South Korea: Polymer Powder Production Two Large Vertical Screw Blenders Delivered to Chemical Producer
Ajax Equipment has supplied two large stainless steel vertical screw blenders to a major chemical producer in South Korea for producing polymer powder. Each blender is capable of handling batches of up to 8T of polymer powder and additives.
UK – Ajax’s vertical screw blenders feature twin ‘fountain’ mixing screws, with each blender handling batches of up to 8T of polymer powder and additives. The auger and hopper’s internal design work together to provide blending efficiency through optimum flow behavior and high recirculation rate. The blenders are designed for use in a dust explosive hazard environment.
Developing the design to accommodate the large batch size of materials involved, Ajax worked to ensure that the equipment met Korean standards and even provided seismic load calculations. Production of the blenders in the company’s Bolton works began just as Covid-19 began to take hold in the UK but the team showed a great 'can do' attitude to complete and deliver within the critical path of the new South Korean plant.
