New Ribbon Blender Meets Sanitary Standards
Munson's model HD-3.5-7-S316 ribbon blender

This new ribbon blender meets sanitary standards and blends up to 65 cu ft of powders, pastes, or slurries. The model HD-3.5-7-S316 is constructed of #316 stainless steel with continuous welds having 0.25-in. radii polished to 150 grit, a #4 (-32 Ra) interior surface finish, and external removable seals.
The blender's 2:1 length-to-diameter ratio distributes ingredients uniformly during loading, blending, and discharge. It forces a split double-helical agitator through stationary material, producing homogeneous blends in typically 5 to 6 minutes. Tight tolerances of 1/16 to 1/32 in. between ribbon blades and the vessel wall minimize residual product in the trough following discharge, reducing material waste and cleaning time.
The unit is equipped as standard with a hinged and gasketed cover with safety interlocks, and available to pharmaceutical and USDA Dairy standards, with continuous welds finished up to 240 grit and #6 or electropolished interior surface finishes.
Other options include a dust hood inlet with removable grating for ease of loading, spray lines for liquid additions, multiple discharges, special drive arrangements, and CIP manifolds.
The blender is available sizes ranging in capacity from 1 to 1000 cu ft.
