Bulk Material Segregation
Few things are more frustrating than having your blended ingredients separate as they move through your process. The resulting uneven mix usually has to be tossed. And with the rising cost of some ingredients, that waste of time and product is not something your budget can continue to absorb.
There are a number of factors that influence whether your material segregates as it moves through the process. The size, shape, density and moisture content of your ingredients; the speed of transfer; whether you convey mechanically or with air; the length and angle of the conveyor; even the presence of static electricity influences the stability of your blend. Identifying and controlling the factors that are separating your ingredients will make a difference to your bottom line.
