New mixing technique significantly reduces rework

Dinnissen Process Technology and K-Tron Proces Group introduce new variant of Pegasus End of Line Mixing.

The new variant of Pandora End of Line Mixing® (hereafter called "Pandora") is especially suited for significantly reducing rework (the practice of using previous batches of product in production runs of other products). This enables companies to realize significant savings on the costs involved in the collection and removal of rework and the cleaning costs during the production process.

Rapid, careful and homogenous
Pandora works according to the principle of continuous mixing, whereby raw materials are continuously added to and removed from an extremely compact mixer. This mixing concept was especially developed for situations in which high demands are placed on the rapid, careful and extremely homogeneous mixing of a maximum of 10 (micro) components.

It is perfect for situations where a quick and easy switchover to new recipes and the prevention of contamination and segregation are critical factors. To accomplish this, it uses several highly accurate gravimetric feeders from the K-Tron Process Group in combination with the famous Pegasus Paddle Mixer® from Dinnissen Process Technology.

Pandora will be introduced to the market this summer.
