GEA's blending technology is further extended with our range of post hoist blenders. All of the features and benefits of the pedestal container (IBC) blenders are repeated with the post hoist range, with the added benefits that the IBC can be elevated post-blending to allowing for direct discharge into a downstream process or vessel.
By utilizing a post hoist during blending, it is then possible to perform discharge operations directly after homogeneity has been achieved.
A common application is to allow blended material to be discharged through a mill or sieve into a receiving IBC. The IBC is aligned and clamped to the IBC blending cage, before being docked with the BUCK® active valve on the inlet of the mill. Controls and interlocks for the BUCK® valve are managed through the post hoist control system
