Premier Pneumatics Introduces ProBlendTM Zone Blender at PTXi 2008 / Powder and Bulk Solids Show, May 6-8, 2008, Donald E. Stevens Convention Center, Rosemont, Illinois, Booth 1328

SALINA, KS (April 4, 2008) - Premier Pneumatics introduces its ProBlendTM Zone Blender for blending or homogenizing free flowing bulk material within a hopper or silo. With its special geometric shape, the compact and simple Zone Blender provides multiple flow zones in which the material can pass through at different velocities and residence times.  As a result, the discharged material contains a uniformed blend of material from the hopper or silo.

The Zone Blender uses a combination of mass flow with funnel flow to help homogenize the blend and reduce the effect of segregation in re-circulating, batch or continuous systems, or any application requiring the blending of materials.
