Manufacture Hand Sanitizer Faster!
Hand Sanitizer typically consists of water, ethanol (or other alcohol), thickener agents and other minor ingredients like glycerin. The alcohol is the bacteria killing agent and the thickeners, like carbomer, are there to provide a viscous gel that allows an effective delivery to your skin. These products typically blend together inline as they are miscible fluids that stay in suspensions easily with one another.
In light of the pandemic, producers and co-producers will need to make up production, so manufacturing hand sanitizer at faster rates will be essential. Adding more batch tanks and creating more floor space are the more costly and inefficient ways to gear up for additional production. The better approach to higher yield and throughput is continuous inline blending, and Sonic Corporation has been designing & fabricating automated mixing skids for many years.
Processing hand sanitizer using a blend skid that meters water, alcohol and other raw materials directly from their source and mixes everything while transferring to a final hold tank is a superior and more intelligent solution. Say goodbye to transferring materials one at a time and agitating with large HP mixers.
