Paddle geometry of the new Model HD-2.5-5-SS sanitary paddle blender from Munson Machinery is customized by application for efficient performance.
Blender typically achieves uniformity in five to 10 minutes

The new Model HD-2.5-5-SS sanitary paddle blender from Munson Machinery de-agglomerates, blends, and conditions dry bulk solids, pastes, emulsions, and slurries, typically achieving uniformity in five to 10 minutes.

The blender handles free- and non-free-flowing materials that are dry, moist, oily, paste-like, or otherwise difficult to blend, in batches up to 25 cu ft.

Intended for food, nutraceutical, pharmaceutical and other contamination-sensitive materials, as well as corrosive bulk chemicals, the "HD" heavy duty series machine features a heavy-gauge, stainless steel U-shaped vessel of extreme rigidity, allowing tolerances of 1/16 to 1/8 in. between the outer paddle edges and the trough wall, minimizing the amount of material remaining in the vessel following discharge of blended batches.

The unit's rotating paddles are forced through the batch with less resistance and shear than imparted by ribbon-type agitators, creating small zones where materials are repeatedly combined as they move slowly along the length of the vessel. The blending action achieves uniform particle distribution throughout bulk solids having poor flow characteristics, as well as solids with low or high percentages of liquids, allowing the production of smooth slurries and pastes.

Powered by a 10-hp motor with a helical gear reducer, the agitator is comprised of welded paddles projecting radially from the main shaft, which is flange-mounted for easy, vertical removal, conserving floor space.

All Munson horizontal blenders are equipped with hinged and gasketed cover sections as standard, and removable safety grating with safety interlocks.

Optional internal spray manifolds are available for liquid additions.
