Charles Ross & Son Company offers the sanitary ribbon blender, featuring 150-grit stainless steel 316 internal and external surfaces, bottom discharge extruder, lantern rings, spray bar system with atomizing nozzles, load cells and a NEMA 4X Ross SysCon Control Panel. Ribbon blenders are commonly used for rapid blending of dry powders, granules, pellets and other solid forms. The machines also mix paste-like materials, wet granulations and solid-liquid suspensions. Batch components are blended within a U-shaped trough via a horizontal agitator consisting of inner and outer helical ribbons. The ribbons are precisely pitched to move materials in a well-balanced axial and radial flow pattern.
