Maintaining a uniform blend of dry bulk solids is a problem faced daily by engineers and operators in industries as varied as chemicals, pharmaceuticals, foods, plastics, and battery production. Even if a “good” blend is achieved, often the major problem is how to maintain that blend through downstream powder handling in equipment. The inability of maintain a blend (i.e. segregation) at the point where it is needed, is always costly in terms of rejected material, extra blending time, and defective end products.
