CHARLES ROSS AND SON CO.: Blenders
This company has added three new tumble blenders to its catalog. The 5-, 10- and 25-cu- ft V-cone tumble blenders for intimate dry blending of free flowing solids are reportedly rated for 125 lbs/cu ft product bulk density and feature stainless steel 316 wetted parts polished to 240-grit finish. Other standard features include hinged covers, a butterfly discharge valve, TEFC direct drive gearmotor and a safety gate with limit switch.
Offered in many sizes from 0.25 to 100 cu ft, the blenders can be customized with optional features, such as vacuum capability, intensifier bar, spray nozzles, heating/cooling jacket, explosion-proof motor and built-in controls. Heavy-duty models reportedly capable of blending very dense applications up to 200 lbs/cu ft are available. In addition to the V-cone vessel design, double cone tumble blenders are offered, along with other styles of dry blending equipment such as ribbon blenders, paddle blenders, and vertical blenders.
