The problems of feedstock homogeneity will be well recognised by plastic moulders. With the increased interest in the use of recycled material, Barton saw an opportunity to develop an improved static cone blender back in 2008. Since then the company has supplied over 40 blender units.
The blender benefits from zero power usage and requires no maintenance, as it works using a cleverly designed static mixing unit within the silo. Every customer requires a slightly different solution as each type of plastic feedstock material has its own flow characteristic. This property relates to a number of factors including particulate density, morphology and coefficient of friction.

Free field trials at customers' sites can be arranged and any plastic moulder who wishes to review the latest technology to improve their in-silo feedstock mixing is invited to contact Barton Fabrications to discuss their application.
