Working Principle of Ribbon Blender

Ribbon blenders are also known as U trough mixers and they demonstrate a simple and yet effective mixing operation methodology. These blenders work on two major principles- convective mixing and diffusion. Convective mixing can be understood as macro movement of large sized solids. The other type of mixing, diffusion mixing takes place when individual particles in front of the ribbon move in a particular direction and the nearby particles do not move at all or lag behind.

The horizontal mixing vessel of the rubber blender is fed with the material from top by using the feeding devices provided and mounted near the cover. Since the horizontal ribbon blender causes material movements in different directions, you can expect astonishingly perfect homogeneous mixing. There are one or more discharge valves provided for material discharge.
