Mixing of powders is an important process in various industries, from chemical, pharmaceutical to food and construction. The main characteristic of the mixture is its homogeneity, which is usually estimated by the coefficient variation and the lower this ratio, the better the mixture. Typically, particles of the components of the mixture differ in size and / or density. These differences cause segregation, i.e. the formation of zones in which there is a high concentration of one of the components and this affects the quality of the mixture. However, through the use of special technological methods, the negative result of segregation can be transformed into a positive one and not only reduce the mixing time, but also improve the quality of the mixture. This article discusses one of the options for the production of a multicomponent mixture with a specific schedule for loading components. It is shown that by organizing the correct sequence of loading components, you can control the mixing process. Two-step technology is used to feed components into the mixer.
