Shanghai Top’s group developed a ribbon feed mixer, which is used to combine feeding ingredients. It is ideally suited for usage in industries such as animal feed and more. You may combine in less time with the ribbon feed mixer while still delivering a satisfactory outcome.
Ribbon Feed Mixer Machine Types
Ribbon Feed Mixer Function
A ribbon agitator and a U-shaped chamber in the ribbon feed mixer enable fully balanced feeding ingredient mixing. The inner ribbon moves the material from the center to the outside. The outer ribbon moves the material from two sides to the center.
It is paired with the rotational direction for moving the materials. It allows you to mix in less time while giving excellent results.
Ribbon Feed Mixer with Spraying System
A spraying system, for one, can be added to the ribbon feed mixer. This device can convert liquid into powder. A hopper, nozzle, and pump compose the spraying system.
It is capable of mixing powdered materials with a suitable amount of liquid. The Tops group can be customized to your specific needs.
Ribbon Feed Mixer with Weighing System
The weighing system’s objective is to determine the weight of the materials inside the machine. When a material is loaded into the ribbon feed mixer, the total feeding weight is displayed on the screen. It is less difficult to check the weight and is easily tracked.
The weighing system can be customized to the needs of the customer.
Ribbon Feed Mixer with Jacket System
Customers can request features such as a heating and cooling jacket system for the ribbon feed mixer. A dual jacket for cooling and heating is offered. It is made up of both cool and hot materials.
It is typically cooled by water and heated by steam or electricity. The Tops group can customize as well based on your needs.
Ribbon Feed Mixer Process Videos
The ribbon feed mixer is a horizontal U-shaped design that can mix even the smallest ingredient amounts into large volumes and is excellent for mixing powders, powder with liquid, and powder with granules. A ribbon feed mixer can serve animal feed, construction, agricultural chemicals, food, plastics, pharmaceuticals, and other industries. It delivers a comprehensive and consistent mixing effect for a more effective process result.

1. What is The Construction of The Machine?
A ribbon feed mixer is constructed of a U-shaped horizontal tank with a rotating twin spiral ribbon stirrer. The agitator’s shaft is centered in the tank with spiral ribbons that are welded.
2. What are The Advantages of the Ribbon Feed Mixer?
- It is a multifunctional mixing machine with a steady operation, consistent quality, low noise, long life, simple installation and maintenance.
- Discharge sealing has no dead angles when discharging.
- Fully 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 polish can make no gap between hardware connections, which can show machine quality and usage experience.
- It has a safety switch, grid and wheels for safety use.
- Easy to clean when cleaning the ribbon feed mixer. It is safe to clean, less hassle and less time consuming.
- It gives you less time during mixing. The ribbon feed mixer can be set from 1 to 15 minutes.
- Charging or feeding powder material to the ribbon feed mixer can ensure convenience and satisfaction.
- Easy to operate and guarantee safe operation.
3. What is The Principle of the Machine ?
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 feed mixer is made up of transmission parts, twin ribbon agitators, and a U-shaped chamber. A ribbon feed 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 feed mixer are fully welded. No dead angle when mixture is generated by all 304 stainless steel ribbon feed mixer materials and it is easy to clean and easy to use.
4. What is the Used For?
Ribbon feed mixer is a form of horizontal U-shaped design and it is used for mixing powders, powder with liquid and powder with granules and even the smallest quantity of ingredient can be blended efficiently with large volumes. Ribbon feed mixers are also useful for construction lines, agricultural chemicals, food, polymers, pharmaceuticals, etc. Ribbon feed mixer offers versatile and highly scalable mixing for efficient process and result.
5. What Is the Application of the Mixer?
A ribbon feed mixer is essential in the processing of a wide range of products. It can customize mixing solutions for construction, agricultural chemicals, food, polymers, pharmaceuticals, and other industries by mixing powders with liquids and granules. Ingredients are properly mixed using a ribbon feed mixer.
6. What Is the Difference Between Different Types of Mixers?
Difference between different types of mixer:
Ribbon feed mixer has a unique design of horizontal U-shaped casing with a rotating agitator. The agitator is made up of two helical ribbons that let convective motion flow in two directions, resulting in powder and bulk solids mixing.
Other mixer machines:
Paddle mixer is also called a single shaft paddle mixer or double shaft paddle mixer. Double shaft paddle mixer has two shafts with counter-rotating blades while single shaft paddle mixer has a different angle of blades to mix up the product inside the machine, causing cross mixing.
V mixer consists of a work-chamber connected by two cylinders forming a “V ” shape. It can be mixed evenly and used widely for dry powder and granular materials. It can produce a solid-solid mixture.
7. What Is the Most Popular Mixer Type?
The most popular type of mixers is the ribbon feed mixer because this machine is very useful for industries such as food industry, chemical industry, agricultural industry and many more. It helps to lessen the time of mixing and brings you higher efficiency in mixing materials.
8. What Is The Mixing Speed ?
Ribbon feed mixer takes 5–10 minutes to be effective in mixing. For smaller models such as 100L, 200L, and 300L, the mixing time is within 3 minutes. Larger models, such as 3000L, 5000L, and 10,000, require more time to mix materials. Dry and solid ingredients are a simple process that can be easily blended by the ribbon feed mixer. It can handle the bulk density of ingredients and give the right sized result.
9. What Is the Difference Between a Home Mixer and an Industrial Mixer?
Home mixer is sometimes known as a stand mixer, is a kitchen appliance that rotates a set of “beaters” in a bowl containing the food or liquids to be mixed using a gear-driven mechanism. While industrial mixer are the mixer that is used by industries such as food industry, chemical industry, agricultural industry and etc.
10. How to Clean the Spots on a Machine Surface?
It is important to clean the spots on a machine to prevent rust on the machine and cross-contamination.
The cleaning procedure includes removing any remaining product and material build-up from the mixing tank as a whole. To do this, the mixing shaft will be cleansed with water.
Following that, the ribbon feed mixer is cleaned from top to bottom. Cleaning nozzles are either permanently welded to the interior of the socket or can be positioned on the device as a separate washing adapter for this operation.
The rinsing water used to clean the outlets is collected in the mixing container and then used to clean the interior of the mixer, which requires a cleaning agent.
The mixing shaft is used to clean the mixing tank. It rotates back and forth, ensuring intense and turbulent contact between the mixer’s inner surface and the cleaning agent. Any product residue left in the mixer can be absorbed if necessary during this step.
It is important to finish drying the mixer with conditioned ambient air. Blowing out the entire system with heated compressed air or using blowers in combination with absorption dryers has been shown to be effective.
11. How to Confirm If the Machine Material is SS304 or SS316?
304 stainless steel is a multipurpose stainless steel that has a higher rust resistance than stainless steels in the 200 series. It is also better to have a high temperature resistance. The corrosion resistance of 304 stainless steel is outstanding, as is the resistance to intergranular corrosion. While 316 stainless steel the corrosion resistance and high temperature strength of 316 stainless steel have greatly improved. It has a high temperature resistance of 1200-1300 degrees and can be used in harsh environments.
