Ribbon mixers are used to mix or blend a wide range of materials used in different industries including the food,chemical, pharmaceutical, plastic and mineral industries. They are mainly used to mix different materials using different types of blades to make a good quality homogeneous mixture. They can operate at different temperatures and pressures for mixing different solutions and can also have internal or external heating systems added to them.
In addition to performing typical batch mixing operations, some mixing can be done continuously. One or more dry ingredients and one or more liquid ingredients can be accurately and consistently metered into the machine and see a continuous, homogeneous mixture come out the discharge of the machine.
