ROSS’ Sanitary Ribbon Blenders allow operators to safely empty bags of powder through a bar grating while a contiguous vibrating tray assembly catches debris and off-spec ingredients.

ROSS’ Sanitary Ribbon Blenders with ergonomic material handling accessories feature a new design that allows operators to safely empty bags of powder through a bar grating while a contiguous vibrating tray assembly catches debris and off-spec ingredients. Now available on all Ribbon Blenders, including the Model 42N-18SS (pictured), the new design uses safety limit switches to prevent operation of the agitator if access ports are open or if the grating is removed.

Additionally, the blenders come equipped with a sanitary 4-inch spherical disc discharge valve with a pneumatic actuator and UL-listed operator controls in a NEMA 4X stainless steel enclosure with 3R fan shrouds, variable frequency drive, digital speed and amperage readouts, dial-type potentiometer, cycle timer, and E-Stop. All interior and exterior surfaces of the blenders are stainless steel, polished to 150-grit sanitary finish.
