Available in many sizes from 1 through 500 cu.ft., Ross Vertical Blenders do not require a bottom support bearing to keep the screw steady so discharge is always virtually 100% complete. This “unsupported screw” design also simplifies cleaning and maintenance.
Pictured is a 1-cu.ft. Vertical Blender designed for vacuum operation up to 29.5”Hg. The screw agitator and the orbital arm are driven by two separate variable-speed motors to 100 rpm and 2.5 rpm, respectively. The dished cover includes sight glass ports, a 6” charging port, vacuum connection/exhaust, and quick-release clamps. A motorized lift raises and lowers the vacuum-rated conical vessel for complete access during cleaning. The Vertical Blender can be supplied with a jacket for heating/cooling as well as a lumpbreaker for breaking apart agglomerates when needed. On this unit, a double mechanical seal with barrier system is supplied for the lumpbreaker..
