Batching and Blending
Batch manufacturing involves sequentially or simultaneously adding one or more ingredients into a vessel by weight and then discharging the batch (sum of all the ingredients) to a downstream process. The vessel can be a simple hopper or tank, or could contain a built-in mixer, an agitator, or heating and cooling jacket. Ingredients are conveyed, extruded, vibrated, pumped, hand delivered, or gravity-fed to gates or valves above the vessel. Process weighing ensures the accuracy of the mix and makes the results highly repeatable to ensure quality control. HESCO is pleased to offer Hardy Process solutions.
