What is a ribbon blender?
For blending different powders, powder with liquid, powder with granules, and dry solids, the ribbon blender is one of the most accurate, cost-effective, and widely used blenders. The rotating agitator and horizontal U-shaped design describe the machine. The agitator is made up of two helical ribbons that allow convective motion to flow in both directions, allowing powder and bulk particles to be blended.
Ribbon Blender Machine Types
Ribbon blender, blending wheat flour with sesame
It can mix any type of powder, including wheat flour and sesame, in a food manufacturing facility. Mixing products in this method is the simplest and most effective process. It takes about 4 minutes to fully blend the wheat flour and sesame.
The blend provides a well-balanced and pleasing end result. It’s perfect for blending powders effectively.
Ribbon blender, blending paste
Any kind of powder can be blended with a small amount of liquid using a ribbon blending machine. This procedure of blending products is the fastest and most productive. The paste takes approximately 5 minutes to thoroughly blend.
It’s easy to blend ingredients by agitating with a spiral-shaped metal blade. The ribbon’s outer helical pushes the ingredients in one direction, while the inner helical moves the ingredients in the opposite direction.
Ribbon blender, blending flour with blue pigment
In a wide range of industries, including medicines, agricultural chemicals, etc., it is one of the most effective and widely used blenders for powders. When it comes to blending powders, a ribbon blender helps a lot. It has the ability to blend flour powder and colored powder effectively.
It takes 5 minutes to accurately and properly combine the flour and colored powder.
The Ribbon Blender is mostly used in the following industries:
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 ribbon blending machine and can handle the bulk density of ingredients and give the right size of result.
2. What Are The Qualities of The Double Ribbon Blender?
Here are the qualities of the ribbon blender machine:
-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 ribbon blender machine. It is safe to clean, less hassle and less time-consuming.
-Charging or feeding powder material to the ribbon blender 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 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.
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 ribbon blender machine gives a short time for mixing while providing a better mixing effect.
5.What is The Principle of the Ribbon Blender?
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 stainless steel ribbon blending machine is made up of transmission parts, twin ribbon agitators, and a U-shaped chamber. A double 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 ribbon blender are fully welded. No dead angle when mixture is generated by all 304 stainless steel ribbon blender machine materials and it is easy to clean and easy to use.
6.Why is it Called a Ribbon Blender?
It is called a “ribbon blender” because this stainless steel ribbon blender is made up of transmission parts, twin ribbon agitators, and a U-shaped chamber. A ribbon blending machine 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 blender are fully welded. There is no dead angle when the mixture is generated by all the 304 stainless steel ribbon blending machine materials, and it is easy to clean and easy to use.
7. What Materials Are Used for The Ribbon Blender Machine?
Ribbon blending machine 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 ribbon blender is a complete mirror polished as well as the ribbon and shaft.
- All parts of the ribbon blending machine are fully welded.
- You can guarantee that the ribbon blender machine 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 ribbon blenders.
9. How Many Liters of Capacity Are Available In The Market?
The double ribbon blender 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 ribbon blender manufactures high-quality outcomes. Ribbon blenders are for sale all over the world.
10. What are The Main Differences Between a Ribbon Blender and Other Mixer Machines?
The ribbon blender machine 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 ribbon blender machine 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.
