Munson’s new Ribbon Blender 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 is said to distribute ingredients uniformly during loading, blending and discharge. It forces a split double-helical agitator through stationary material, producing homogeneous blends in typically five to six minutes, reports the company. www.munsonmachinery.com
