Ribbon blenders have a variety of uses in the manufacture of food, beverage, pharmaceutical, cosmetic, chemical, plastics, agricultural and other products.
Due to its versatility and economy, the Ribbon Blender is typically the most obvious choice for blending requirements.
It mainly consists of a mixing cylinder, a double layer spiral belt and driving parts.
The inner spiral belt makes the material move outwards, while the outer spiral belt makes the material move inwards, forming a good material circulation.
The circumferential movement of the spiral belt enables the ribbon blender to achieve fine mixing efficiency in a very short period of time.

What is a Horizontal Ribbon Mixer?
Figure 1 – GIF of a horizontal ribbon mixer during operation
From what it’s called alone, a horizontal ribbon mixer is a type of mixer or blender that is formed and shaped horizontally.
It’s considered the common and the standard shape and alignment of ribbon mixers. The way it works is that the vessel moves slightly back and forth, while the agitators inside it rotate and spin, generating force that would throw the particles and materials back and forth inside the mixing chamber.
Vertical Ribbon Mixer
A vertical ribbon mixer is the counterpart of the horizontal ribbon mixer. From what it’s called alone, what it is, would be simple and easy to determine.
Figure 2 – A vertical ribbon mixer
Vertical ribbon mixers are mixers that are standing up in form, instead of being laid out flat horizontally. Ideally, these vertical ribbon mixers are cheaper and more affordable than horizontal ribbon mixers.
However, when it comes to quality and speed, it’ll be best to go with a horizontal ribbon mixer. To give you some of the pros and benefits of using vertical ribbon mixers, they include:
- Good mixing performance
- They’re easier to discharge (because of its stature)
- You have many options of added components
- Thorough and well mixing process
TIP: You’ll easily be able to identify a vertical ribbon mixer from a horizontal ribbon mixer. From the alignment and the direction of how they are alone.
Apart from these blenders and mixers, though, what else is there? Do you know what a double cone blender is?
What is a Double Cone Blender?
Figure 3 – Double cone blender sample
It’s one of the types of blenders and mixers and is known as the “double cone” mixer because it’s comprised of two (2) cones that sit on top of one another.
You’ll be able to find a lot of double cone blenders in the market, and they’re efficient for the process of mixing granules and dry powders in a homogenous mixture.
Used Ribbon Mixer
There are underlying risks of purchasing or buying used ribbon mixers such as depleted performance, risks of the machine being worn out, as well as the motors being inaccurate.

