Most of vortex blenders have the availability of design for vacuum and pressure application, such as ribbon blender, plough blender, conical screw mixer. The blender can be constructed in materials of construction to suit the application for which it will be used. For example, jacket type paddle mixer could be used to heat and dry the construction materials such as mortar, rubber and etc.
Meanwhile, special finishes up to a mirror finish are available for the exterior and interior surfaces. These stainless-steel treatments most used for food and pharmaceutical industry. Jacket type ribbon blender or jacket type conical screw mixer could transfer the heat from heating jacket to the materials inside the vessel quickly and with the homogeneous mixing action, materials being mixing could be heated uniformly. And it will not produce heat spot.
A variety of standard or special discharge valves may be located in the bottom center of the trough. The discharge valve assembly must provide a proper seal to prevent materials leakage and maintain a safe working environment. Liquid-tight ball valves are appropriate for most vacuum and pressure requirements. At last, drives are designed to meet the bulk density of the materials to be blended. Vortex manufactures these in a range size from 50L to 10000L working capacity.
Vortex blenders are supplied with twin agitator design possibilities, standard options include jackets for heating or cooling, food grade construction, covers to meet a customer’s production needs, speed adjustable function and torque controlling coupling for full load starting.
Vortex company has helped for many customer installing vacuum agitator dryer. One of the vacuum agitator dryer’s main function is to optimize the heat transfer efficiency. The temperature range from 40 degree to 200 degree can be achieved while the paddle or interchangeable ribbon thoroughly blend the products.
