Modular Process Systems & Skids

Typical Inline Blending System Design

You Bring the Ingredients, We’ll Bring The Continuous Blending System

Common automated in-line blending systems that we build, include:

  • Pre-mix/neuter/raw mix
  • Major ingredient mixing
  • Minor ingredient mixing
  • Finished products

EPIC will tailor the  inline blending and/or dosing skid system to your specific product and ingredients, and integrate the system seamlessly within your manufacturing facility. In line blending and dosing systems are delivered fully assembled and tested, ready to make finished products.

Typical blending and dosing systems feature the following:

  • Accurate ingredient addition rates are achieved via either variable speed positive displacement pumps or properly sized control values
  • Raw blending and dosing system materials can be replenished without shutting down the continuous inline blending system
  • Modules can be arranged in many different ways to accommodate rooms of different aspects ratios
  • All raw blending system materials unloading and product delivery hardware are self-contained on the module
  • The blending system can easily be relocated across the plant or across the country as changing business needs dictate

EPIC will team with you to fully extract the following:

  • All ingredients and finished products with physical property data including:
    • Density
    • Static and kinematic viscosity at processing temperature
    • Vapor pressure
    • Closed cup flash point
    • Solubility data
    • MSDS data
  • Percent of formula of all ingredients for all finished product SKU’s
  • Minimum and maximum packaging rates (in terms off finished product volume or weight)
  • Mean time between product SKU changeovers
  • Ingredient addition accuracies desired
  • A listing of known critical processing information based upon past experience

Minor Ingredients Dosing P&ID

The EPIC Continuous In Line Blending System can be used to mix:

  • Viscous fluids
  • Non-Newtonian fluids
  • Organic and inorganic raw dosing systemmaterials
  • NFPA classified hazardous raw materials
  • Flammable raw materials
  • Dry ingredients
  • Sanitary systems
  • Industrial chemicals

Depending on your needs, you can also opt to add the following to your standard in line blending equipment:

  • Sanitary construction
  • Heated and insulated
  • Agitation
  • Special alloys
  • NFPA classified area
  • Integration to host control or data collection system
  • Nitrogen blanketed

EPIC Creates Minors Dosing Skid for a Fortune 500 Company

A line operator configures an inline blending system

EPIC created a minors dosing system that doubled the number of products the client could offer at half the cost of several traditional minors mixing systems and improved the plant’s ability to switch SKU’s more frequently.

Read the full case study to learn about how EPIC used a limited budget and limited floor space to create a minors dosing skid using mixing technologies that doubled the flavors in an existing facility.
