SOMOS® MiniMix MMBGravimetric single component metering
The SOMOS® MiniMix MMB gravimetric small-volume dosing unit continuously and highly accurately meters granular or pulverulent minor components (masterbatches, additives etc.) into a freely inflowing major component (pellets). A static mixer then ensures that a homogeneous mixture of the major and minor components flows into the processing machine.
A dosing cylinder or screw introduces even tiny volumes into the process without pulsation. Thanks to the high-accuracy dosing, the proportion of costly minor components can often be reduced, resulting in a positive impact on manufacturing costs. The dosing unit is easy to operate with a highly responsive controller with 8" touchscreen. An Ethernet interface enables interactive operation.
The MiniMix MMB can be installed in various ways on injection molding machines and extruders with the appropriate control functionality. The unit is simple to install and uninstall. Changes in formulation or cleaning are quick to carry out, minimizing downtime.
