Driven by a 75hp inverter-duty gear motor, the Ross 385-cu.-ft. ribbon blender is equipped with a double ribbon agitator for center discharge through a pneumatically operated, dust-tight knife gate valve. Stuffing boxes are packed with braided Kevlar packing and include lantern rings for air purge when handling fine powders or abrasive materials. The 2-piece cover features safety switches to prevent operation of the agitator when the cover is open. The blender is used for the high-volume production of powder blends, pastes and slurries and can function as a vacuum dryer. Options such as a heating/cooling jacket, spray bar assembly, end wall scrapers, interchangeable paddle agitator, vacuum capability, bag dump station, load cells and recipe controls are available.
