Why bulk goods logistics with containers is helpful in powder processing

A standard bulk container (2m³) feeds the amixon® conical mixer. The driverless transport system positions the bulk material container on the docking station above the mixer. The same container can be used to receive the ready-mixed material from the mixer. The mixing operation is largely automatic. The mixer discharges free-flowing mixing goods up to 99.99%. Except for dust residues, there is practically no contamination.

However, amixon® also manufactures classic container mixers, which are covered in another blog article.

If the charging and discharging of your powder mixer is done by intermediate bulk material container, then you can work very flexibly. The work steps component weighing, charging, mixing and filling/ further processing are decoupled from each other in terms of time and space.

Even if the different work steps are processed at different speeds or are automated to different degrees, they can harmonize well with each other if they work decoupled.

Even secondary operations such as inspection, cleaning, drying, maintenance and repair can take place independently of each other. Important prerequisites are that a sufficient number of containers are available and that the necessary storage space is available.


The mixing plant shown on your left requires little space. In the picture gallery you can see a standard 2 m³ bulk container feeding the amixon® cone mixer. The driverless transport system positions the bulk container on the docking station above the mixer. The same container can be used to pick up the ready-mixed material. The mixing operation is largely automatic, and free-flowing mixed materials are emptied of up to 99.99% residue. Except for dust residues, there is virtually no contamination.

Remark:
amixon® conical mixers, which are fed and emptied by means of intermediate bulk containers (IBCs), can also be used when the available room height is limited.


The system features three service levels for the operator. All inspections can be performed ergonomically:

  1. at the filter on top of the mixer,
  2. at the container docking station for feeding,
  3. in the mixing chamber,
  4. at the container docking station for discharge,
  5. all operations for wet cleaning and drying.

What are the arguments in a blending plant for utilizing containers for the in-house bulk material logistics?

With a container-based powder blending plant, you can work very flexibly. The areas: Charging, component weighing, mixing and the filling/processing section are decoupled from each other in terms of time and space. The sections can also be automated to different degrees. In each area, you can produce, inspect, clean, dry, maintain, and repair largely independently of other areas. An important prerequisite is that a sufficient number of containers are available and that the resulting space requirements are met.

The mixing unit itself, shown above, requires comparatively little space. 

The filling levels of an amixon® mixer can vary between approx. 10 % and 100 %. Two or more particularly large inspection doors are provided for inspection of the mixing chamber. Manual dry cleaning is done in a few minutes.

Every mixing material is different. Mixing tasks also differ from one another. Which trial possibilities can amixon offer?

We strongly encourage you to visit the amixon® factory and conduct mixing trials. Feel free to bring your most difficult products. The trials will take place on a 400 liter scale or a 2000 liter scale. We predict the best results and provide you with valuable knowledge.
