Ribbon Blender Provides Low Cost and High Efficiency

In the light of the developing technology, growing machine technology makes the life of people remarkably easier. Progress in mixer technology is one of them. Ribbon mixer saves time by fully homogenizing mixtures and provides an economic contribution. Ribbon blenders become very popular mixing devices because of maintenance, setup cost and the low cost of the product they produce compared to the other blenders in this industry.

Why do you need Ribbon Blender? 

The ribbon mixer ensures homogeneous, economically efficient mixing processes. Ribbon blender is outlined to meet proficient mixing and blending capabilities. Ribbon blender is utilized to suitably blend and mix dry solid and solid materials or powdered components to deliver a fine and homogenous mixture.
There are inner and outer ribbons working in up and down direction to mix the powder in a short time. There are various special mixing options for ribbon blender mixers such as heating system
integrated and high-speed mixing blades with respect to the powder.

1. Wide Range of Application and Exceptionally Few Crushes

Having a double ribbon agitator makes ribbon mixer machine multipurpose. It is also reasonable for mixing the powder-powder, powder-liquid, paste and materials having highly sticky consistency like putty. Material destructiveness could not be seen because of having a spiral speed of the ribbon. Besides, the ribbon does not collapse or stops functioning easily.

Mixer Tank Bottom Design: Which one is the best?

Mixer tanks are the backbone of today’s modern liquid fabrication facilities and it is very important to choose the right mixer tank head for the effective blending.
Imagine you are mixing two substances in a glass with a spoon. The shape of the glass determines our hands range of motion and effectiveness of mixing itself. Mixing tanks are just big glasses with different mixing head variations which should be chosen correctly.

As one of the mixing tank head designs, dished head mixer tanks have rounded endings. This blending vessel design offers rigidity and strength. Dished mixing tank head design offers the best overall fluid flow and solids suspension performance, also. The rounded bottom of the mixer vessel helps with the draining of the liquids and provides significantly better solids suspension performance than a flat bottom or cone bottom. In conclusion, dished bottom blending tanks shine out in terms of rigidity, strength, axial flow pattern and drainage of the liquid substances.
The main disadvantage of the dished headed mixer tanks is the increment of the tanks overall size. Since the blending tank height is increased the mixer mill height is also increased correspondingly. This affects the mixer tank fabrication costs in a negative way.

Another type, cone bottom mixer tanks are very common in many industries since they provide successful drainage until every last drop of the product being mixed.
Blending tanks with cone bottom has an ideal geometry for draining high solid content solutions but cone bottom mixer vessels can cause layering, radial flow and heat gradients of the suspension if the solid concentration is more than 5%. This also means that possible liquid-solid separation can happen at the cone bottom of the mixing vessel because of the bottom geometry. Same mill height problem (and increased cost) of the dished head blending tanks is valid for cone bottom designs.

As a third alternative, sloped bottom mixer tanks are designed with a sloped bottom. In this design, accessing the bottom of the tank is easier, ideal for tanks with drainage on the bottom. This type of mixing vessels provide best draining performance without increasing the tank size comparing to the cone bottom. But when the elevation increases it is getting more difficult to the elevated area and also achieve a perfect solids suspension percentage in the mixing tank. Because of that it is very important to choose the right bearing and shaft design for the adaption.

Finally, the last and oldest mixing tank flat bottom design is the flat bottom. These type of mixer tanks are more cost friendly comparing to the other bottom designs. They are broadly used and do not affect the overall mixing performance in a negative way. Since flat bottom mixer tank is designed shorter comparing to the other designs (less height) they require a shorter shaft, also. In addition to the economic advantage of this situation, flat bottom mixing vessel has a neutral shape for solids suspension and liquid movement. As a normal result of being flat, the drainage is not as good as it is in the other mixing tank bottom designs. If the viscosity of the liquid substances is relatively high, the customer can not expect a good drainage of the solution.

As a conclusion, the tank bottom design depends on different factors we explained and it is very circumstantial. It is not possible to say one design surpass the others. As a World-wide mixing tank manufacturer, 3A Makina are eager to recommend the right tank bottom design. We always encourage our potential customers to decide the mixer tank end design altogether. Experience plays a crucial part when deciding the right mixing tank and this is where 3A Makina comes forward.

Tank Geometry: Choosing the Right Mixing Tank System

As a World-wide mixing tank manufacturer, we are often asked about the right geometry of our mixing vessels by our potential customers. The tank geometry plays a crucial role in the mixing process since it affects the mixer design, also.

Different mixing tank geometries have advantages and also disadvantages in terms of price, effectiveness, installation space and structure. Two common mixing vessel designs are cylindrical or sharp-edged also called rectangular. Both of these mixing tank designs can be similar in the body part of the vessel but the bottom part is all different.

Rectangular Mixing Tanks

Rectangular mixing tanks are usually designed with flat bottoms which help to the mixing process with acting as baffles at the bottom of the tank. This type of mixer tank design allows the transfer of the mixer group’s power more effectively in the mixture. However, they can cause sticking of the solid mixed products to the edges which is a problem for the mixing tanks volume and the suspension of the solids in the mixture. Rectangular mixer tanks have higher fabrication costs, also. They are recommended for liquid-liquid mixtures.

Cylindrical Mixing Tanks

Cylindrical mixing tanks usually called as better design even they required to add baffles in the mixing vessel to prevent swirling motion of the mixing product or even vortexing. The position of the mixing group plays a crucial role in preventing the vortex and placing the baffles in the correct position of the mixing tank. With dished or conical bottom designs of the mixer tank it easy to prevent the sticking of the product and use the mixing place more efficiently. The viscosity of the mixing product is also very important for the mixer vessel design and the requirement of baffles. The cylindrical mixing tanks are more economical solution in the fabrication aspects and also they are more space friendly in the facility comparing to the rectangular mixing tanks.

As an experienced manufacturer, 3A Makina helps its customers to choose the best possible mixer vessel in their process after a detailed analysis. Please contact us for your potential mixing tank projects or mixing vessel renewals in your current mixing process.
