Awesome Features Offered on Vortex Ribbon Mixer


Some new characteristics are being offered on Vortex Ribbon Blenders for customers requiring extra precision and efficiency. Ribbon blenders are mainly used for fast blending of dry powders, pellets, granules and other solid forms. The ribbon blenders also blend paste-form products and solid-liquid suspensions. The materials are being blended by a horizontal agitator consisting of inner and outer helical ribbons within a U-shaped trough. The helical ribbons are precisely pitched to move materials in a well-balanced axial and radical flow pattern. The inner ribbons move the materials from the middle to two ends, while the outer ribbon move the materials from two ends to the middle of vessel. Thus, the blending action form a homogeneous blending pattern.
