The MHBS 20-extrusion series is a hybrid solution developed to help manufacturers who want to improve their shot-to-shot blending accuracy while maintaining high throughput blending of main materials. It stands out on the market due to its innovative combination of gravimetric blending and gravimetric inline feeding, setting new standards for precision and accuracy in the blending industry.  

Configurable with up to six MDS Balances and specialized inserts, the MHBS Hybrid Blender is able to precisely dispense your most valuable additives with temperatures up to 70 degrees and a throughput up to 1600 kg/h. The MHBS blender achieves the highest possible accuracy by inline feeding critical additives directly into the pre-mixed material batch. The gravimetric dosing units equipped with our unique Balance technology deliver a remarkable 3x improvement in shot-to-shot accuracy compared to our MBS Blender.  

The MHBS Hybrid Blender offers plastic processors complete control over their production processes and consistently proves its value in various applications, including plastic packaging, construction, automotive and medical device production.  

Due to its key feature of inline feeding, the MHBS Hybrid Blender can significantly enhance batch uniformity, minimize de-mixing risk, and provide added traceability for critical additives. This translates to substantial material cost savings and reduced product rejects. 

The 20-extrusion series hybrid blender has all the functionalities of the regular 20-series blender, but includes a weighing mixing chamber resulting in an integrated continuous loss-in-weight extrusion control. This allows the plastic processer to measure the real-time throughput (feed capacity) of their extruder and track the consumption of materials. Also, it provides quick response to capacity variation of the extruder. When opting for a MHBS 20-extrusion series, it also automatically adjusts additive dosing from the MDS Balance units according to the extruder capacity variation. This solution provides the operator and line manager tools to get the best out of their extrusion line and brings major benefits to extrusion applications such as pipe, profile, cable, wire and sheet. 

The MBS Blender 20-extrusion series can be upgraded to a MHBS Hybrid blending system for optimal control over critical or expensive additives. This hybrid system combines gravimetric blending and dosing in one integrated system.
