Ribbon Blender Mixing Friability
Friability is an important consideration in agitated blenders. Friability is the ease with which a solid is broken down into smaller particles due to the stress induced on individual particles by the agitator. Everything from sodium sulfide flakes to trail mix and cereals are friable and depending on the amount of particle breakage that is acceptable, mixer selection, design and loading will vary.
To avoid excess stress on friable solids they can be mixed in smaller batches or they can be mixed in tumble blenders or fluidizing blenders.
