Sanitary V-Blenders

The V-Blender design is most often used for dry blending of free-flowing solids. The solids being blended in these units can vary in bulk density and in percentage of the total mixture. Materials being blended are constantly being split and intermixed as the shell rotates. Normal cycle times are typically in the range of 15 minutes, but can be less depending on the difficulty of blending. All are supplied with Intensifier bars to permit delumping and deagglomeration as needed. Discharge is accomplished through a manually operated butterfly valve. The valve is positioned 24 in. from the floor when in the bottom position. Appropriate safety railings, safety interlocks, Stop-Start, and E-Stop push buttons are included with all blenders. This versatile line of dry blenders is available from stock in 5-, 10-, and 15-cu-ft capacities.
