A new laboratory-sized Vee Cone Blender from Munson Machinery (Utica, NY), 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 specialized model can blend materials having bulk densities up to 100 lb/cu ft (1.6 g/cm3) in capacities up to 8 qt (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, minimizing cycle times required to achieve batch uniformity.
