Ross vertical blenders are ideal for low-shear blending of powders, pellets, granules, fibers, and other solids. These blenders feature an auger that turns on its own axis and a mechanical arm that rotates the auger around the conical vessel. The mixing action in a vertical blender is far gentler than that of ribbon, paddle, or other horizontal blender, making it more suitable for delicate and abrasive applications. Spray nozzles may be installed for liquid addition and coating purposes. Vertical blenders are also commonly used in vacuum drying operations and can accommodate a wide range of feed forms including slurries, wet cakes, pastes, and flowable solids.
