Many solid-solid and solid-liquid applications rely on the batch ribbon blender for fast, straightforward, and reliable mixing. Vortex ribbon blender are commonly used for blending dry powders, granules, pellets and other solid forms. They also function as paste mixer, vacuum dryers and granulators. Vortex ribbon blender mixes product within a U-shaped trough via a horizontal agitator with inner and outer helical ribbons precisely pitched to move materials in a well-balanced axial and radial flow pattern. Tightly controlled clearances between the trough surfaces and agitator tips ensure fast and thorough mixing.

Big flap opening which includes a “600*600mm” inlet port with perforated safety grating is supplied for opening and ingredient charging and pneumatic operated flap valve is equipped for products discharging. The solid ribbon agitator shaft is designed for center discharge. Scarpers welded to the ribbon ends hold a tight clearance with the trough walls.

Compared to old belt- and chain-driven designs which suffer from losses in horsepower and efficiency through slippage, direct-drive ribbon blenders are more reliable, delivering better performance and requiring less maintenance. Users benefit from electronic speed control, soft-start capabilities and overload protection.
