Blending

With our on site state of the art blending facilities we are able to offer a range of blending techniques most appropriate to the product specification.

Ribbon Blenders

Ribbon blenders are preferred by a number of manufacturers for their individual action. They are used extensively in the food industry specifically for dry powder blending.

Ribbon Blenders consist of a U-shaped horizontal trough and a specially fabricated ribbon agitator. A ribbon agitator consists of a set of inner and outer helical blades. The outer ribbon moves materials toward the centre of the trough, and the inner ribbon moves the materials toward the outside of the trough. The ribbon also rotates at approx. 300 fpm, thus moving materials both radically and laterally to insure thorough blends in short cycle times. Ribbon agitators are used for blends that will be between 40 and 100% of the rated capacity of the blender.
