New Munson Ribbon Blender meets sanitary standards
The new Munson Ribbon Blender meets sanitary standards and blends up to 1.84 m3 of powders, pastes or slurries.
Munson has released a new Ribbon Blender that meets sanitary standards and blends up to 1.84 m3 of powders, pastes or slurries. The unit, model HD-3.5-7-S316, is constructed of #316 stainless steel with continuous welds having 6-mm radii polished to 150 grit, a #4 (-32 Ra) interior surface finish and external removable seals. The blender’s 2:1 length-to-diameter ratio helps distribute ingredients uniformly during loading, blending and discharge. It forces a split double-helical agitator through stationary material, typically producing homogeneous blends in five to six minutes. Tight tolerances of 1.6 to 0.8 mm between ribbon blades and the vessel wall help to minimize residual product in the trough following discharge, reducing material waste and cleaning time. Other options include a dust hood inlet with removable grating for ease of loading, spray lines for liquid additions, multiple discharges, special drive arrangements and CIP manifolds. www.munsonmachinery.com
