Batching and Blending - Make

More than ever before, safety and compliance are primary manufacturing concerns. Freshness and shelf-life are increasingly important. Producing quality goods at the lowest possible cost puts you at the competitive edge. Your customers are demanding greater variety than ever before. The key to sustaining performance is your ability to increase your number and mix of products.  At the same time, high priorities are food safety and security to protect your brand image and value in the market. Hardy can help you respond to these daily challenges.

Batch manufacturing involves sequentially or simultaneously adding one or more ingredients into a vessel by weight and then discharging the batch (sum of all the ingredients) to a downstream process.  The vessel can be a simple hopper or tank, or could contain a built-in mixer, an agitator, or heating and cooling jacket. Ingredients are conveyed, extruded, vibrated, pumped, hand delivered, or gravity-fed to gates or valves above the vessel. Process weighing ensures the accuracy of the mix and makes the results highly repeatable to ensure quality control.
