Ribbon Blender – Powder Mixer, Vertical Blender, Spice Mixer Machine
The ABSTER™ RIBBON BLENDER is machine widely used for the manufacture of dry powder, talcum powder, granules, spice and low-viscosity paste and liquid in chemicals, pharmaceuticals, food and cosmetics industries. It’s especially suitable for mixing solids with solids and solids with liquids, Approximate two third of the volume of the container of Ribbon Blender/mixer is filled to ensure proper mixing. Ribbon Blender mixer is Suitable for Pharmaceutical Materials, Crystalline, Insecticides, Pesticides, and Food industry and heat sensitive, Chemical and Cosmetic products handling large Dry and wet powder volume. It consists of a horizontal “U” Vessel with horizontally installed shaft.
ABSter RIBBON Mixers has been developed with advanced technology to achieve high blending capabilities and is among the most efficient machines in the market. The ribbon mixing equipment can be used in either the batch or continuous flow form to achieve an even and homogeneous blend in a wide range of products.
The blending technology is widely used in industries such as pharmaceutical industries, food processing, animal feed processing, chemical, fertilizers, cosmetics, pigments, and also insecticides manufacturing. The vertical blender mixer is also important in the process of distribution of liquids and pasty products in micro dosages on to carriers.
The ribbon agitator is powered by a drive system comprised of a motor, gearbox, and couplings. Ribbon blenders are generally powered by 10 HP to 15 HP motor for 1000 kg of product mass to be blended. The specific power may range from 3 to 12 kW/m3 depending on the products to be blended.
Applications of ribbon blender
Food and ingredients infant formula, cocoa mix, instant salad dressing, cake mixes, spices, seasonings, flavorings, gelatin ... The list of food material in which our blender can speed up mix times and provide consistent uniformity, goes on and on. Variety of feed and discharge arrangements are possible to tailor to your needs.
Our blender provide the required uniformity in shorter times which means less dusting and breakage of the ingredients that can cause gastric ulcers in the animals, and bridging of downstream handling equipment. Additionally, by using scrapers or drop bottom discharge, the amount of material left over between batches is minimized, reducing the opportunity for bacterial growth.
Slurries the action within ribbon blender is vigorous enough to homogeneously distribute liquid slurries. Special high speed intensifiers can be added to the bottom to help break lumps that may be present. Proper shaft seal design is critical for handling liquids. Shaft seal choices include: mechanical, packing glands and double mechanical glands and double mechanical.
