Ribbon Mixers are basic industrial mixing machine to blend various types of dry raw materials homogeneously and smoothly. FEEDTECH Ribbon Mixers are produced with different capacities to meet the variable requirements of companies.
The main feature of ribbon mixer is, its intense and slow mixing effect. Therefore, Ribbon Mixers, are the best options for different products with various volume densities and/or fragile structures that should be mixed smoothly with high uniformity. Ribbon blenders are actually used in many industries and applications: pharmaceuticals, food and bakery, cosmetics, plastics, spices, mixes for drinks, cements grouts and mortars, coffee and tea, tobacco…
does it work?
The Ribbon Mixers consist, basically, of a trough-shaped frame (usually 2 to 3 times longer than it is wide) with a semicircular bottom, fitted with a horizontal longitudinal shaft on which are mounted arms supporting a combination of ribbon blades set at a fairly close clearance to the semicircular mixer body (frame) so that no layer of material remains on the bottom of the ribbon mixer. The most effective design of ribbon layout is the double spiral in which the outer ribbon moves the product in one direction and the inner ribbon moves it in the opposite direction. The ribbons rotate and move materials both radially and laterally to insure thorough blends in short cycle times. Ribbon agitators are used for blends that will be between 40% and 70% of the rated capacity of ribbon blender.
