Charles Ross 42NSD-1SCharles Ross & Son introduces its 42NSD-1S multi-purpose ribbon blender as equipped with interchangeable double ribbon and paddle agitators. According to the company, this vacuum-rated blender additionally boasts:

  • Fast and thorough blending due to the agitator’s inner and outer helical ribbons, which are pitched to move material axially, in opposing directions, as well as radially.
  • Paddle agitators that deliver gentler mixing, which is more suited for shear-sensitive and friable applications.
  • A discharge extruder assembly installed along the bottom of the trough to enhance mixing, eliminate dead zones and enable 100 percent complete discharge.
  • NEMA 4X controls with a variable-frequency drive (VFD) keypad for convenient soft start and speed control of both the main agitator and the screw auger of the discharge extruder.
  • Accommodations for dry powders, granules, pellets and other solid forms.  
  • A maximum working capacity of 1 cubic foot.
  • The flexibility of the system to double as paste mixers, vacuum dryers and granulators/coaters (evenly coating a liquid or very fine solid component throughout the surfaces of larger particle ingredients).
  • An inverter-ready gearmotor.
  • Ideal suitability for most laboratory and pilot-scale blending requirements.
  • Optional sight/charge ports, safety gratings, pneumatically operated covers and discharge valves, sanitary construction, spray bar assemblies, heating/cooling jackets, caster wheels for portability, explosion-proof operator stations and HMI/PLC systems.
