How Ribbon Blender Works
The horizontal ribbon blender works with an inner ribbon that carries the material from the center to the outside and an outer ribbon that moves the material from two sides to the center. When moving the materials, the two ribbons are joined in a rotating direction. The horizontal ribbon blender allows you to mix in less time while getting a better result.
Ribbon Blending Machine Application Industry
Ribbon Blender with Weight Checker
The blender can be installed with load cell on the foots , then the load cell can check weight. When you feed products into the blender, the total feeding weight will show on the screen. The weight accuracy can be customized as your mixing requirements.
If your mixing products require ratio and you has no good way to dose the products, this blender with load cell can solve your problem perfectly.
Ribbon Blender with Spraying System
Customers can also request that the horizontal ribbon blender be supplied with extra features such as a spraying system that includes a pump, a nozzle, and a hopper. It can be customized according to your desired specifications. A small amount of liquid can be mixed into a powder material.
At the end of the mixing procedure, it can have a paste-like material.
Ribbon Blending Machine Projects
1. What Materials Are Used for The Horizontal Ribbon Blender?
Horizontal ribbon blender 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 horizontal ribbon blender is a complete mirror polished as well as the ribbon and shaft.
- All parts of the horizontal ribbon blender are fully welded.
- You can guarantee that the horizontal ribbon blender has obtained a good quality standard.
2. Why Does It Have the Capacity to Mix Materials?
The horizontal ribbon blender has the capacity to mix materials because it has a ribbon agitator 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.
3. 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 horizontal ribbon blender and can handle the bulk density of ingredients and give the right size of result.
4. How Many Liters of Capacity Are Available in a Machine?
The horizontal ribbon blender has different capacities in liters, such as 100L, 200L, 300L, 500L, 1000L, 1500L, 2000L, 3000L, 5000L, and 10000L. Above 10,000 liters, we customize.
5. Why Is The Mixing Time Too Fast Compared to Other Machines?
The mixing time is too fast compared to others because our horizontal ribbon blender 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.
6. What Are The Qualities of The Horizontal Ribbon Blender?
Here are the qualities of the horizontal ribbon blender:
-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 horizontal ribbon blender. It is safe to clean, less hassle and less time-consuming.
-Charging or feeding powder material to the horizontal ribbon blender can ensure convenience and satisfaction.
-Easy to operate and guarantees safe operation
7. How Long Does It Take to Ship The Machine From China?
It takes 7–10 days to produce a standard model. If you want to customize your horizontal ribbon blender, 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.
8. What Certificates Does The Horizontal Ribbon Blender Usually Need?
Different countries and areas need different types of certificates for blenders. Usually CE certificate is mostly popular needed for a horizontal ribbon blender. And CSA certificate is usually needed for Canada market, UL certificate is usually needed for America market.
9. Does Horizontal Ribbon Blender Need After Sale Service?
The horizontal ribbon blender has simple structure , the critical technology points are shaft sealing and discharge sealing , if these are well designed by manufacturer, the blender almost doesn’t need after sale service.
10.Why is it Called a Horizontal Ribbon Blender?
It is called a “horizontal ribbon blender” because this stainless steel ribbon blender mixer is made up of transmission parts, twin ribbon agitators, and a U-shaped chamber. A horizontal ribbon blender 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 horizontal ribbon blender are fully welded. There is no dead angle when the mixture is generated by all the 304 stainless steel horizontal ribbon blender materials, and it is easy to clean and easy to use.
11.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 horizontal ribbon blenders.
12.What are The Main Differences Between a Horizontal Ribbon Blender and Other Mixer Machines?
The horizontal ribbon blender 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 mixer machines:
The V-mixer is a versatile and effective mixing machine for homogeneously combining dry materials. The V Mixer is suitable for powder, granule-type materials, etc. The amount of material put into the v mixer 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.
13.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 horizontal ribbon blender gives a short time for mixing while providing a better mixing effect.
