July 7, 2016
Charles Ross & Son offers washdown-duty ribbon blenders in many standard sizes.

Washdown-duty Ribbon Blenders come in many standard sizes from ½ to 1000 cu.ft. Pictured is a 1-cu.ft. stainless steel model equipped with all washdown components including the motor, safety limit switch, variable frequency drive, stuffing boxes and knife gate discharge valve. The dust-tight cover includes a charging port with safety grating, and the U-shaped trough is surrounded by a 100-psi ASME-stamped jacket for heating/cooling. They're suitable for mixing powders, grains, pellets, flakes and other dry blends. Small amounts of liquid may be sprayed throughout the batch during the blending cycle ensuring uniform distribution. Wet applications such as pastes, slurries and suspensions can also be prepared in these blenders. The highly versatile blending mechanism is delivered by a horizontal agitator with characteristic inner and outer helical ribbons precisely pitched to move materials in a well-balanced axial and radial flow pattern.
