Washdown duty ribbon blenders from Ross, Charles & Son can be used to mix dry blends such as grains, powders, pellets, and flakes. Small amounts of liquid may be sprayed throughout the batch during the blending cycle for uniform distribution. Wet applications such as pastes, slurries, and suspensions can also be prepared in these blenders. The blenders feature a horizontal agitator with characteristic inner and outer helical ribbons pitched to move the materials in a well-balanced axial and radial flow pattern. The blenders are 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.
