How V-blender Works
V-type blenders are often used for intimate dry blending of free- flowing solids. It is ideal for pilot use in laboratory for small batch, various kinds, and intermittent mixing. Materials being blended are constantly being split and intermixed as the shell rotates.
Different with the traditional rotary drum mixer of blending the materials along with the drum wall in piles, which could not make the inside material blended completely. The V-type blender consists of two inclined cylinders attached together in the form of “V”. The mixing material are made to back and forth and turn over again and again in the V-type mixing chamber, when the junction is at the bottom of mixing chamber, the materials are blended together, when the junction is in the top of mixing chamber, materials are splitted into two cylinders. With the repeated rotation of V-type mixing chamber, the materials kept splitting and combining. And along the movement of shearing and the spreading, powder granules achieving the goal of homogeneity.
It includes the standard feature of no blind angle of cylinders, no accumulations of mixing material, and short mixing time. Normal cycle times are typically in the range of 15 minutes, however can be less depend on the difficulty of blending.
With the body of mixer made of stainless steel, and both internal and external surface are mirror polished, the cylinders not only have elegant appearance, but also enhance the fluidity of inner vessel. V-type blender also has the feature of less residue and easy to discharge materials.
