Making the decision to buy new industrial equipment is a big responsibility that calls on the decision maker’s ability to weigh the available options carefully, while also keeping all the most crucial budget factors in mind. Industrial equipment is an expensive purchase and a company’s success and ability to stay in business can depend on having the right equipment working on a continual basis. That’s why it’s so important to invest in the right equipment the first time out, and really know what you are paying for. As the saying goes, “you get what you pay for,” and there is real truth to the statement. Cutting corners on quality in order to save money in the short term isn’t wise in any case, but especially not in the arena of heavy industry. Quality really matters, so the wise choice is to take time reviewing options before making any decisions.
Types of Blenders Available
As the world of machinery and technology have become more sophisticated, advances in manufacturing are making changes in the way machines work. This is seen in the world of industrial mixers and blenders too, as some of the machines that have always been a tried and true fall back are now becoming a bit obsolete.
One advance we’re seeing in this area is the use of the Rotary drum blender. These blenders mark a change in the way mixers are constructed, as these blenders do not have any moving parts on their inside area. This is an advantage, as there is no chance with these of any material being sheared away by a blade during blending, as opposed to what can happen with a paddle or ribbon blender. It may be a while before the rotary drum blender fully catches on in the US, but it is an interesting change in the industry standard.
Fluidizers are another type of mixer that marks a change in the current standards, as these mixers take up less space and use less energy than the other styles, though they do come at a higher price point.
So, there are obviously a lot of options out there in mixers today. Take the time to really review every aspect of these options before making a final decisions, as a bad purchase can indeed be costly.
