LMRBMX Food-Grade Industrial Ribbon Blenders/Mixers
The LMRBMX Food-Grade Industrial Ribbon Blenders/Mixers are a basic industrial mixing machine widely used in food, pharmaceutical, chemical, and many other industries. They basically consist of a trough-shaped shell, usually 2 to 3 times longer than its width, with a semicircular bottom and fitted with a horizontal longitudinal shaft. The shaft has mounted arms supporting a combination of ribbon blades, paddles, or helical screws set at a fairly close clearance to the semicircular mixer body, so that, no layer of material remains on the bottom of the ribbon mixer. The most effective design of ribbon layout is the double spiral type of ribbon blenders, in which, the outer ribbon moves the product in one direction and the inner ribbon moves it in the opposite direction which maximizes the mixing efficiency.
The ribbons rotate and move materials both radially and laterally to insure thorough blends in short cycle times. Ribbon agitators are generally loaded for blends between 40% to 70% of the rated capacity to ensure effective and efficient mixing action.
