Fluidizing Paddle Blenders

Mix Faster, Better, Smarter

OptimaBlend® by American Process Systems is the newest and most innovative addition to the industry’s most comprehensive line of mixing equipment offering a balance of mixing speed and efficiency with low equipment cost and consumed power.

OptimaBlend® eliminates roll apart segregation caused by gravity when mixing ingredients of greatly varying density, shape and size by fluidizing. Fluidization is achieved by a combination of a defined geometry lifting action with a triple paddle, multi-zoned rotor turning about 80% faster than a traditional ribbon blender. Incredibly precise low Cv blends are achieved in less than 60 seconds for most powdered ingredients.
