With its special geometry in the silo hopper, the ProBlend™ Zone Blender provides ten different flow zones in which the material passes through the silo at different velocities and residence times.
As a result, the discharged material contains a blend of material from throughout the silo or hopper. The Zone Blender uses a combination of mass flow (first in - first out) with funnel flow (last in - first out) to provide a homogenous blend and eliminate the effects of segregation, even with dissimilar materials.
