Do's And Don'ts When Using A Ribbon Blender

To help ensure a long service life out of your capital investment and obtain high quality blends in every single batch, consider the following tips on ribbon blending. A well-designed, well-specified ribbon blender operating under normal conditions can easily last 20, 30 years and beyond; this bulletin presents some ribbon blending tips to ensure long service life and produce consistent high quality blends.

Some do’s and don’ts to consider

  • Do size your blender properly. The desired batch volume (not mass) determines the size of the ribbon blender but bulk density determines horsepower and if a standard or heavy-duty model is required.
  • Do not replace your existing ribbon blender’s motor with a larger one to handle a new higher-density formulation, at least not without consulting your blender manufacturer.
