Industrial Dry Blending and Drying Equipment Industrial Dry Blending and Drying Equipment

Ross is the leading supplier of Ribbon, Tumble and Vertical Blenders for dry powder blending and drying for the process industries. Many products including pharmaceuticals, foods, chemicals, fertilizers, plastics, pigments, and cosmetics are manufactured in Ross dry blending equipment.

Vertical Blenders For Manufacturing Vertical Blenders For Manufacturing

Ross V-Blenders are most often used for the intimate dry blending of free flowing solids. The solids being blended in these units can vary in bulk density and in percentage of the total mixture. Materials being blended are constantly being split and intermixed as the shell rotates. Normal cycle times are typically in the range of 15 minutes, however can be less depending on the difficulty of blending.
