Charles Ross’s Ribbon Blenders Get Added Features

June 10, 2012

The company’s ribbon blenders are commonly used for blending dry powders, granules, pellets, and other solid forms.

Charles Ross (Hauppauge, NY) is now offering several added features for its ribbon blenders. Updates include low-maintenance, gasket-free covers; custom bag dump station with safety grating; clamshell coupling for quick agitator removal; vacuum- and pressure-rated blenders with reinforced troughs; heavy-duty models for dense materials; and bottom discharge extruder assembly and end-wall scrapers.

The company’s ribbon blenders are commonly used for blending dry powders, granules, pellets, and other solid forms. They can also work as paste mixers, vacuum dryers, and granulators. This style of blender mixes product within a U-shaped trough via a horizontal agitator with inner and outer helical ribbons that are pitched to move materials in a well-balanced axial and radial flow pattern.
