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 technical blenders
and is in use from 1960's. 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.
