AEC gravimetric batch blenders deliver consistent performance and superior batch control. Select from the precision auger blender (100-3,000 lbs./hr. maximum blending rate) or the batch weigh blender (200-6,000 lbs./hr. maximum blending rate) depending on your application requirements. Color touch screens come standard on AEC gravimetric batch blenders with electrical options that include remote communications. AEC gravimetric blending systems supports your injection molding, extrusion or blow molding operations with precision material metering and mixing to maximize machine efficiency.

BD Series Gravimetric Blender
The BD Series batch weigh blenders are setting new industry standards for accuracy and homogeneous blend quality with quick-acting diamond slide gates, unique mix chambers, and an easy to use touch-screen interface.

With 3 different ways to enter blend recipes, the BD Series blender is perfect for Injection Molding, Extrusion, Blow Molding or nearly any other process. With its easy to clean design, the BD series blender allows you to minimize material change over time and maximize machine efficiency.

The advanced interface offers 3 modes of recipe entry:
1- EZ mode (factory default): color and additives metered as a percentage of the virgin material. (1/2% – 100% range, depending on material)
2- Percentage mode: all ingredients metered as a percentage of the overall batch. (1/2% to 100%, range depending on material)
3- Parts mode: (ratio, i.e. 500:1).
