Ribbon Blender equipment – Revolution in Manufacturing Industry

The ribbon blender machine comprises of a horizontal U shaped trough and a specially developed a double helical, fabricated ribbon agitator that rotates within the trough. The machine design is based on a proven agitator technology that efficiently achieves triple mixing action and ensures fast and efficient blending.

The equipment dimensions and design of the operating parts are well balanced to provide balanced material movement within the container and avoids dead spots while rapidly discharging the product.

The ribbon mixer machine is made with user friendly features such as wear resistance, corrosion resistant, vacuum filling and discharge arrangements, special shaft seals, heating and cooling jackets and in a variety of sizes and models for specialized applications. The operating capacity of the ribbon blender mixer ranges from 100 liters up to 8000 liters capacity, and it is constructed with stainless steel for maximum durability.

Benefits of the Ribbon Blender Equipment

  • It is developed in a sanitary design ,heavy gauge stainless steel
  • The bearings are mounted on laterns outside of the mixing containers to avoid any possible contamination.
  • Wide range of arability
  • Feeding through a hopper mounted on the top of a blender
  • Achieves relatively short mixing time
  • Good mixing with attrition and improved mixing efficiency
  • Batch or continuous mixing and they have low maintenance costs
Ribbon Mixer Operation The machines are widely used for homogenous mixing of dry granules and powders and are thus may also act as powder mixers, spice mixers and spice blenders.As the agitator rotates in the ribbon blender, the material is tumbled and carried radically around the inside of the blender. The pitch of the outer ribbon directs the material towards the discharge opening. The inner ribbon which also has an opposing pitch moves this material away from the discharge opening. This alternating movement creates very efficient mixing operation. Applications of the Ribbon Blender

The equipment is used in the food and ingredients infant formula, cocoa mix, instant salad dressing, cake mixes, spices, seasonings, flavorings, gelatin and many other food materials.

Industrial Mixers for Talcum Powder

The talcum powder is the highly refined, powdery form of soft earth mineral. It is one of the most widely used products known as the baby powder. The industrial mixers for talcum powder are high shear mixers, able to achieve a short mixing time with attrition of the product.

Pharma Powder Mixing Equipment

There is a wide range of applications of the chemical powder mixing equipment and the choice of mixer may be determined by various factors. The ribbon blender mixer has emerged as a leading mixing technology able to homogenize the bulk powder materials, improve powder flow characteristics, , quality , consistency and improve efficiency in pharmaceutical tableting process. It is therefore widely used as a food ribbon mixer, lab mixers for chemical and cosmetics mixers to effectively blend powders and granules.  Paddle blenders also utilize the same technology, as they can mix solids with solids, as well as solids with high or low percentages of liquids to produce smooth paste or slurries.
