Liquid-solids blending with high-solids-content media

By Mary Page Bailey and Gerald Ondrey |

Ekato Systems

The VPT vertical process blender (photo) is said to provide 25% less torque demand and a discharge of up to 98% when compared with horizontal drum blenders, making it suitable for mixing pasty products with high solids content. The VPT features a heavy-duty, top-entry agitator, combined with a baffle system designed for liquid and solids blending to reduce both operation costs and batch times. The high impeller efficiency reduces energy input into the blend and avoids an excessive temperature rise during the batch cycle. Furthermore, the blender includes no wetted seals, which means an overall longer equipment lifecycle. — Ekato Systems GmbH, Schopfheim, Germany
