Mixers & Blenders

Paddle Mixers

Whereas ribbon blenders create opposing streams in a vessel, paddle mixers create a tumbling effect by lifting the mix and letting gravity do the rest. This method is the gentler way of mixing product, though it may be slower per cubic foot of...

Hybrid Mixers

Hybrid mixers combine the agitators from ribbon and paddle mixers. This can be useful for products that are too delicate for ribbon mixers but won't be mixed well enough by paddles, or for mixes which mound. The combination of these two methods has...

Fluidizing Blenders

Fluidizing blenders, or fluidizers, are a class of paddle blender meant for mixing finely divided solids with varying densities. The paddles are smaller, differently shaped, set at decreasing distances along the shaft, and spun more quickly than...

Plow Blenders

Plow blenders use wedge-like plows attached to a high-speed rotor to lift the product and create a weightless effect, helping negate problems caused by differences in particle size or density. They’re adept at mixing solids to solids, liquids to...

Ribbon Blenders

Ribbon blenders are one of the oldest automated mixing methodologies and use u-shaped troughs with opposing sets of helical agitators—one inner, and one outer. By forming 2 opposing cyclones within the product, they create homogeneous mixes quickly...
