Ribbon Blenders for large-scale powder blending, paste mixing and vacuum drying

Large-scale Ross Ribbon Blenders built up to 1,000 cu.ft. working capacity are ideal for high-volume production of powder blends, pastes and slurries. These versatile blenders can also function as vacuum dryers and are engineered for fast mixing, convenient discharge, easy cleaning and low maintenance.

Shown is a 385-cu.ft. Ribbon Blender driven by a 75HP inverter-duty gearmotor. It is equipped with a double ribbon agitator designed for center discharge through a pneumatically-operated dust-tight knife gate valve. Stuffing boxes are packed with braided Kevlar packing and include lantern rings for air purge when handling fine powders or abrasive materials. The two-piece cover features safety switches to prevent operation of the agitator when the cover is open.

Ross is the world’s largest manufacturer of Ribbon Blenders with close to a hundred standard and sanitary models always available from inventory for immediate rental or purchase. Customizations such as heating/cooling jacket, spray bar assembly, end wall scrapers, interchangeable paddle agitator, vacuum capability, bag dump station, load cells and recipe controls are offered.
