TSM Control Systems of Dundalk, Ireland, said its Hi-Temp gravimetric blender is specially designed for blending plastic after it goes through a high-temperature dryer, at temperatures up to 392°F.
“For materials like PET with a drying temperature of more than 284°F, gravimetric blending has never really been an option,” said Jim O'Callaghan, managing director of TSM.
Hi-Temp incorporates high-temperature pistons, tubing and fittings. Pneumatics are located outside the main chamber of the blender.
Heat is retained inside the blender. A sealed mixing chamber and double-walled blender frame and bin keep out moisture.
The level sensor also is designed to work at higher temperatures.
