The Flex-Blend series is a modular inline blending, carbonating, and dosing solution which comprises autonomous skid-mounted process modules. Based on your requirements these modules can be integrated into every production line. The modular structure results in a very compact design and small footprint.

Key features

Minimum implementation effort

Minimum implementation effort

The Flex-Blend series comes with all required electrical and mechanical components in one compact, skid-mounted system. It is pre-configured, wired, and factory-tested when delivered and requires just a few connections and adaptations on-site. Talk to us about your space requirements: We can deliver Flex-Blend as separate modules and then place and install them without additional welding.

Directly control what matters

Directly control what matters

With Flex-Blend you have your mixing ratio under control and can respond quickly to process variations and disturbances. Your production benefits from the highest dynamic control precision and accuracy over a wide operating range. Flex-Blend utilizes an optimized controller structure and control valve design to directly control concentrations by adjusting the amount of injected CO2 and added de-aerated water.

Broad dosing range for all beverages from 0.1 g/L to 7 g/L CO₂

Broad dosing range for all beverages from 0.1 g/L to 7 g/L CO₂

Flex-Blend ensures complete mixing and dissolving over a wide dosing range and is suitable for all beverages requiring dosing from 0.1 g/L to 7 g/L CO2. It uses parallel control valves to achieve this wide dosing range with the highest precision. The integrated pump, a highly efficient CO2 injector, and a thoroughly dimensioned mixing section guarantee high performance.

Anton Paar sensors inside – for reliable quality throughout the whole production process

Anton Paar sensors inside – for reliable quality throughout the whole production process

Anton Paar’s Beverage Monitor 5600 with the optical CO2 sensor Carbo 520 is part of Flex-Blend. The short measuring and response times of the sensors are the basis for fast and precise controlling of mixing and dosing.

Low maintenance and minimum operating costs

Low maintenance and minimum operating costs

The used sensors are maintenance-free which reduces service activities to checking and replacing wear parts like elastomers. Maintenance can be performed quickly as valves and pumps are easily accessible.
