MUNSON MACHINERY: Paddle Blender
A new model HD-510-MS paddle blender is available, equipped with four high-speed choppers provides added shear to break lumps and/or disperse dry bulk solids, pastes, slurries and emulsions containing agglomerates during blending. It reportedly handles free- and non-free-flowing materials that are dry, moist, oily or paste-like in batches up to 200-cu ft (5.7 cu m). A high-strength agitator with paddle blades configured for the application pushes material into the path of the choppers. The combined actions can break down lumpy, agglomerated or otherwise difficult-to-blend materials into discreet particles, which are distributed uniformly throughout the batch.
Built for demanding applications, the heavy duty series machine features a heavy-gauge, carbon steel U-shaped vessel of extreme rigidity, allowing tolerances of 1/16 to 1/8 in. (1.6 to 3.2 mm) between the outer paddle edges and the trough wall, reportedly minimizing the amount of material remaining in the vessel following discharge of blended batches.
