Cement mixers, ice cream mixers, massive blender tubs at food plants – all those are massive industrial blenders that work to mix product for an industry. But just because a blender mixes a product doesn’t mean that it’s a good industrial blender. Sadly, though, that’s what sometimes happens.
Certain types of blenders mix certain types of supplies really well, while others are highly specialized. Ribbon blenders are used for many industries because they work very well, while rotary blenders are only used when something needs to be produced in bulk.
Understanding what it is that needs to be mixed and how much of it is needed will help in picking the right blender for the job, as well as the level of research that is done.
Blending is a science
The purpose of a blender is to mix ingredients together at high speeds, and that requires study, knowledge of blender safety and ways to ensure that the blender will last a long time. Companies that specialize in making blenders often have entire teams dedicated to this purpose.
If a blender is needed, be sure to ask around about the blender’s longevity and the study that has gone into its creation. Most people will be happy to answer questions and ensure the blenders will last as long as needed.
Many moving parts
Almost every industrial blender has a ton of moving parts, from the casing, to the paddles, to the various electronic components that make everything run, and many of these parts are different from other industrial blending machines. The good blenders will have parts that can increase their longevity and working time, as well as their speed.
All blenders are good, and some are better than others, so knowing what goes into making a mixer will help a customer understand what makes one good.
