Ribbon Powder Blender
Shanghai Tops Group created a ribbon powder blender for any industry that required blending, such as food, pharmaceuticals, agricultural, and many more. It is used to combine various types of powder, including powder with liquid spray and powder with granules. The motor-driven double helix ribbon mixer provides efficient convective mixing in less time.
What’s the Function?
This is a ribbon powder mixer that can mix all kinds of powder. It is made up of a horizontal U-shaped mixing tank and two sets of mixing ribbons: the outer ribbon pushes powder from the ends to the center, while the inner ribbon pushes powder from the center to the ends. The result of this countercurrent movement is homogeneous mixing.
The tank’s lid can be lifted to facilitate cleaning and part replacement.
The Discharge Area
The ribbon powder blender’s discharge valve can be operated manually or pneumatically. Cylinder valves, butterfly valves, and other options are available. In most cases, pneumatic sealing outperforms manual sealing.
In addition, there is no dead angle in the mixing tank or valve room. For some clients, however, using a manual valve to control the discharge volume is more convenient. It is also suitable for materials with flowing bags.
Optional Extra Function
Due to customer requirements, a ribbon powder blender may require additional functions such as:
A jacket with heating and cooling capabilities.
A weighing device for a load cell that measures weight.
A dust extraction system
A spray system is used to apply a small amount of liquid to powdered materials.
1.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 powder blender gives a short time for mixing while providing a better mixing effect.
2.What is The Principle of the Ribbon Powder 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 ribbon powder blender is made up of transmission parts, twin ribbon agitators, and a U-shaped chamber. A ribbon powder 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 are fully welded. No dead angle when mixture is generated by all 304 stainless steel ribbon powder blender materials, and it is easy to clean and easy to use.
3.Why is it Called a Ribbon Powder Blender?
It is called a “ribbon powder blender” because it is made up of transmission parts, twin ribbon agitators, and a U-shaped chamber. A ribbon powder 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 powder blenders are fully welded. There is no dead angle when the mixture is generated by all the 304 stainless steel materials, and it is easy to clean and easy to use.
4. What Materials Are Used?
Ribbon powder 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 ribbon powder blender is a complete mirror polished as well as the ribbon and shaft.
- All parts of the ribbon powder blender are fully welded.
- You can guarantee that the ribbon powder blender has obtained a good quality standard.
5. 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 powder blender.
6. How Many Liters of Capacity Are Available in The Market?
The ribbon powder 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 powder blender manufactures high-quality outcomes.
7. What are The Main Differences Between a Ribbon Powder Blender and Other Mixer Machines?
The ribbon powder 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 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.
8. Why Is the Mixing Time Too Fast Compared to Other Machines?
The mixing time is too fast compared to others because the ribbon powder 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.
9. 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 powder blender and can handle the bulk density of ingredients and give the right size of result.
10. What Are the Qualities of The Ribbon Powder Blender?
Here are the qualities of the ribbon powder 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 ribbon powder blender. It is safe to clean, less hassle and less time-consuming.
-Charging or feeding powder material to the ribbon powder blender can ensure convenience and satisfaction.
-Easy to operate and guarantees safe operation
11. How Long Does It Take to Ship?
It takes 7–10 days to produce a standard model. If you want to customize your ribbon powder 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.
