  • Fun with Blenders

    Ever since I was little my mom had always made us homemade milkshakes to go along with popcorn when watching television or a movie for the night. My sister and I loved having them and it was always a special treat for us. To make these my mom would put ice cream, chocolate and milk into the blender, mix it up, and they would be ready for tasting. As I got older I stated to help with the process of making them and learned how to use the blender first...

  • Differences Between Blenders and Mixers

    I've always wondered what the difference is between blenders and mixers. Both terms are used when referring to industrial blending machines, but what is the difference between the two? Are blenders a sub-category of a larger mixing phenomenon, or do the applications serve different purposes? They both either mix or blend two or more materials into a complete mix. I'm no expert, but from what I've noticed, there isn't much difference between the two. It's one of those wonderful English words that can be used interchangeably. Even so, I did...

  • The World's First Blender

    Chester Beach and Fredrick Osius opened up a world of possibilities for household appliance innovation after they invented the small electric motor. The small electric motor made possible most of the appliances we use today for example the blender. In 1922 Stephen Poplawski had the idea to put mixing blades in the bottom of a container. He sold this gadget to drug store soda fountain to make Horlick's malted milk shakes. Poplawski later received patents for a machine that would liquefy fruits and vegetables. Osius is sometimes credited as the...

  • New Features Offered on Ross Ribbon Blenders

    New features are being offered on Ross Ribbon Blenders for manufacturers requiring extra precision and efficiency. Ribbon Blenders are used for rapid blending of dry powders, granules, pellets and other solid forms. These machines also mix paste-like materials and solid-liquid suspensions. Materials are blended by a horizontal agitator consisting of inner and outer helical ribbons within a U-shaped trough. The ribbons are precisely pitched to move materials in a well-balanced axial and radial flow pattern. The pictured Model 42N-120SS, a 120-cu.ft. all-stainless steel Ribbon Blender, is equipped with the...

  • Bench Scale Dispersers

    Newly released from Mixer Direct, the DP1 line of bench top dispersers is one of the most economical and full featured disperser lines on the market.  The high shear dissolver can handle a wide range of volumes from 200 mL up to a 5 Gals.  The unique container holder adjusts so as to clamp the vessels in place firmly at a wide diameter range.  One step dispersion blade change out lets the operator quickly tune in a process, using different size dispersion blades or even different blade geometries that better...

Better Blenders On The Market

One big issue with blenders in the past was there always seemed to be a trade off between noise level and power. Some blenders are designed for heavy duty tasks and intended for extended periods of use but these blenders can often be loud. In situations where noise is a concern many users will turn to blenders that are quieter. Unfortunately these quiet blenders have much less output compared to their loud counterparts. Innovators in the blending industry are taking interesting approaches to these issues of noise versus power. Manufacturers are also taking great strides in making blenders more usable for a wide variety of industries.

Some manufacturers utilize new and unique blender designs to try and create blenders that will perform at a higher power rating but at lower decibels. Manufacturers are now creating blenders with enclosure devices. By enclosing the blender it muffles the high-pitched whine sound that has annoyed many operators.

Innovators have also been upgrading blender technologies to have higher levels of functionality. Companies have integrated more digital capabilities with their blenders. These innovations include: touch screen sliding controls for manual speed variable control, programming tools, and USB interfaces. This USB component is especially interesting because it allows for ongoing customizations with the blender. Most recipes call for different speed cycles based on the foodstuff and the desired viscosity. With these new blenders a user could find a recipe on the internet and then with the USB get the exact speed variable to blend the food. These blenders are just another example of the connective power and usability of the internet and new technologies.

Blenders

Blenders mix substances with comparable viscosities into a homogenous solution. Industrial blenders are synonymous with industrial mixers. Sometimes the term “blenders” is used in reference to pieces of equipment with sharper blades that rotate at higher speeds in order to break down larger items but manufacturers frequently use the two terms interchangeably.

Blenders and mixers are used to thoroughly combine any type of liquid or solid during the manufacturing process; they are usually large tanks or vats with motorized blades or paddles that rotate on a stationary shaft or remain stationary themselves. Stainless steel is most commonly used, especially within the food and beverage industry because of the metal’s sanitary and hygienic properties. Other potential materials include aluminum, steel or cast iron. Because most consumable products contain various ingredients that have been mixed through this industrial process, blenders are widely used across many industries. Nearly all types of consumables or products that come into direct contact with people including beverages, pills and drugs, toothpaste, foods, petroleum products and many other products must be processed by blenders and mixers. Blenders are also used frequently in the cosmetic, pharmaceutical, chemical, agricultural, pulp and paper, automotive, water treatment, adhesive and sealant industries.


Industrial blenders are generally composed of mixing blades, ribbons, impellers or propellers that are driven by a rotor-stator, a single rotor or a twin rotor. Certain applications require specific types of industrial blenders in order to achieve the appropriate consistency or end-product. Cost effectiveness and efficiency are often the most important considerations. Blenders have become more powerful, more efficient and more varied. Blades are machined to mix faster while the motors that power them are smaller and use less fuel than older models. Certain designs maximize certain benefits and the variety of blender shapes, sizes and abilities continues to expand. Some of the many types of industrial blenders include ribbon blenders, paddle blenders, vacuum blenders and dryers and agitators. Ribbon blenders are horizontal blenders containing two helical blades, one inside the other, pushing the contents of the mixer both inwards and outwards for thorough shearing mixing action; typically used at full capacity to mix dry or powdered ingredients, ribbon blenders may blend wet ingredients as well. Paddle blenders are similar, moving dry or powdered ingredients laterally and radially with paddles radiating from a horizontal screw. Vacuum mixers and dryers can have horizontal or vertical construction and use a combination of low internal heat and vacuum pressure to blend the mixture while removing moisture. Another very common type of mixer and therefore blender is an agitator with a single or double impeller to mix products with high viscosities.
