Specialty Chemical Skid Examples

In-Line Blending Skid Adds 20 Flavors at Minimal Cost

A Fortune 500 consumer products company required the addition of 20 flavors to their product mix with a limited budget and floor space. By using liquid blending ingredient trees instead of tanks, capitol costs were minimized. Pre-engineered, field-proven in blending systems from EPIC provided a fast, economic solution that allowed the client to drastically expand their product portfolio with minimal equipment additions.

Key Features: Pre-mix blend skid, in line liquid blending system, coupled blending and filler system, back pressure control, product-to-product washout, liquid metering system.
