Cone blender for bulk solids

Engineer Live News Desk

A new laboratory-sized Vee Cone Blender from Munson Machinery, model VB-.25-SSXHDI, achieves uniform blends of dry bulk solids, evacuates fully and cleans rapidly.

Two inclined cylinders mounted on pillow block bearings rotate end-over-end at 30 RPM, causing bulk material to fall, converge and divide with each rotation, achieving consistent blends in 15 to 30 minutes typical.  

Smooth interior surfaces allow unobstructed material flow, as well as complete discharge for thorough cleaning between changeovers.

The specialised model can blend materials having bulk densities up to 1.6 g/cm3 in capacities up to 7.65 ℓ, and is equipped with an independently powered Intensifier Bar that breaks up soft agglomerates and improves diffusion of materials. Also available is a Dispersion Bar that sprays liquid additions onto the moving materials, minimising cycle times required to achieve batch uniformity.

Housed in a safety-interlocked polycarbonate enclosure with lifting handles, the unit is constructed of carbon steel with stainless steel material contact surfaces finished to industrial standards. Also offered are all-stainless-steel, sanitary units finished to USDA, 3-A and pharmaceutical standards.
