Oct. 11, 2023
The blenders come in 17 new configurations and are customizable; hybrid models incorporate a doser.
Go Beyond Blending Movacolor moved into the blending business with 17 new standard gravimetric blenders that can handle all commonly used materials with blending throughputs of up to around 3,500 pounds per hour. Blenders in the series are designated as MBS and MHBS — a hybrid version that includes blending
and dosing in one system. To create the hybrid version, Movacolor can add up to six gravimetric dosing units. The hybrid versions use gravimetric feeders and special inserts to feed materials inline after the batch blender’s mixing chamber in the middle of the batch, avoiding the possibility of de-mixing..In the U.S., sales director John Farney represents the Sneek, Netherland-based company.

What’s new? 17 new standard configurations. The blenders also are customizable. 

Benefits Accuracy of within 0.02 percent. By adding a dosing unit, users can more carefully dose higher-cost materials, reducing waste and lowering expenses. According to Movacolor, the blenders have a compact and sturdy design, with no mechanical and/or moving parts in the hoppers. Standard versions of the blenders carry lead times of only seven weeks.
