Blending and Coating Stone, Clay, and Glass in the Rollo Mixer
The lighting industry has used the Continental Rollo-Mixer ® Batch Mixer for many years to blend glass cullet and other constituents that are formed into products like glass insulators. These glass blends contain a wide variety of particle sizes and densities along with minor ingredients that must be uniformly mixed going into the furnace, so that the viscosity of the molten glass coming out of the furnace is consistent and uniform. Treating clays with liquid additives is ideal with Continental’s unique Free-Fall Processing ®. This award winning coating technology allows our customers to apply small percentages of expensive liquids onto all of the particles’ surface area, thus creating a uniformly coated finished product.
