Buying the Right Blending Machine

The world of blending machines is an extensive one, so you can’t be blamed for feeling a little overwhelmed by all of the choices on the market. However, you’ll need to make up your mind sooner or later! When you feel like taking the plunge, here are just a few things to consider about your future blender purchase.

Type

There are many different types of industrial blenders out there, including:

– Paddle blenders
– Ribbon blenders
– Jacketed blenders
– Rotary blenders

There are pros and cons to owning each of them, so don’t listen to any website trying to claim that one model is definitely superior to another. They’re probably just trying to sell that particular model.

Materials

What are you mixing in your blenders? There might be specific models and designs that are more conductive to your material types. The best blender for food processing might not be the ideal blender for chemical processing, so further research will be necessary to figure out which one is best for you.

Volume

This is somewhat related to size and unit capacity, but it’s also related to blade type. The blades in your blender can have a big impact on your daily volume numbers. The same goes for shear intensity. Is it gentle or harsh? Does it work quickly or thoroughly? Think about these things before committing to a particular blender or blender type.

Power

The motor is the most important part of an industrial blender, so make sure that you’re looking at products with a size and speed output that you like. You should also pay attention to things like continuous and non-continuous designs. These can affect how quickly and efficiently you’re able to mix your materials.

If you’re in the market for an industrial blending machine, these tips can help you find a suitable one. Don’t be afraid to take things slowly. Since industrial blenders are big, expensive and time-consuming to deliver, you shouldn’t rush into a purchase decision. It’ll be a real pain to ship something back if you don’t like it!
