Ross tumble blenders are offered with various options such as vacuum capability, heavy-duty design for high-density applications, heating/cooling jacket, explosion-proof motor and PLC controls. As a safety feature, Ross tumble blenders come standard with electro-magnetic motor brakes. A high-speed intensifier bar is supplied for breaking up lumps. The bar includes spray nozzles for introducing minor liquid ingredients. All product contact parts are stainless steel 316 polished to 150-grit finish. The tumbling vessel is driven by a 30 HP brake motor while the intensifier bar/chopper is driven by a 15 HP motor.
In 2018, the company added protective light curtains to the blenders to provide an automatic safety shutoff whenever an operator crosses a defined security boundary.
