Continuous blender increases production, diminishes heat buildup

A custom processor installs a rotary continuous blender in a new processing line to eliminate heat buildup and increase production.

CJB Industries, Valdosta, Ga., custom-formulates, processes, and packages chemicals and provides research, development, and engineering services. CJB's newest production line is for a high-loading solid that combines 50 percent liquid acid with 50 percent dry clay product, resulting in an 8- to 16-mesh dry corrosive granular material that resembles kitty litter. The customer for this material formerly had it produced by another custom processor that used a batch tumbling mixer in its processing line. But the original custom processor couldn't meet the customer's needs because the material's long residence time in the batch mixer caused heat buildup, often ruining the material. As a result, the original custom processor wasn't producing the quantity of material that the customer needed. To meet the customer's needs, CJB set up a new production line and installed a rotary continuous blender to properly produce the material.
