There are a number of factors that influence whether your material segregates as it moves through the process. Bulk material properties such as the size, shape, density and moisture content of your ingredients; the speed of transfer; whether you convey mechanically or with air; the length and angle of the conveyor; even the presence of static electricity influences the stability of your blend. Identifying and controlling the factors that are separating your ingredients will make a difference to your bottom line.
