Enhanced Ribbon Blenders

August 7, 2012

Ross introduces several new features on its ribbon blender models including low-maintenance gasket-free covers, custom bag dump station with safety grating, clamshell coupling for quick agitator removal, vacuum and pressure-rated blenders with reinforced troughs, heavy-duty models for dense materials, bottom discharge extruder assembly, and end wall scrapers. These blenders are commonly used for blending dry powders, granules, pellets, and other solid forms. They also function as paste mixers, vacuum dryers, and granulators. This style of blender mixes product within a U-shaped trough via a horizontal agitator with inner and outer helical ribbons precisely pitched to move materials in a well-balanced axial and radial flow pattern. Tightly controlled clearances between the trough surfaces and agitator tips ensure fast and thorough mixing. An interchangeable paddle agitator can be supplied for gentler blending of shear-sensitive and friable applications.
