ribbon blender mixer

An industrial-strength machine, a ribbon blender is used to mix large amounts of material in many different industries. The blender gets its name from the thin, ribbon-shaped metal mixers that perform the blending.

Ribbon Blender Features

Most ribbon blenders consist of an engine to power operation, a large trough to hold the material and a ribboned agitator that does the mixing.

Identification
A ribbon blender’s agitator typically has metal ribbons, often in a double helical design, surrounding a central bar that extends the length of the trough. The ribbons are angled and balanced in such a way to continually move material within the container.
