Dosing blending l.jpg

 Dosing & Blending

Traditional Options for Processors


The dosing choices l.jpg
The Dosing Choices

  • In general, a processor who is going to switch from pre compounded materials to raw materials will have 3 options for mixing.

    • Proportional Valve + Doser

    • Volumetric Blending

    • Gravimetric Blending


Dosing by volume l.jpg
Dosing by Volume

  • The Most Common Methods :

    • ‘Pocketed Wheel’ Metering

    • ‘Screw’ Metering








Problems volumetric dosing l.jpg
Problems : Volumetric Dosing

  • Time consuming manual calibration

  • Skilled personnel required for setting

  • Formulas and process data required for calibration

  • Assumes consistent bulk density of materials


Blending requirements l.jpg
Blending Requirements

  • Minimise labour

  • Minimise involvement of skilled personnel

  • Accurately control material usage

  • Cut waste and scrap

  • Less down time; More production time

  • Repeatability of product

  • Peace of mind

Introduction to Maguire Technology


Why gravimetric l.jpg
Why Gravimetric ?

  • Technological affordability

  • Consistent accuracy

  • Automatically adjusts for variations in bulk density

  • Calibration is an automatic function

  • Setup in minutes - not hours

  • Measures by Weight - not Volume

  • Eliminates errors calculation











Accuracy l.jpg
Accuracy

  • Every batch followed by error correction routine

  • Accuracy rises by restricting a slide gate or auger feeder

  • Immune to vibration

    1% Setting = Typical accuracy of + / - 0.05 %

Client cost analysis l.jpg

 Client Cost Analysis

Increased performance at a lower cost


Cost savings l.jpg
Cost Savings

  • Why specify a Maguire?

    Maguire now is proven as the market leader due to features and benefits at an affordable price.

  • How can Maguire help with Materials?

    Maguire gives the manufacturer the ability to blend with ease and confidence at a fraction of the cost of utilising a compounded material.


Cost saving analysis l.jpg
Cost Saving Analysis

  • Time

    5 days, 20 hr/day, x 50 weeks = 5000 hr/yr

  • Materials

    200 kg/hr = 1,000,000 kg consumption

  • Masterbatch addition

    2.0 % masterbatch used = 20,000 Kg/yr

  • Price

    masterbatch price US$16/Kg = US$320,000 per year


Cost saving analysis63 l.jpg
Cost Saving Analysis

  • Maguire

    In our experience with volumetric systems we estimate that processors while aiming to dose at 2.0% actually dose between 1.9% to 2.6%; on this basis 20% fluctuation is not unusual

  • Financial saving

    20% of US$320,000 masterbatch =

    US$ 64,000 in masterbatch saved per annum


Compound v natural l.jpg
Compound v Natural

  • The savings for companies using compounds will again be high.

  • Direct material costs savings can range from 5% to 30%.

  • Indirect costs for the manufacturer include

    • Warehouse & Stocking

    • Distribution costs

    • Re Drying

    • Materials degradation in regrind
