Industrial equipment supplier Munson Machinery, Utica, New York, USA has introduced a 28 litre Vee Cone Blender, the VB-1-S316, which is said to achieve uniform blends of dry bulk solids in a typical 15-30 minutes, with little or no product degradation. The blender is constructed from 316 stainless steel and is available finished to industrial, food, dairy and pharmaceutical standards.

Suitable for laboratory testing, pilot plants or low-volume blending of dry powders and granular materials, the unit reputedly delivers equal homogeneity at fill volumes from 100% to 25% of rated capacity.

Smooth internal surfaces free of baffles, shafts and bearings, are said to allow complete discharge through a 152 mm hand-wheel-operated butterfly valve, eliminating material waste. Access to internal surfaces through the discharge valve and twin doors at the ends of the inclined cylinders permits thorough sanitising in minutes, preventing cross contamination.

The Vee Cone chamber rotates at up to 30 RPM, driven by a .75 kW wash-down motor, imparting a tumbling action that is gentler and less energy consuming than ribbon blenders and other agitated machines in which blades, paddles or plows are forced through stationary material.

A safety-interlocked polycarbonate housing is intended to protect operators from the rotating vessel.

An optional intensifier bar can break up soft agglomerates, and be equipped with spray ports to distribute liquid additions throughout the batch.

Munson Machinery also offers Vee Cone Blenders in capacities from 8-5,663 litres, as well as a variety of others mixers, blenders and size reduction machinery.
