Blenders for small-scale production

19 December 2016

British Rema has introduced two new interchangeable blenders designed to improve efficiencies for R&D and small-scale food production. 

The blenders feature a single base onto which a range of different body types and sizes can be rapidly interchanged. This means that correct body sizes can be selected to maintain optimal blend fill ratios if a variety of batch sizes need to be accommodated, or alternatively long clean down times can be avoided if blending different products sequentially. 

Both blenders come complete with controls and relevant guarding.

The R&D Interchangeable Blender is designed to handle batches of between 5 and 50l and is suited to use for scale-up projects from R&D to small-scale manufacturing, while the next size up, the Small-Scale Interchangeable Blender can handle batches of up to 100l. 

RFID blend software can be used for batch control and to eliminate the risk of cross contamination by tagging each individual cone with an RFID chip to match a recipe. The control software will then not allow the blending to start if the selected cone does not correspond to the required recipe.
