V-Blender Basics

V-blenders – also known as twin shell blenders – are characterized by their V-shape. This comes from the connection between two blending shells, leading to efficient blending of solids into liquids or solids into solids. These systems use diffusion to effectively blend materials, increasing mobility to individual particles to ultimately create a high state of homogeneity.

As the shell rotates, the materials inside are intermixed. Each cycle takes about 15 minutes, and different discharges are available for poor-flowing materials. This action makes the V-blender a perfect addition to any business in the pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, chemicals, and ceramic processing industries.


V-Blender Benefits

V-blenders are extremely useful for dry blending of free flowing solids that range in density. There are many benefits to investing in one of these systems for your business:

  • Minimal particle size reduction due to no moving blades
  • Simple charging and discharging of materials
  • Perfect for fragile materials due to minimal attrition
  • Nearly complete discharge of product material
  • Easy to clean and sanitize
  • Eliminate product contamination due to no shaft projection

Common models include O’Hara Model VB6-100, A&M Process Model ATS-500, GlobePharma Maxiblend Model HB-1V, Patterson Kelley Model LB 8, Patterson Kelley Model LB-6308, and many others. If you can’t find the specific model you are looking for contact us and we may be able to source exactly what you need.

In addition to V-blenders we also sell similar equipment, including double-cone and conical blenders and mixers.
