Charles Ross Introduces New Ribbon Blender

With a maximum working capacity of 1 cu ft, the unit is ideal for most laboratory and pilot-scale blending.

Charles Ross & Son Co. (Hauppauge, NY) has introduced a new ribbon blender model, the 42NSD-1S. With a maximum working capacity of 1 cu ft, the unit is ideal for most laboratory and pilot-scale blending. The multipurpose blender is equipped with interchangeable double ribbon and paddle agitators.

The vacuum-rated blender also comes with a discharge extruder assembly installed along the bottom of the trough to enhance mixing, eliminate dead zones, and enable 100% complete discharge. Ross ribbon blenders are commonly used for blending dry powders, granules, pellets, and other solid forms. The agitator’s inner and outer helical ribbons are pitched to move material axially in opposing directions, and also radially, promoting fast and thorough blending. The paddle agitators can be used for gentler mixing of shear-sensitive and friable product.
