ROSS: Ribbon Blenders
Ribbon blenders from this company can be used in the process industries for rapid, thorough and dust-free blending of powders, granules, pellets, and other bulk solids. Available in many standard sizes (from 1/2- to 1,000-cu-ft-. working capacity), the blenders are reportedly built for a range of bulk densities and applications with many customizable features to meet any special or heavy-duty requirements.
Shown is a ribbon blender model 42N-270 with a maximum working capacity of 270 cu ft and a full holding capacity of 300 cu ft. The stainless steel wetted parts are polished to 150-grit finish for easy cleanability. The gasketed three-piece cover, safety grating and pneumatically operated 10-in. knife gate valve are all reportedly designed to facilitate convenient ingredient charging and dust-tight operation. The double ribbon agitator is 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 driven to 20 rpm by a 100 HP TEFC motor.
