Blending and Processing

Bulk ingredients (liquid and dry) are transferred to blending and other processes on a demand basis. The transfer can be done on a batch, or a continuous basis. The transfer systems can be instrumented to provide both continuous weight readings as well as cumulative usage figures.

The processing of the bulk ingredients may involve the following steps:

  1. Blending
2. Drying
3. Size reduction
4. Compounding
5. Polymerization
6. Crystallization
7. Filtering

The process may be batch or continuous, and may involve the addition of minor ingredients in both liquid and dry form. The minor ingredients addition may be batch or continuous, and the feeding may be controlled on a weight basis both instantaneously as well as cumulative.

The processed product may require cooling and or heating after a process step. Further size reduction screening and filtering may also be required to remove any impurities from the product.

Once a finished product has been made, it can then be transferred using mechanical or pneumatic means to storage. Weighing mechanisms can be employed for inventory purposes, and air conditioning equipment can be used to ensure a finished productís freshness.
