The Model HD-2.5-5-SS Sanitary Paddle Blender de-agglomerates, blends and conditions dry bulk solids, pastes, emulsions and slurries, achieving uniformity in five to 10 minutes typical. It handles free- and non-free-flowing materials that are dry, moist, oily, paste-like or otherwise difficult to blend, in batches up to 25 cu ft (0.71 m3).
Intended for food, nutraceutical, pharmaceutical and other contamination-sensitive materials, as well as corrosive bulk chemicals, the "HD" Heavy Duty Series machine features a heavy-gauge, stainless steel U-shaped vessel of extreme rigidity, allowing tolerances of 1/16 to 1/8 in. (1.6 to 3.175 mm) between the outer paddle edges and the trough wall, minimizing the amount of material remaining in the vessel following discharge of blended batches. The blending action achieves uniform particle distribution throughout bulk solids having poor flow characteristics, as well as solids with low or high percentages of liquids, allowing the production of smooth slurries and pastes.
