TrueBlend™ TB-T

Tiny Footprint, Incredible Precision Dosing and Mixing

Developed to meet the needs of small-part molders, Conair’s new ultra-small TrueBlend TB-T Series gravimetric blenders deliver precise material blends from up to four ingredients at extremely low throughputs – from just one lb/hr. to up to 100 lbs/hr. Blend accuracy is an astonishing ½ of 1 percent. At less than 24 inches tall, this compact batch blender mounts easily on a machine throat or a press-side cart for use as a central color additive blender.

The TB-T was designed with high blending precision and easy maintenance in mind. It is equipped with a 7-inch LCD touchscreen control that features Conair’s “common control” interface for quick and easy setup. Its microprocessor control can manage multiple loaders and pumps. Like larger Conair blenders, the TB-T relies on “feed forward” dosing, using multiple small dosing cycles to deliver a more precise material mix into the weigh chamber prior to mixing. The control calibrates after every dosing cycle to compensate for variations in dispense method, resin bulk density or particle geometry.

Material changeovers without removing the loading system

The TB-T bins are independent from the framework of the blender. So loaders and receivers can remain mounted to the top of the machine, while the material bins are easily removed for cleanout and resin changes.

Dosing and blend accuracy from ultra small doses to larger amounts

With a blend accuracy of ½ of 1%, the TrueBlend TB-T gives you the dosing and batch accuracy you’d expect from a gravimetric blender, but in a much smaller package. The footprint of this blender is shockingly small.

Easy-to-use control

Intuitive 7-inch touchscreen control with full color graphics allows quick and easy setup of the blender setpoints. All setpoints are displayed simultaneously. Enter the percentages of the blend on the touchscreen and the blender does the rest. The system automatically weighs the recipe ingredients in the proper sequence and maintains the correct blend relationship. Any position can be identified as one of the four material type selections, adding flexibility to your application setup. And the TrueBlend control is part of the “common control” family, meaning that user experience and screen navigation matches that of other Conair equipment – for easy training and operation by even the most novice processors.
