Fristam provides a range of different products used in the food and beverage production industry. It is a company that is well known for the selection of positive displacement and centrifugal sanitary pumps they provide, but they are equally recognized for their line of mixing and blending equipment.
There are several options to consider in Fristam powder blending equipment and solutions. All of the designs are engineered and manufactured with quality, precision, and reliability in mind. The reputation of the entire line also includes low maintenance types of equipment and systems, which means they are a low-cost addition to any processing system, and they tend to have a very long life cycle compared to other products on the market.
In many types of applications, the powdered material has to be incorporated into a liquid or fluid stream. For these types of applications, a powder induction system is often the best choice. These systems are carefully engineered and designed to prevent plugging, a common issue when introducing a powdered component into liquids in a system.
In-line blending is another option for mixing powders into liquids. This equipment provides the blending required for both powders and liquids, while also allowing the system to continually mix the blended powder with the liquid stream on an ongoing basis.
The Shear Blender
The Shear Blender is the in-line option in Fristam powder blending. This is a compact unit that completely blends the powder through the use of high speeds and a unique rotor-stator chamber that prevents material from clumping or sticking to the inside and bottom of the blending chamber.
Once wetted, the entire mixture, which is completely blended, is introduced to the fluid stream. This is done in one pass, which makes this option in Fristam powder blending equipment a fast, energy, and time efficient option for any system.
