CHARLES ROSS & SON CO.: Washdown-Duty Ribbon Blenders
Ross offers washdown-duty ribbon blenders in many standard sizes from one-half to 1,000 cu ft. Pictured is a 1-cu-ft stainless steel model equipped with all washdown components, including the motor, safety limit switch, variable frequency drive, stuffing boxes and knife gate discharge valve. The dust-tight cover reportedly includes a charging port with safety grating, and the U-shaped trough is surrounded by a 100-psi ASME-stamped jacket for heating/cooling.
Ross ribbon blenders are used for mixing powders, grains, pellets, flakes and other dry blends. Small amounts of liquid may be sprayed throughout the batch during the blending cycle to ensure uniform distribution. Wet applications such as pastes, slurries and suspensions can also be prepared in these blenders. The versatile blending mechanism is delivered by a horizontal agitator with characteristic inner and outer helical ribbons pitched to move materials in a well-balanced axial and radial flow pattern.
