1. Why Is Ribbon Mixer Effective for Mixing Powder and Granular?

The ribbon mixer is effective for mixing powder, granular and with liquid because 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 rotating direction when moving the materials. The ribbon mixer machine gives a short time on mixing while providing a better mixing effect.

2. How Many Minutes is the Mixing Time?

It 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 mixer. It can handle the bulk density of ingredients and give the right sized result.

3.Why is Ribbon Mixer Effective for Many Industries?

It is effective for many industries, like food and pharmaceuticals, as well as construction lines, agriculture, chemicals, etc. The ribbon mixer machine is a solution to blend powders, powder with liquid, powder with granules, and even the smallest quantity of components. The Ribbon mixer has a unique design with a horizontal U-shaped casing and a rotating agitator. The agitator is made up of two helical ribbons that allow convective motion to flow in two directions, resulting in powder and bulk solids mixing.

4. How Long Does it Take to Ship the Machine?

It takes 7–10 days to produce a standard model. For a customized ribbon mixing machine, your machine can be done in 30–45 days. However, shipping by air takes 7–10 days. Shipped by sea, it takes 10–60 days to arrive. It depends on your location.

5. Why is the Mixing Time Too Fast Compared to Others?

It is extremely fast in comparison to other ribbon mixers since the Top’s Group ribbon mixing machine features a customizable speed control function. It can be updated to a higher speed by using a frequency converter.

6. How to Select the Best Ribbon Mixer?

-First is to confirm what product will be used to mix in a ribbon mixer. 

-Second is to choose a suitable model. You need to calculate the suitable volume according to your product density and batch weight.

-The quality of the ribbon mixer is the most important thing of all. Here are the qualities: 

-Discharge sealing has no dead angles when discharging.

-Powder is easy to hide in gaps, which might contaminate fresh powder if residual powder goes bad. This is why full-welding is so important for food and pharmaceutical facilities. Full-welding and polishing, on the other hand, can ensure that no gaps exist between hardware connections, demonstrating machine quality and user experience.

-Easy to clean when cleaning. It is safe to clean, less hassle and less time-consuming.

-Charging or feeding powder material to the ribbon mixer can ensure convenience and satisfaction.

– Easy to operate and guarantee safe operation.

7. How Do You Determine the Capacity of a Ribbon Mixer Machine?

The ribbon mixer machine has an inner and outer helical agitator with which it can blend materials. The outside ribbon moves materials one way, while the inner ribbon moves materials the other way. The ribbons rotate to transfer the materials both radially and laterally, ensuring quick cycle times.

8. How Many Liters of Capacity are Available in a Ribbon Mixing Machine?

The ribbon mixing machine has a capacity of 100L, 200L, 300L, 500L, 1000L, 1500L, 2000L, 3000L, 5000L, and 10,000L. We customized more than 10,000 L.

10.Why is it Called a Ribbon Mixer?

Because of the ribbon agitator that is a part of its design, it is called a “ribbon mixer.” A U-shaped horizontal design makes up the remainder of the ribbon mixer’s structure. The ribbon agitator in the mixer is made up of inner and outer helical blades. A ribbon mixer effectively mixes materials by agitating ingredients with a spiral metal blade. The ribbon’s outer helix pushes the product in one direction, and the inner helix carries the material in the opposite direction.

11. What is a Ribbon Mixing Machine Used For?

A ribbon mixing machine is commonly used to homogeneously mix powders, granules, and liquids. The material is tumbled and moved radially around the inside of the ribbon mixing machine as the agitator turns. The ribbon mixing machine is a U-shaped machine that mixes free-flowing raw materials. Materials are moved in a well-balanced axial and radial flow pattern by a horizontal agitator made up of properly pitched inner and outer helical ribbons. The Ribbon mixing machine is one of the most versatile, cost-effective, and commonly used dry solids mixers in a variety of industrial applications, such as chemicals, food, pharmaceuticals, agricultural inputs, and polymeric materials. A ribbon mixing machine can combine powders, grains, and liquids.
