Tote Systems: A single-vessel powder ingredient transfer system minimizes material contamination, product handling, environmental contamination and cost during mixing, blending, shipping and storage operations. The powdered ingredient is filled into a Tote System container (IBC) and can be shipped or stored for later use. When ready for use, the container is moved onto a blender platform that cradles and rotates the closed container to mix the ingredients. A wide range of container sizes, shapes and designs is available.
