Schematic Blending barrier isolatorBlending hazardous and potent substances is a major operational concern for chemical and pharmaceutical plants. The toxicity levels of argochemicals, for example, can cause serious operator injury and/or fatality if the substance exposure is incorrectly managed.

Standard Group blending barrier isolator systemsThe Standard Group has a number of blending product technologies to suit a range of applications and client requirements.

Commonly, blending takes one of two forms;

  • mechanical rotary blending, or
  • gas blending

The objective is to create a homogeneous blend of two or more powders, two or more fluids and/orr at least one fluid with at least one powder.

At the larger particle size level, the Standard Group provides de lumper technology. At the smaller particle size level the Standard Group provide a range of laboratory rotary blenders and/or jet mill technology.

Our laboratory blending technologies are designed to ergonomically fit into comfortable operator workstations inside closed barrier isolator units working in a positive or negative pressurised environment. Please also see our flexible or rigid barrier isolator range.
