Charles Ross & Son Co. (Hauppauge, NY) is promoting three sizes of its V-Blenders, which the company says are most often used for the dry blending of free-flowing solids.

The company says the solids being blended in these units can vary in bulk density and in percentage of the total mixture. Materials being blended are constantly being split and intermixed as the shell rotates. Normal cycle times are typically in the range of 15 minutes; however cycle times can be less, depending on the difficulty of blending.

All Ross V-Blenders are supplied with Intensifier bars to permit de-lumping and de-agglomeration as needed. Discharge is accomplished through a manually operated Butterfly valve. The valve is positioned 24 in. from the floor when in the bottom position.

The versatile line of dry blenders is available from stock in 5-, 10-, and 15-cu-ft sizes.  All blenders include the following standard features:

·          Intensifier bars for de-lumping

·          Type 316 stainless-steel parts

·          150 grit exterior finish, mirror finish on internal surfaces

·          Manually operated butterfly discharge valves

·          Safety railings and stainless steel support stands

·          Fully integrated motors and controls

 

The V-Blenders can also be customized to include special discharge valves and other customized requirements.
