Use this vertical blender for low-shear mixing or vacuum drying
This company’s vertical blenders are used for low-shear blending and vacuum drying. Compared to other blender varieties, vertical blenders are gentler, allowing for mixing of powders, pellets, granules and fibers in delicate and abrasive conditions. In vacuum drying operation, the blenders can accommodate slurries, wet cakes, pastes and flowable solids. Requiring only low heat to drive off moisture or solvents, vacuum drying in a vertical blender dries heat-sensitive materials without risk of thermal degradation, while also consuming less energy. The blender features a mechanical arm that rotates an auger around the conical vessel. The auger turns on its own axis. Spray nozzles may be installed for liquid addition and coating purposes. — Charles Ross & Son Co., Hauppauge, N.Y.
