Mixing & Blending

Paul O. Abbe offer four types of solids blenders and mixers for solids and pastes of all viscosities:

Ribbon Blenders and Paddle Mixers are cost effective and widely used for blending solids and light pastes in all process industries. The moderate shear of the ribbon or paddle mixer naturally breaks down lumps and agglomerates. These horizontal ribbon mixers are efficient, rugged and economical. Dual-shaft paste mixers, heating jacket and vacuum designs are also available

Tumble Blenders include the original Rota-Cone® Double Cone Blender and Rota-V Blenders. Tumble blending offers a simple low-shear method of mixing all solids including friable and delicate solids. The clean internal design provides complete discharge and easy cleaning.

CrossMix® Fluidizing Mixers gently blends solids in a weightless zone in as lttle as 7 seconds. The CrossMix® is fast because it's efficient. The CrossMix® is ideal for mixing applications requiring high homogeneity or blending delicate and friable solids from trial mix or fertilize prill to crystalline pharmaceuticals crystals. The CrossMix® is also designed to quickly coat solids with liquids and oils.

Double Arm Mixers and Mixer Extruders are based on a combination of 100+ years of ABBE rugged reliability and the latest Aaron Process Double Arm Mixer and Mixer/Extruder designs. These rugged mixers are designed to mix and compound plastics, rubber, adhesives, mastics up to 10,000,000 centipoise and solids such as carbon paste, powdered metals and ceramics. Double Arm Mixers can be jacketed and vacuum rated for drying. Discharge can be by extrusion screw, tilt or bottom dump valves.

  

Rota-Cone Blenders

Tumble Blenders include the original ABBE Rota-Cone® Double Cone Blender and the Rota-V Blenders. Tumble blending offers the lowest shear method of mixing friable or delicate solids. The simple double-cone or V-designs provide complete discharge. Because there is no agitator there are no seals and they are easily inspected and cleaned. For these reasons, Tumble Blenders are often employed by the food and pharmaceuticals industrie (more...)

Rota-Vee Blenders

Vee Tumble Blenders provide a low shear method of mixing friable or delicate solids. The simple V shape design provides complete discharge.  Tumble Blenders are often used in the food and pharmaceuticals industries. Materials: Stainless Steel, Carbon Steel. Sizes: 10 to 200 cubic feet (more...)


Dual Shaft Ribbon and Paddle Mixers

Materials: Stainless Steel, Carbon Steel. Sizes: 3.25 to 260 cubic feet Design Options: • Liquid Addition • Polished Contact Surface • CIP - Clean-In-Place Spray Nozzles (more...)

Double Arm Mixers

Double Arm Mixers are based on a combination of 100+ years of ABBE rugged reliability and the latest Aaron Process Double Arm Mixer designs. These mixers are used for mixing plastics, rubber, adhesives, mastics up to 10,000,000 centipoise and solids such as carbon paste, powdered metals and ceramics. Double Arm Mxiers can be jacketed and vacuum rated for drying. Mixer discharge is tilt or bottom dump valves. Our mixer/extrude (more...)


Double Arm Mixer Extruders

Double Arm Mixer Extruders are based on a combination of 100 years of ABBE rugged reliability and the latest Aaron Process Double arm Mixer designs. These mixers are used on plastics, rubber, adhesives, mastics up to 10,000,000 centipoise and solids such as carbon paste, powdered metals and ceramics. Double Arm Mxiers can be jacketed and vacuum rated for drying. Discharge is extrusion screw.  (more...)

CrossMix® Fluidizing Mixer

The CrossMix®   is a twin-paddle mixer that gently lifts and fluidizes solids in a weightless zone where particles of any size or shape can move freely and mix rapidly. Mixing can be completed in as little as 7 to 20 seconds. The CrossMix® is most beneficial for solids that require very high homogeneity, are fragile such a (more...)


Ribbon and Paddle Blenders

Paul O. Abbe Double Ribbon Blender designs and manufacturers new ribbon blenders and are ideal for mixing dry free-flowing solids with bulk densities up to 90 pounds per cubic foot (1.45 g/cc). Ribbon blender are used for all dry foods products, nutraceuticals, protein powder mixes, dry juice mixes, chemicals, fertilizer, insecticides, colorants, resins and polymers. The moderate shear of the ribbon or paddle naturally breaks down lumps an (more...)
