Ribbon blender

April 5, 2012

A multi-purpose unit equipped with interchangeable double ribbon and paddle agitators, the Ross 42NSD-1S ribbon blender has a maximum working capacity of 1 cu. ft. to meet most laboratory and pilot-scale blending requirements. The vacuum-rated blender comes with a discharge extruder assembly installed along the bottom of the trough to enhance mixing and discharge, and eliminate dead zones. The agitator’s helical ribbons are pitched to move material axially in opposing directions, as well as radially. fex0412ts1_inbody.jpg

The paddle agitators deliver gentle mixing suitable for shear-sensitive and friable applications. Commonly used for blending dry powders, granules, pellets and other solid forms, the blender is direct-driven by an inverter-ready gear motor. Options include sight/charge ports, safety gratings, pneumatically operated covers and discharge valves, sanitary construction, spray bar assembly, heating/cooling jacket, caster wheels, explosion-proof operator stations and HMI/PLC systems.
