Lab Vee Cone blender has intensifier bar, air brake

Published: 23-May-2024

Rapid sanitising and visual inspection prevent cross-contamination between changeovers

A new 28 litre capacity Vee Cone Blender model VB-1-SSIS for laboratory and pilot applications features an intensifier bar and air brake. Constructed and finished to sanitary standards, it is equipped with an internal spray line with an intensifier bar for rapid dispersion of liquid additions throughout the batch, and a pneumatically actuated brake to stop rotation for loading or unloading the batch.

Two inclined cylinders with smooth internal surfaces rotate end-over-end, allowing complete discharge through a lever-operated butterfly valve. The absence of residual material, combined with easy internal access through the cylinder doors and discharge valve, allows rapid sanitising and visual inspection of all material contact surfaces, preventing cross-contamination between changeovers.

The gentle tumbling action achieves uniform blends more rapidly than standard Double Cone Blenders (also available from the company), in 15 to 30 minutes typically. Mixing chamber rotation is driven by a 0.55 kW stainless steel wash-down motor with a shaft-mounted gear reducer, while the intensifier bar is powered by a 0.74 kW stainless steel wash-down motor.

Also offered by the company are Vee Cone Blenders in capacities from 8 to 5,663 litres, as well as Rotary Batch Mixers, Ribbon/Paddle/Plough Blenders, Fluidised Bed Mixers, Rotary Continuous Mixers, and Variable Intensity Blenders. Size reduction machinery includes Pin Mills, Screen Classifying Cutters, Attrition Mills, Lump Breakers, Rotary Knife Cutters, Hammer Mills, and Shredders.
