Octagonal Blender

Octagonal Blender

The OCTAGONAL BLENDER is an efficient and versatile blending machine for the mixing and lubrication process of dry granules homogeneously. Two third of the volume of the Cone Blender is filled to ensure proper mixing. The Octagonal Blender Machine gives the best result for granules due to the container’s prolonged speed and octagon shape. It can be used for Pharmaceutical, Food, Chemical, and Cosmetic products, etc.

In pharmaceutical Octagonal Blender, the granules come from all sides due to the product container’s octagonal shape; hence, RPM’s requirement is less. Suitable mainly for Crystalline & Granular type material. This type of material gets sufficient continuous movement due to their shape if containers have only slow motion and will result in adequate quality blending/lubrication of granules.

Octagonal Blender, due to its octagonal shape is designed to process larger volume of material. It occupies less space compared to other similar blenders like ‘V’ and Double Cone. 

Power consumption is also less. The blending takes place at low speed during operation. It is well balanced even in higher capacities. It is very useful for pharmaceutical industries wherein gentle blending of dry granules of powder is to be done. It is a slow speed blender and has removable type baffles mounted on a rectangular shell.

The important feature of the machine is easy to wash in place. Octagonal blender is supplied with a bin charging system or can be designed for vacuum charging. Dust free charging system is also incorporated, which is a completely closed system for charging and discharging of powders or granules. 

The power consumption is comparatively lower than other similar type of blenders. The machine basically consists of shell welded with conical Octagonal shape ends and supported with sturdy supports on both side. 

The right hand side shaft is connected to a standard gearbox by means of chain and sprockets, which in turn is coupled to an electric motor. The whole drive assembly is covered with S.S. side panel. The inside portion of Octa body is mirror polished and the outside surface of Octa body; frame & guards are matt polished. The material to be mixed is charged in machine either manually from top or bin charging system or vacuum charging system and then the port is locked positively. Then blender is started to preset blending time. At the end of process, machine is stopped and the product is transferred to process containers by opening the butterfly value.

The Octagonal Blender Machine manufactured by us at Bombay engineering works is entirely suitable for the mixing of granular products. The machine also offers great flexibility of operations as well as easy cleaning and maintenance. Simple structure with GMP-compliant design further enhances the functionality of the machine.

This Machine has been developed for mixing of various types of granular products. The machine is efficient and versatile used in mixing and lubrication processes in various industries. Some of the main industries of use include pharmaceutical production, food industries, chemical processing and also making of cosmetic products.

Octagonal Blender equipment has an octagon shaped body with a rectangular central portion. It is equipped with baffles that enable fast and efficient mixing as well as rapid charging and discharge ports with suitable butterfly valves. The equipment is highly suitable for areas where gentle blending of dry granules or powder is required.
