4 Tips For Buying A Blending Machine

Industrial blending machines have a wide variety of uses in everything from warehouses to processing plants. But what if you’ve never purchased one before?

How can you be sure you’re getting a good product at an acceptable price? Here are just a few tips for finding the right blending machine.

1. Know Your Budgetary Limits

How much can you afford to spend on a blending machine? The listed price of the product isn’t always the final price you’ll pay overall, so make sure you factor things like shipping, installation and insurance into your budget.

It might also be prudent to think about recurring or long-term costs like cleaning materials and maintenance tools. How much will you be spending on your blender now and in the future?

2. Consider Your Project Requirements

Paddle mixers aren’t the same as ribbon blenders. Continuous mixers have different functions and limits than non-continuous ones.

While all blenders have the same general function, there can be major variety in terms of how they actually operate, and it’s up to you to figure out which blender type is best for your project.

3. Read the Fine Print

A good warranty can save you a lot of headache in the long run. Here are some questions to ask when perusing the fine print:

– What does the warranty cover in terms of parts? Will it cover everything or only certain pieces, motors or electrical components?

– Are there any actions you can take that will void the warranty? For example, if something breaks through human error rather than mechanical failure, will the warranty still cover the repair? What happens if you fix it yourself rather than waiting for a technician?

– Who’s responsible for return shipping costs if you have to send the blender back?

4. Don’t Forget Safety

Last but certainly not least, don’t overlook safety features when buying an industrial blender. Things like overfill lids and temperature gauges can stop you from harming yourself, your staff and your surrounding work environment. Some safety features might actually be required according to company or OSHA regulations. Make sure you do your research.

These are just a few things to keep in mind as you search for the right blending machine. As you can see, there’s a lot to consider, so don’t make your decision lightly. Take your time and do it right.

Gratitude And Bliss

GRATITUDE

“Gratitude turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos into order, confusion into clarity…it makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.” Melody Beattie

Saying Thank You is One Good Way of Making Friends 

Even before we could grasp the true meaning of this grand virtue, we were already taught how to say “thank you”. This reflects how valuable gratitude is to everyone. For instance, a study of 800 participants opinionated that people who exhibit themselves as being “grateful” are quite likeable (Dumas, Johnson, & Lynch, 2002). Particularly, it is one of the top 4% of agreeable traits. Understandably, being “ungrateful” was rated as a very odious personality trait.

Indeed, thankfulness is one great way of engendering productive relationships. Surrounding yourself with people who appreciate the beauty of life in all its vibrant facets does well for your own as well as others’ perspectives. You are also likely to draw others towards your inner circle if they can sense your approving outlook.

Thankfulness Buffers Stress and Depression while It Increases Social Support 

A pertinent research verified the link between gratitude and stress, depression, and social support (Wood, Maltby, Steward, Linley, & Joseph, 2008). The results from the longitudinal study concluded that the participants who were more grateful had lower levels of stress and depression. Furthermore, the 3-month-study found out that those who practiced thankfulness had stronger social support. The attitude of gratitude can do a myriad of positive things. With a strong optimistic perception, you can better be equipped in managing challenges in your daily routines. This amiable characteristic then encourages fruitful connections with other individuals.

Thanking Your Path through Bliss

Numerous studies have centered on the happiness effect of gratitude. Many experts have worked on the causation of thank you exercises and mood elevation. For instance, writing gratitude lists can significantly increase subjective well-being (Balinggan, 2015).

Basically, the ability to be keenly aware of positivity is quite potent in feeling better. The decision to look at the brighter side leads to actions and emotions that can work towards a solution, thereby a healthier and happier mind. You can also help improve others’ moods by noticing the goodness in them. This amazing domino effect can then strengthen individuals towards healthier communities.

With these findings, gratitude is an excellent alternative to the assumption that our brains are hard wired to be negative. By incorporating the thankfulness habit in our day to day activities, neuroplasticity can accomplish a very beneficial rewiring.

It is then no wonder that social agents such as schools, churches, and various support groups highlight the significance of gratitude:

*Cicero, a famous Roman philosopher and politician aptly said, “Gratitude is not only the greatest of virtues, but the parent of all the others”.

*The Holy Bible in Thessalonians advocate, “in everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you”.

* The French writer and historian, Alexis de Tocqueville dubbed gratitude as “a habit of the heart”.

In every race, religion, country, and home, gratitude is highly esteemed. I’m sure you do too. So take a moment and think about what you are thankful for.
