Spice Ribbon Blender

Description of Spice Ribbon Blender

Spice ribbon blender are based on a proven agitator construction that provides a triple mixing action thus ensuring fast efficient blending. The dimensions and configuration of the ribbons in ribbon blender are carefully balanced to provide a movement of material within the container that avoids dead spots and gives rapid product discharge.
The design of the ribbon blender can incorporate features required for a customer’s product or process such as: wear resistance, corrosive resistance, vacuum filling and discharge arrangements, special shaft seals, heating/cooling jackets. Ribbon blender are available in sizes 100-8000 liters in Stainless Steel 304, Stainless Steel 316 and Mild Steel Construction. Benefits of ribbon Blender Sanitary design-heavy gauge, stainless steel constructions. Bearing mounted on lanterns outside of mixing container to avoid contamination. Wide range of arability. Feeding through a hopper mounted on top of blender.
About ribbon blender design Ribbon blender are widely used for homogeneous mixing of dry granules and powders. The blender comprises a “U” tank, shaft with two sets of spiral ribbons, one inside the other. Inner and outer ribbons are perfectly arranged, that during rotation, the material reaches each corner of the trough and imparts radial and linear motion to the whole of the material to be mixed.

Our range of ribbon blender are based on a proven agitator construction that provides a triple mixing action ensuring fast, efficient blending. As the agitator rotates in ribbon blender, the material is tumbled and carried radically around the inside of the blender. The pitch of the outer ribbon moves the material towards the discharge opening. The inner ribbon which has an opposing pitch moves the material away from the discharge opening.

Applications of ribbon blender

Food and ingredients infant formula, cocoa mix, instant salad dressing, cake mixes, spices, seasonings, flavorings, gelatin … The list of food material in which our blender can speed up mix times and provide consistent uniformity, goes on and on. Variety of feed and discharge arrangements are possible to tailor to your needs.
Our blender provide the required uniformity in shorter times which means less dusting and breakage of the ingredients that can cause gastric ulcers in the animals, and bridging of downstream handling equipment. Additionally, by using scrapers or drop bottom discharge, the amount of material left over between batches is minimized, reducing the opportunity for bacterial growth.
Slurries the action within ribbon blender is vigorous enough to homogeneously distribute liquid slurries. Special high speed intensifiers can be added to the bottom to help break lumps that may be present. Proper shaft seal design is critical for handling liquids. Shaft seal choices include: mechanical, packing glands and double mechanical glands and double mechanical.
