IBC Bin Powder Mixer

For the IBC Bin Powder Mixer , the possibility to move the bin in which the mix is being done is also opening interesting possibilities to reduce handling, conveying and dust emission. Those mixer design are very often used in pharmaceuticals or food manufacturing.

They indeed constitute a very simple solution, cheap, reliable and generally offer a good accessibility for cleaning in between 2 batches if needed. The Homogeneity achieved is very variable but can be more than satisfactory for some applications, especially when a preblend is produced that will be used in a main mixer. In addition, it must be noted that the product is not in contact with bearing, or bearing seal, removing a source of contamination (stagnant product released from time to time, lubricant or wearing of mechanical parts).

For IBC bin powder blender, the mixing time is typically 5-15 min. This is quite long compared to other mixers and mainly due to the fact that no agitator is involved to speed up the movement of particles.

IBC Bin Powder Mixer Introduction

FZH series IBC Bin Powder Mixer (also named by industry as Bin mixer, IBC bin blender, bin tumbler mixer ) can automatically complete lifting, clamping, mixing and descending tasks and can be matched with different specification pharma bins to satisify large batch and various mixing. Bin mixer are mixers for which the mixing driving force is achieved by rotating the whole bin, with mixing by free-fall within the rotating shell and without agitators (with some exceptions). Free fall mixers are very widespread in process industries for bulk solids dry Mixing (It gathers V mixers, Sqaure cone mixer, drum blenders).

Although other powder Mixers designs exist which are over-performing tumblers in some aspects, it remains a very simple solution for small operations or to perform a preblend for example.

The powder mixer performance, i.e. time to reach a desired homogeneity, is a function of the following operating parameters.

The working capacity of IBC bin blenders is 50-60% of mixer total volume. The filling rate is absolutely critical for free fall mixers. The bulk solids need indeed space to move during the rotation to promote the mixing. If the mixer is too full, bad CV and / or long mixing times are to be expected.

Mixer access is normally quite easy for rotating mixers. Indeed, as there is no agitator inside the mixer, inspection and cleaning between batches is relatively easy.

IBC Bin Powder Mixer Principle

The rotary body (mixing hopper) into a 30 degree angle with the axis of rotation, mixed material in the hopper with rotary turning, along the bucket wall tangential movement, have a strong turnover and high-speed tangential movement, so as to achieve the best effect of mixing. Using PLC automatic control, and set the infrared safety device and  anti misoperation device discharge valve, ensure safety in production. Through the process of material can be different in the same container, do not require frequent feeder, feeding program. Control of dust and cross pollution effectively, reduce the loss of material, hierarchical control material, optimize the production process, in full compliance with the GMP requirement of pharmaceutical production. The structure is reasonable; adopt double hoisting devices, motor rotation, flexible coupler. The performance is stable, the upkeep and maintenance and simpler, and there's no problem of leakage. Adopt programmed control system, technical parameters setting system, machine stops system for safety, automatic accurate positioning system, operation, and automatic record printing system, that fully meet processing equipment of pharmaceutical companies.

IBC Bin Powder Mixers Work

Powder Bin mixer is most popular solid powder mixing machine, having advantage of high homogeneous mixing, high material loading rate. The movable IBC bin greatly facilitate loading, mixing, unloading and cleaning. it is also able to connect with upstream and downstream equipment to form a solid granulation line, which effectively avoid dust and cross contamination by repeatedly material change-over. FZH Series IBC Bin Mixer can meet the mixing requirements for large batches and diversified varieties of products.

Hywell machinery FZH Series IBC Blending equipment is lifting type rotary mixer. It consists of base, rotary frame, driving system, lifting system and lowering system, braking system and PLC control system. It can automatically fulfill clamping lifting and rotating. When it works, push the IBC powder bin into the rotary frame. Operation on the touch screen. The IBC bin is lifted to the required height and clamped automatically. The drving system will begin to work and mix according to the required time and speed. When reaching the required extent, the mixing will stop working. Then the lifting system lowering down mixing bin and stops at the stated height. Pull the bin out, the mixing cycle is finished and will type the entire data of mixing process. FZH Series IBC blending system guarantee homogenous blending of granules and powder.

Core Components of a IBC Bin Powder Mixer

It is important to note that a bin blending system is not one homogeneous unit. Instead, it comprises of different components. These components work in unison to achieve a particular goal. Let’s break down the main components of a bin powder blending system.

1. Blending Container of IBC Bin Powder Mixers

This is the main component where the actual blending takes place. Mixing containers come in different designs and specifications. Each design and specification of the blending container should allow the maximum output of the blended material.

2. Materials charging and discharging ports of IBC Bin Powder Blender

As the names suggest these two components provide entry and exit to the blending container. The two ports should have a sealing that prevents granules and fine powder to escape from the container. Bin blender sampler is an optional item.

3. Control Panel of Bin Powder Mixing Machine

All the bin mixing systems are modern and have the latest technology control systems. The control systems ensure that the bin blenders operate automatically without much human interference.Mixing time and rotating speed is adjustable through the touch screen to ensure the best mixing result; and the system auto-positioning, auto record printing, failure report, and alarm. Data recordable and printable through a mini printer.

4. Clamping Bars of a Powder bin blender

The main role of the clamping bars is to support the bin blending system and ensure that it remains stable working.Normally, a IBC bin blending system will experience some vibrations during operation.

Clamping bars ensure that the granules bin blender will remain stable despite the vibration.

Apart from the above components, modern container blenders have some of these features include infrared safety device and the safety interlocking mechanism.
