Traditional Bin Blending processes have historically proven to be labour intensive and slow. The reason for this is largely due to the charging and discharging of blenders to and from Intermediate Bulk Containers (IBCs). Hence by removing these stages and blending product in the bin, we are able to significantly reduce the downtime and as a result, overall productivity is increased.
IBC Blending offers a simple and effective solution. In this instance, product is mixed inside a single, contained IBC so there is no risk of environmental exposure, spillage, segregation or cross-contamination. Hanningfield Bin Blenders can solve the common industry problems associated with blending by maximising flexibility and overcoming the need to washdown between batches.
Why IBC Blending is Your Perfect Solution
> Immediate: remove finished (blended) IBC and replace with fresh IBC (ready-to-blend)
> Reduced downtime: take bin offline for washing, blender itself does not require cleaning
> Flexibility: various capacity IBCs on a single blender for different batch sizes
> Containment: product remains sealed in bin with zero exposure
> Always Ready: batches can be prepared in IBCs, ready to blend anytime
> Reduced manual handling: no awkward loading of tall V-Blenders, while all charging / discharging can be undertaken offline (outside the blending room)
> Control: HMI with recipe storage and batch records (with optional 21 CFR Part 11)
