Munson Machinery has introduced the new Model VB-10-316S Sanitary Vee-Cone Blender with 10 cu ft capacity. The smooth internal surfaces are free of baffles, shafts and bearings, allowing unobstructed material flow, as well as complete discharge through a gate valve. According to the company, the absence of residual material, together with easy access to internal surfaces through the discharge valve and doors at the ends of the inclined cylinders, allows rapid sanitizing to prevent cross-contamination. Uniform blends are typically achieved in 5 to 15 minutes with equal efficiency at fill volumes from 100 percent to 25 percent of rated capacity, depending on material. Intended for dry and granular materials, the blender provides a tumbling action that is more gentle than that of agitated machines in which blades, paddles or plows are forced through stationary material.
