Mechanical Silo Blender

  • Provided with a screw housed in a cylindrical shell, isolating the bulk material in the silo from the material inside the shell
  • Material from the bottom section of vessel is lifted by the screw and spread over the upper sections
  • Principle of blending is based on the differential travel speeds of product particles in the conical section of the vessel, and the velocity of material in the screw region.
  • Power required – 1.5 to 2 kW-hr per ton
