What is a double ribbon mixer ?
This is a double ribbon mixer for mixing all types of dry powder. It is made up of a U-shaped horizontal mixing tank and two sets of mixing ribbons: the outer ribbon moves the powder from the ends to the center, and the inner ribbon moves the powder from the center to the ends. The effect of this counter-current action is homogenous mixing.
Double Ribbon Mixer Machine Details
Mixing Wheat Flour with Sesame
In a food manufacturer, it can blend any form of powder, including wheat flour and sesame. This method of product mixing is the simplest and most successful. It takes around 4 minutes to completely combine the wheat flour and sesame seeds.
It is simple to combine materials by agitating them with a spiral-shaped metal blade. The final product is well-balanced and satisfying. It’s ideal for efficiently combining powders.
Mixing with Paste
It can blend any type of powder with a minimal amount of liquid. This method of combining goods is the quickest and most efficient. It takes around 5 minutes to properly combine the paste.
By agitating with a spiral-shaped metal blade, you can easily combine materials. The outer helical of the ribbon pushes the ingredients in one direction, while the inner helical moves them in the opposite direction.
Mixing flour with Blue Pigment
It is one of the most effective and commonly used powder blenders in a wide range of industries, including medicines, agricultural chemicals, and so on. It is extremely useful for blending powders. It is capable of successfully blending flour powder and colored powder. It combines products effectively by whirling a spiral metal blade.
It takes 5 minutes to thoroughly blend the flour and colored powder.
Double Ribbon Mixer Types
1. How Long Do The Ingredients Mix ?
It takes 5–10 minutes to be effective in mixing, even less within 3 minutes. Dry and solid ingredients are a simple process that can easily be blended by the double ribbon mixer and can handle the bulk density of ingredients and give the right size of result.
2. What Are The Qualities of The Double Ribbon Mixer?
Here are the qualities of the double ribbon mixer:
-Discharge sealing has no dead angles when discharging.
-Full welding is so important for food and pharmaceutical machines. Powder is easy to hide in gaps, which may pollute fresh powder if residual powder goes bad. But full-welding and polishing can ensure no gap between hardware connections, which can show machine quality and usage experience.
-Easy to clean when cleaning the double ribbon mixer. It is safe to clean, less hassle and less time-consuming.
-Charging or feeding powder material to the double ribbon mixer can ensure convenience and satisfaction.
-Easy to operate and guarantees safe operation
3. How Long Does It Take To Ship?
It takes 7–10 days to produce a standard model. If you want to customize your double ribbon mixer, your machine can be done in 30–45 days. Shipped by air, it takes 7–10 days. Shipping by sea takes 10–60 days. It depends on your location.
4.Why is it Effective for Mixing Powder and Granular?
It has a ribbon agitator and a U-shaped chamber for highly balanced mixing of materials. The ribbon agitator is made up of inner and outer helical agitators. The inner ribbon moves the material from the center to the outside, while the outer ribbon moves the material from two sides to the center, and it is combined with the rotating direction when moving the materials. A double ribbon mixer gives a short time for mixing while providing a better mixing effect.
5.What is The Principle of the Double Ribbon Mixer?
It has an agitator and a U-shaped chamber for highly- balanced mixing of materials. The ribbon agitator is made up of inner and outer helical agitator. This double ribbon mixer is made up of transmission parts, twin ribbon agitators, and a U-shaped chamber. A double ribbon mixer agitator is made up of an inner and outer helical agitator. The outer ribbon moves materials one way, while the inner ribbon moves materials the other way. The ribbons rotate approximately to move the materials both radially and laterally to ensure the blends in short cycle times. All connection parts of the ribbon blender are fully welded. No dead angle when mixture is generated by all 304 stainless steel double ribbon mixer materials and it is easy to clean and easy to use.
6.Why is it Called a Double Ribbon Mixer?
It is called a “double ribbon mixer” because this double ribbon mixer is made up of transmission parts, twin ribbon agitators, and a U-shaped chamber. A double ribbon mixer agitator is made up of an inner and outer helical agitator. The outer ribbon moves materials one way, while the inner ribbon moves materials the other way. The ribbons rotate approximately to move the materials both radially and laterally to ensure the blends in short cycle times. All connection parts of the double ribbon mixers are fully welded. There is no dead angle when the mixture is generated by all the 304 stainless steel double ribbon mixer materials, and it is easy to clean and easy to use.
7. What Materials Are Used ?
Double ribbon mixer materials are made of:
- Stainless steel 304 materials can also be made of 316 and 316 L stainless steel. It depends on the customer’s requirements.
- Inside the tank of the double ribbon mixer is a complete mirror polished as well as the ribbon and shaft.
- All parts of the double ribbon mixer are fully welded.
- You can guarantee that the double ribbon mixer has obtained a good quality standard.
8. Why is it Effective for Many Industries?
It is commonly used for dry solid blending and liquid materials and is used in the following applications:
Pharmaceutical industry: mixing prior to powders and granules.
chemical industry: metallic powder mixtures, pesticides, herbicides, and many more.
The food processing industry: cereals, coffee mixes, dairy powders, milk powder, and many more.
Construction industry: steel preblends and etc.
Plastics industry : mixing of masterbatches, mixing of pellets, plastic powders, and many more.
Polymers and other industries.
Many industries are now using double ribbon mixer.
9. How Many Liters of Capacity Are Available In The Market?
The double ribbon mixer has different capacities in liters, such as 100L, 200L, 300L, 500L, 1000L, 1500L, 2000L, 3000L, 5000L, and 10000L. Above 10,000 liters, it can be customized. A double ribbon mixer manufactures high-quality outcomes.
10. What are The Main Differences Between a Double Ribbon Mixer and Other Mixer Machines?
The double ribbon mixer is effective for mixing powders, powder with liquid, and powder with granules, and even the smallest quantity of ingredient can be blended efficiently in large volumes.
Other blender machines:
The V-blender is a versatile and effective mixing machine for homogeneously combining dry materials. The V blender is suitable for powder, granule-type materials, etc. The amount of material put into the v blender has an impact on its efficiency. The v mixer recommended fill-up volume is 40% to 60% of the overall mixing volume. For this, the materials inside the machine can move freely and result in a good mixture.
Paddle mixer is applicable for mixing powder and powder, granular and powder, granule and granule, or adding a small amount of liquid. If the mix consists of materials with very different densities, it is easy to break, and will melt or get sticky when the temperature is higher.
11. Why Is The Mixing Time Too Fast Compared to Other Machines?
The mixing time is too fast compared to others because the double ribbon mixer has an additional function of speed adjustment, which can be customized by installing a frequency converter, and it can be adjusted to a higher speed.
