Ribbon Powder Mixer Manufacturer
Shanghai Tops Group developed ribbon powder mixers for all industries that required mixing, including food, pharma, agricultural, and others. It is used to combine different types of powder, such as powder with liquid spray and powder with granules. The motor-driven double helix ribbon mixer achieves high-effective convective mixing in a shorter amount of time.
Ribbon Powder Mixer Detailed Parts
This is a ribbon powder mixer that can be used to mix all types of powder. It consists of a horizontal U-shaped mixing tank and two sets of mixing ribbons: the outer ribbon pushes the powder from the ends to the center, while the inner ribbon pushes the powder from the center to the ends. This countercurrent movement results in homogeneous mixing.
The tank’s lid can be lifted to allow for easy cleaning and replacement of parts.
Excellent Discharge Area
The discharge valve of the ribbon powder mixer can be operated manually or pneumatically. Optional valves include cylinder valves, butterfly valves, and so on. Pneumatic sealing is typically superior to manual sealing.
There is also no dead angle in the mixing tank or valve room. However, for certain clients, using a manual valve to control the discharge volume is more convenient. It is also appropriate for materials with bags flowing.
Optional Added Function
A ribbon powder mixer can require additional functions due to customer requirements, such as:
A heating and cooling jacket system.
A weighing device for a load cell for weight measurement.
A dust removal system
A spray system is for a small amount of liquid that can be mixed with powdered materials.
1.Why is it Called a Ribbon Powder Mixer?
It is called a “ribbon powder mixer” because it 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 of the ribbon powder mixers 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.
2. What Materials Are Used ?
Ribbon powder mixer 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 mixer is a complete mirror polished as well as the ribbon and shaft.
- All parts of the ribbon powder mixer are fully welded.
- You can guarantee that the ribbon powder mixer has obtained a good quality standard.
3. 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 mixer.
4. How Many Liters of Capacity Are Available In The Market?
The ribbon powder mixer 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 mixer manufactures high-quality outcomes.
5. What are The Main Differences Between a Ribbon Powder Mixer and Other Mixer Machines?
The ribbon powder mixer 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.
6. Why Is The Mixing Time Too Fast Compared to Other Machines?
The mixing time is too fast compared to others because the ribbon powder mixer 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.
7. 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 mixer and can handle the bulk density of ingredients and give the right size of result.
8. What Are The Qualities of The Ribbon Powder Mixer?
Here are the qualities of the ribbon powder mixer:
-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 mixer. It is safe to clean, less hassle and less time-consuming.
-Charging or feeding powder material to the ribbon powder mixer can ensure convenience and satisfaction.
-Easy to operate and guarantees safe operation
9. 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 mixer, 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.
10.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 mixer gives a short time for mixing while providing a better mixing effect.
