Features include gas purging capability, a 16” pneumatically-operated discharge valve, 5-passage rotary union, explosion-proof brake motor and PLC controls

Charles Ross & Son has launched the Double Cone Tumble Blender (Model DCB), designed for large-scale blending of free-flowing solids in laboratory, pilot and production sizes.

In a repeatable process, minor and micro ingredients are distributed throughout the batch more gently than in the more common V-shaped geometry, the company claims, without damaging fragile or sensitive components.
