Double Cone Blender

Double cone blenders

The Double Cone Blender is efficient and versatile equipment for homogeneous mixing of dry powder and granules. The blender name is derived from its body shape. This blender is probably the oldest member in family of industrial blenders. The effective volume for optimum homogeneity is between 35-60% of gross volume. The ease of operation, cleaning, charging, discharging and absence of contamination has resulted in it being widely used in blending of dry powders and granules. The slant double cone design eliminates dead spots which occasionally occur in conventional double cone mixer. It is commonly used for pharmaceutical, food, chemical and cosmetic products.

The particle size reduction is minimized due to the absence of any moving blades. The shape of blender body results in a near complete discharge of product material, clearly an added advantage over horizontal blender.

Internal attachments like lump breakers and liquid dispensers widen the applications of this blender. The blender can also be modified for use as a Rotary Vacuum Dryer.

  • Available in working capacities of 5 Liters to 5000 Liters. Other sizes manufactured on request.
  • Jacketed construction available for steam and cooling applications.
  • Can be offered for vacuum application.
  • Easy to clean and maintain.

Application

  • Dry mixing of free flowing powders. Granules requiring low shearing force.
  • Good for bulk product blending in Pharmaceutical, Chemical and other Allied industries.

V-blenders are very popular in a wide variety of industries. The blending performance of this type of blender has shadowed many of the members in the blender family. They offer both short blending times and efficient blending. The blend is achieved by the constant dividing and intermeshing of particle movement provided by two connected cylinders.

The particle size reduction is minimized due to the absence of any moving blades. The shape of blender body results in a near complete discharge of product material, clearly an added advantage over horizontal blender. The V-blender is good for blending dry powders and granulated products. Absence of shaft projection eliminates product contamination.
