Ribbon Blender Model 42N-270 Increases Performance

The Ribbon Blender Model 42N-270 has a maximum working capacity of 270 cu.ft. and a full holding capacity of 300 cu.ft. The stainless steel wetted parts are polished to 150-grit finish for cleanability. The gasketed three-piece cover, safety grating, and pneumatically-operated 10” knife gate valve are all designed to facilitate ingredient charging and dust-tight operation. The double ribbon agitator is fabricated to produce a well-balanced axial and radial flow of powders while holding tightly-controlled clearances between the trough. The solid agitator shaft is driven to 20 rpm by a 100 HP TEFC motor.  All Ross Ribbon Blenders are equipped with a direct drive gear motor for improved performance and lower maintenance. With Ross-supplied controls, users receive a production-ready blender and benefit from electronic speed control, soft-start capabilities, and overload protection without any wiring hassles.
