TrueBlend™ High Heat

TrueBlend™ High Heat
Gravimetric Batch Blenders

TrueBlend high-temperature models allow processors running engineering plastics like ABS, nylon, polycarbonate and PET to blend these resins after they have been dried.

Until now, processors had to blend the material before drying, but by doing so ran the risk that some ingredients could separate out of the mix during the drying and conveying process.

Like all TrueBlend models, the new high-heat blenders feature a fully enclosed cabinet design assuring no pellet spillage and clean operation. Standard convenience features, such as wide access doors on each component bin, a hinged chassis access door and removable components in the mixing chamber reduce material waste and downtime during clean out.
