Pictured is a ribbon blender model VRB-2 with a maximum working capacity of 1400 liters and a full volume of 2000 liters. The stainless steel wetted parts are polished to 300-grit finish for easy cleaning and elegant appearance. The gasketed cover, safety grating and pneumatic operated flap valve are all designed to facilitate convenient ingredient charging and dust-tight operation. The double ribbon agitator is precisely fabricated to produce a well-balanced axial and radial flow of powders while holding tightly-controlled clearances between the trough. The solid agitator shaft is drive to 40 rpm by a 22 kw Siemens motor. The packing PTFE sealing and air purge seal of main shaft also make sure the dust-free blending environment.
Unlike traditional belt-drive blenders which are prone to slippage and losses in efficiency, all vortex ribbon mixers are equipped with a direct drive gearmotor for more reliable performance and lower maintenance. With supplied control box, users received a production-ready blender and benefit from electronic speed controls, soft-start capabilities and overload protection without any wiring hassles.
Vortex offers many ribbon blenders with an extensive selection of optional features including pneumatic-operate covers, bag dump station, lantern ring, vacuum/pressure design, heating/cooling jacket, liquid spray bar, load cells and PLC recipe system.
