Ribbon Blenders

Ribbon Blenders

MIXSYS Ribbon Blender triple action agitator ensures rapid, homogeneous blending of even the most difficult blending applications. Our Ribbon Blender is especially well suited for fragile, heat sensitive products. While maintaining counter-directional flow, the outer paddles minimize pinch points at the wall thus introducing less frictional heat than a continuous outer ribbon.
