This company recently announced that over 80 ribbon blenders sized for different working volumes and bulk densities are now available from its stock. Most standard and sanitary models can reportedly ship within two weeks or less. Built-to-order custom units are also offered, including the pictured 10-cu-ft sanitary ribbon blender, which offers 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 can 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 pitched to move materials in an axial and radial flow pattern. Tightly controlled clearances between the trough surfaces and agitator tips further ensure fast and thorough mixing.
