Do you run a business that sells products that are made in part using chemical blending? If so, you may want to consider working with a company that specializes in custom blending and packaging using powder processing equipment.
Proper use of powder processing and technology can involve great attention to detail. In order to test the process itself, it may take as little as two hours determine if the specifications are correct, but it can also take as long as two weeks effectively sift, grind, and mix the materials into the right combination.
But why are such tests necessary? They can help you to determine how much it will cost to process all the materials that you need in the quantities that you have specified.
There are also specific things to consider when it comes to the actual process of powder processing. The particles that are more fine may be more prone to bunching up, which may mean more time spend sifting and achieving a smoother texture. When one uses blinding, or filling up a screen, it can keep the sifting process from being as effective as possible. In order to stabilize the product itself, it may make sense–saving the most time and being the least risky–to get rid of the fines through air classification or screening.