|The shaft is the part or the component that holds the agitators or the ribbon blades in place. They’re the ones connected to the bearings.
|Without a motor, the machine wouldn’t come to life. It’s the part or the component that makes the machine function and operate.
|Lastly, the discharge port or the discharge valve is the component where the results or the outputs exit the machine.
You may find other horizontal ribbon mixers that have other parts and components. So, take note, that these aren’t the only components. They’re just the basic and the standard ones that you’ll see across the board.
Specifications of Horizontal Ribbon Mixers You Need to Take Note Of
Knowing the specifications of horizontal ribbon mixers is important because they’ll be the ones to determine whether or not a particular machine is within your expectations.
The specs and technical parameters that you should take note of include:
This is the specification or the parameter that refers to the overall or the total capacity of the machine that it’s capable of working on.
By knowing the working capacity, you’ll know the limitations of your project. The working capacity is usually expressed in kg (kilograms) or meters cubed (m3)
Speed or Rotation
The speed determines or refers to the overall time that the machine is capable of working or mixing per minute. It’s usually expressed in a measurement of r/min or rotations per minute.
Power refers to the requirement of the machine to operate. This particular specification is often expressed in kW or kilowatt hour.
Weight refers to the machine’s overall weight. It is important because this will determine how heavy and how difficult the machine is to be transported.
Otherwise known as the motor, the driven unit is the type of the motor that’s used in the industry. You’ll be able to find a lot of motors in the industry, some of the most common types of motors include K-series motors, F-series motors, R-series motors, energy-saving motors, and many more!
These are the top and most crucial specifications and technical parameters important and relevant in the industry.
What Are The Applications Of A Ribbon Blender Machine?
Ribbon blenders are among the highly adaptable, cost-effective, and widely used solids content blenders in a wide range of industries.
Examples of industries that use Ribbon Blender Machines include:
- Agricultural products
- Polymer blends
Most materials and light extracts can be mixed using ribbon blenders. The anterior and posterior ribbons work together to deliver efficient and cost-effective mixing.
Ribbon blenders are commonly used to mix dry grains and powders uniformly. A “U” tank and a shaft containing two sets of spiral ribbons, one inside another, make up the blender.
The proximal and distal ribbons are exactly aligned. The material contacts each corner of the trough during spinning and transmits radial and linear movement to the entire content to be blended.
What Are The Main Parts Of A Ribbon Blender Machine?
A ribbon blender, like all other tech equipment, is a multifunctional machine with multiple functional parts. These components work together to guarantee a productive working system and consistent mix output.
These parts include;
Parts of ribbon blender machine
The mixing and combining of the components take place in this compartment of the Ribbon blender.
A U-shaped cylinder is the most common shape for this chamber.
This compartment is where the mixing occurs. You can blend solid or granular ingredients according to the complexity of your operation.
According to the diameter of the troughs, a tight-fitting upper flat cover is provided to enclose the container while working.
The top cover is a completely open tray, allowing for easy maintenance and reloading of the materials.
Usually, the cover is composed of robust stainless steel that does not bend even when subjected to moderate stress.
The discharge section is properly equipped with effective valves that regulate the discharge promptly.
Normally, the valves offer a tight seal to prevent spillage and material waste.
They also keep the operator’s workplace conditions cleaner and safer.
The valves’ operating methods might be mechanical, electrical, or pneumatic.
This type of operation allows for more accurate regulation of the discharge processes.
You can choose from several different valve types.
Rounded valves, knife gated valves, rotational ball valves, butterfly nozzles, and plum-blossom displacement valves are all options based on the source materials.
The rotating shaft is the transverse passageway that revolves at high speed to keep the agitator moving efficiently and quickly.
The agitator rotation then causes the materials to be toppled over and outwardly conveyed inside the blender.
The shaft’s speed is usually variable. The outer Ribbon’s length determines it. The shaft normally rotates at a speed of 80–100 m/min.
This high speed is necessary for producing thorough and consistent blends in a short amount of time.
Commonly, ribbon blender machines have two spiral agitators containing anterior and posterior ribbons.
These are suitable for solid and liquid operations, such as solidified and diluted slurry.
The control unit is critical to the mixer’s general functionality.
The primary power controller, safety restriction switches, a fuse specifically for the rotors, and an emergency halt switch are all included in the control system.
This component is in charge of guaranteeing the machine’s efficient functioning.
However, the drive mechanism can be changed depending on; the type of materials, the starting technique, processes, power efficiency, and output speed.
The drive unit is made up of motors, and you can choose from various types.
Standard motors, adjustable speed motors, superior energy efficiency, renewable motors, as well as explosion resistance motors, are just but a few examples.
What Is The Working Principle Of A Ribbon Blender Machine?
Convection and dispersion are the two blending principles used by ribbon blenders.
The macro displacement of substantial sections of the material is known as convective blending.
When the materials are flipped over across the horizontal plane of the agitation system, convection blending ensues.
Diffusion blending, which happens when isolated particles are displaced relative to the adjacent particles, is the other form of Ribbon blending.
Diffusion happens in the ribbon blender whenever materials in front of the Ribbon are pushed in one orientation while neighboring partials remain stationary or lag.
Solids are mixed and blended when these two types of motion are combined.

Which Features Should You Consider In Ribbon Blender Machine?
The selection of mixers you use for your operation will greatly impact how quickly and successfully your recipe comes together.
Here are a few aspects to consider when selecting a ribbon blender for your materials and method.
Size And Volume
When choosing a ribbon mixer, the capacity and appearance of the blender are by far the most significant factors to consider. They would vary depending on how much material you’re mixing and how quickly it needs to be blended.
The Ribbon And Agitator Type
Some components may perform much better in a blender with blades rather than ribbons as the agitator.
A good example are substances that contain a lot of fluids or are vulnerable to shearing.
When configuring a ribbon mixer or any form of a blender, choosing the proper Ribbon or agitator type is critical.
The type of agitator you’ll need will be determined by the components you’re using. Also the amount of time and the mixer profile you’ll use for mixing will determine agitator you choose.
Mixer Construction Materials And Finish
Most ribbon blenders are made from stainless steel.
The building materials will be determined by the blended components and how those substances will be utilized.
When working with food-grade substances, the blender should be made of stainless steel with special coatings that make it easy to clean and disinfect.
If the contents are corrosive, stainless steel might be a better option, as milder steel would be dissolved over time by the substances.
Your ingredients or procedure may require other metals or finishes. These finishes may not be required if your products are not vulnerable to foodborne diseases.
When configuring your Ribbon Blender Machine, consider how your contents leave the blender. The best ribbon mixer will be determined in part by the processing duration and subsequent procedures.
Some operations may need a complete and quick shutdown. A full-length dropping underside delivery gate would be appropriate in this situation.
Other procedures may require a slower outflow or a firmer seal, in which case a slide-gate may be preferable.
