Aeromechanical conveyor makes batch blending fast and easy
An adhesive producer installs an aeromechanical conveyor to eliminate manual bag handling and improve production efficiency.
Momentive Specialty Chemicals Inc., headquartered in Columbus, Ohio, operates a compounded polyvinyl acetate (PVA) adhesive production facility in Portland, Oreg. One step in the facility’s production process involves adding cornstarch to a 13,000-pound-capacity batch ribbon blender that produces a slurry used for making the company’s various products. The company has implemented a remedy for the blending operation’s ergonomic and efficiency issues through the integration of an aeromechanical conveyor.
