The MCHybrid is not just another batch blender, but a unique revolutionary concept. Let’s explain all the benefits of this concept to you in this blog. But first watch the 3D animation below to understand how this gravimetric batch blender with inline dosing systems works!
1. THE BEST OF BLENDING AND DOSING
Mixing batches takes time, because you have to measure every material independently in the weighing bin. Especially when you are using a blender to dose smaller components, like colors and additives. Measuring small amounts requires a lot of time compared to bigger quantities. Our MCHybrid concept is combining inline dosing with batch blending, to reduce the batching time of the blender. By blending the bigger components and inline dosing the smaller, you will also get a more homogeneous mix at the machine throat. Inline dosing brings a traceable solution compared to a mixing bin in a blender, where it is difficult to trace your color.
2. COMPACT DESIGN, HIGH OUTPUT
Due to a reduction of the batch time, the size of the blender can be reduced significantly. The four-component MCHybrid 30 (two blended and two inline dosed materials) for example is only 913 mm high. But did you know this system is delivering a maximum throughput up to 300 kilograms per hour? Because of this compact design the MCHybrid fits on most production machines.
3. One recipe for batch blending and inline dosing
Do you already work with our touch screen controller? This controller contains the software for all our dosing systems. You can easily program all units. On the image you will find a home screen for a two-component MCHybrid with two MCBalance dosing units. Here you can set and store your recipe on just one screen. Set dosing percentages, shot weights, throughputs, review set and actuals and start and stop production. All this in one clear overview.
4. MOVACOLOR MODULAR CONCEPT
The MCHybrid is part of our modular concept. You can mount the blender part on an existing Movacolor system with just four bolts. It even connects seamlessly to your existing controller. Our modularity brings some additional benefits to the MCHybrid concept. When using inline dosing you can even combine your blender with liquid additives or powders. Your system can be easily extended to a maximum of fifteen units on one touch screen controller. Whether you need blending, powder dosing, liquid dosing, high volume dosing or dosing pellet by pellet, it is all part of our modularity!
5. EASY COLOR CHANGE
When using a blender, a color change can take quite some time. You have to clean and empty the colorant hopper, weighing bin and mixing chamber and make sure there is no colored dust left. Color changing with a Movacolor inline dosing system is a lot easier. The video below shows it only takes you 60 seconds. Your blended main material is not contaminated with colorant and you will have your system up and running with your new color in 60 seconds!
THE MCHYBRID IN SHORT
- Reduced batch times due to inline dosing combined with batch blending
- Unique compact design, but high output
- All-in-one touch screen controller
- Matches the Movacolor modular concept
- Fast color change
- No color contamination in the blender
