Available in sizes from 1/2- to 1,000-cu.-ft. working capacity, Ross Model 42C cylindrical ribbon blenders mix dry powders, wet granulations and paste-like materials with densities up to 100 lb./cu. ft. A variable speed, double ribbon agitator driven by a gear motor performs the mixing and heating. Pitched inner and outer ribbons produce an axial and radial flow pattern within the batch. Tightly controlled clearances between the horizontal agitator and the cylindrical vessel ensure thorough blending and assist in discharge.
