cascade mixing

cascade mixing

[ka′skād ‚mik·siŋ]
(electricity)
A mechanism for ion-beam mixing of a film and a substrate in which the recoil of an atom from a collision with an incident ion initiates a series of secondary collisions among the film and substrate atoms, leading to transfer of atoms from the substrate into the film as well as from the film into the substrate.

In contrast to the TrueBlend batch blenders, new TrueWeigh continuous gravimetric blenders simultaneously dispense each ingredient in a recipe and use a cascade mixing technology that results in a more homogeneous blend, even when additives need to be dosed in very small quantities.
Blender simultaneously meters ingredients from weighed hoppers, using high-resolution weight-loss control, through a cascade mixing chamber where homogenization occurs without any moving parrs.
In the correct ratios, the ingredients simultaneously feed into a cascade mixing system.
Considering the cascade mixing in the continuous blender, the percentages coming out of the feeders are preserved and fed to the process (Fig.
For these types of materials, cascade mixing, which is only possible with a continuous blender, can provide a big advantage.
Cascade mixing in the new TrueWeigh continuous gravimetric blender from Conair, Cranberry Township, Pa., is said to result in a more homogeneous blend even when additives are dosed in very small quantities.
Unit meters ingredients from weighed hoppers, using loss-in-weight control, through a proprietary cascade mixing chamber, where homogenization occurs without requiring any moving parts.
*"Cascade mixing" series of continuous, on-machine gravimetric blenders is a variation of the standard gravimetric line, but with a special design intended to prevent segregation or "demixing" of ingredients that can occur from stirring or agitation of a blend of different particle sizes or bulk densities.
Blender meters ingredients from weighed hoppers (using a loss-in-weight control approach) in the proprietary cascade mixing chamber where homogenization occurs without requiring any moving parts.
