pneumatic blender works and then describes its applications and benefits and details how testing can help you select a pneumatic blender for your application.

Pneumatic blending in a bin or silo — that is, aerating materials with compressed air to mix them within the vessel — has been used for decades as a way to homogenize large production runs of a single material. You can use the same pneumatic aeration technique to actively blend an entire batch in one mixing cycle by integrating a pneumatic blender (also called an air blender) into your material handling system. Because the blender provides mixing in your vessel or dense-phase pneumatic conveying transporter, it eliminates the need for a separate mechanical mixer. The blender also minimizes material handling, reducing labor and equipment costs.
