How fast can my dry powder re-hydration system be?
How fast do you need it to be?
The Semi-Bulk VACUCAM® system can mix up to over 2,000 pounds of dry powder a minute.
As a simplified comparison, it can take up to 6 minutes just to hang a bulk bag. We say “simplified” because we recognize no question of speed can be answered without also considering accuracy, consistency and quality.
Traditional mixing technology can be highly inaccurate, labor intensive and result in wasted raw materials. Controlling and managing the dry materials requires manually counting bags and scaling and weighing powders. In bulk bags, much of your raw materials can be retained in the bottom of the bags. Managing this takes time and additional labor.
In traditional mixing, once production starts, making of fish eyes or agglomeration often occurs creating the need to spend time, energy and money eliminating them. Even once agglomeration is eliminated, portions of your materials is lost, often in the bottom of your tanks or in your strainers.
We’ve designed a patented method to combine speed and accuracy.
Semi-Bulk Systems designs dry liquid blending automation systems customized to your re-hydration needs. It’s not just a mixer, it’s a total system so depending on instrumentation, load cells, and flow and density meters designed into the system, we can meet any speed requirements you require without sacrificing quality.

The key component in every Semi-Bulk System is our patented VACUCAM® Ejector Mixer. The VACUCAM technology achieves high-capacity, instantaneous and complete wetting by bringing together conditioned powder and highly atomized liquid from two separate streams. So it doesn’t just mix, it “marries” particles of liquid with particles of powder so agglomeration never occurs. This saves you time, labor, material and money.
Watch How The Vacucam® Ejector Mixer Works
The dry powder/liquid mixing step in your plants no longer has to be the bottleneck in your production process. Your plants can increase throughput without sacrificing accuracy.
You can achieve”:
- Reduced batch cycle time
- High-speed production without sacrificing accuracy and consistency. Read “How accurate can my dry powder re-hydration be?
- Less material handling, resulting in lower labor needs.
- Less waste than occurs when manually scaling and weighing powders.
- Without the creation of agglomeration, your final product is exactly the same, time after time. (Batch to batch consistency)
- Speed + accuracy at any throughput level.
- Lower raw materials costs. Again, by eliminating agglomeration, we’ve helped our customers reach up to a 30% savings.
