Ribbon Blender Machine commonly known as horizontal ribbon mixer machine perform mixing through ribbon blades. The name of equipment ribbon blender derived from its ribbon shaped blades uses for mixing process. Machine having U shaped bowls in which ribbon shaped blades welded onto one pipe shaft. This pipe shaft rotated through external motor and gearbox. Suitable size bearing and pedestal block provided for smooth rotation of shaft. Mixing time in the blender ranging from few minute to hour depending material type and characteristics. Ribbon blender can be fabricated in mild steel, stainless steel 304, stainless steel 316, titanium and other metals as per individual process requirements. Ribbon mixers are available in different capacities ranging from just one liters to several cubic meters.

Working Principle Ribbon Mixer Machine
Ribbon blender demonstrate true performance equipment when talk about chemical processing. At the same time machine is simple to use than even non skilled worker can operate it very easily. Blender work on two major principles – convective mixing and diffusion. Convective mixing can be understood as macro movement of large sized solids. The other type of mixing, diffusion mixing takes place when individual particles in front of the ribbon move in a particular direction and the nearby particles do not move at all or lag behind.
Material is fed from the top cover of the machine. Manual loading can be perform or we can offer optionally auto feeder for loading materials inside the bowl. As material process in both directions, there is homogeneous mixing performs in each time. After mixing process material get discharges from slide gate valve provided at bottom shell of the equipment.
The horizontal mixing vessel of the rubber blender is fed with the material from top by using the feeding devices provided and mounted near the cover. Since the horizontal ribbon blender causes material movements in different directions, you can expect astonishingly perfect homogeneous mixing. There are one or more discharge valves provided for material discharge.
