MINICOLOR V volumetric and MINICOLOR G gravimetric mixing and dosing units


The demand for an excellent mixing quality and consistently accurate dosing are a must when combining additives with virgin material at the processing machine. The volumetric dosing and blending unit MINICOLOR V meets and exceeds these requirements. Mounted between the machine hopper and the feed throat of the plastics processing machine it requires very little space. A stainless steel cruciform in the mixing throat divides the main component into two streams of material. They flow together with the additives at the feed inlet producing a homogeneous mixture.


Compact gravimetric dosing and mixing unit for one main component and one masterbatch or additive in granular form suitable for injection moulding machines, extruders and blow moulding machines. With the GRAVInet MC control up to two dosing heads can be operated. The unit is based on the well tried MINICOLOR concept with gravity mixing funnel guaranteeing a homogeneous mix and eliminating separation. The dosing station for masterbatch or additive sits on a robust but extremely precise load-cell and operates using loss-in-weight metering technology. This offers operational security for high level requirements. The MINICOLOR G is insensitive to vibrations and is specially designed for mounting directly onto the feed throat of the processing machine.
