These blenders deliver uniformity for both wet and dry materials
The new line of Model 42C cylindrical ribbon blenders (photo) are designed to mix dry powders, wet granulations and paste-like materials with densities up to 100 lb/ft3. Available in many capacities, from 0.5 to 1,000 ft3, these blenders can be built for atmospheric, full-vacuum or internal-pressure operation. A full range of standard, heavy-duty and sanitary models are offered. Uniform mixing and heating are accomplished by a variable-speed, double-ribbon agitator that is driven by a gear motor. Precisely pitched inner and outer ribbons produce a well-balanced axial and radial flow pattern within the batch. Tightly controlled clearances between the horizontal agitator and the cylindrical vessel further ensure thorough blending and promote nearly complete discharge. Stainless steel 316 is the standard material of construction. Options for stainless steel 304, carbon steel and other alloys are also available. — Charles Ross & Son Co., Hauppauge, N.Y.
