How our Blend Towers Operate


Available in a variety of size capacities and with options that meet your specific needs, our Tower Blenders are known for their reliable, efficient, fast, and accurate operation.

  • Individual ingredients are loaded into a payloader hopper or in-floor drag conveyor at the base of the bucket elevator.
  • The distributor sends the individual fertilizer ingredients to their proper storage bin.
  • The individual ingredients are stored, and now ready for the next step.
  • An NTEP approved weigh hopper collects the ingredients that make up the batch, and weighs them as a total.
  • The blender blends all weighed ingredients.
  • The weighed, blended batch is loaded into trucks, or sent back to the elevator for re-elevating into the bagging bin, etc.
