If you need it to be blended, then a ribbon mixer is probably the piece of equipment you want. Because of its versatility, it’s remained as the industry standard for blending and mixing in a number of different industries.
Two Styles of Ribbon Mixers
The first, and most common, style of ribbon mixer is the one that provides a discharge at the center bottom. Usually when you encounter a ribbon mixer, this is the style that you will see.
The other style provides a discharge at the end. This is used when the person doing the mixing wants the end product to come out of the end of the mixer instead of out of the center.
Which style you choose to use will be based specifically upon what you are mixing and which style will be more efficient for you.
While some industries might be looking towards the future and trying to find new ways to mix their products, it’s safe to say that the versatility of the ribbon mixer will keep it around for years to come.
