New features are being offered on a range of ribbon blenders, which are used for rapid blending of dry powders, granules, pellets and other solid forms.

The blenders, supplied by mixer specialist Charles Ross, can also mix paste-like materials and solid-liquid suspensions. Materials are blended by a horizontal agitator consisting of inner and outer helical ribbons within a U-shaped trough. The ribbons are pitched to move materials in a well-balanced axial and radial flow pattern.

Charles Ross says that model 42N-120SS, is now equipped with a solid agitator shaft with ribbons having angled leading edges to prevent material build-up, scrapers welded to the spokes and ribbons, having a close tolerance (1/8’) to the end walls and clear view polycarbonate on the cover and shaft guards. The cover can also include ports for ingredient additions, lights, spray system, venting and vacuum transfer.
