V-Blender Video – Design & Operation

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.

Internal attachments like lump breakers and liquid dispensers widen the applications of this blender.
