All of our standard series ribbon blenders are manufactured in T304 Stainless Steel. T304 meets food grade requirements; and offers exceptional resistance to corrosion, wear and tear, and ensures a long life and the value of your equipment. For certain applications where high levels of corrosive agents are present, we can manufacture in T316 Stainless Steel.
The name sake of Stricklin ribbon blenders feature double helical ribbon agitators fit to a solid stainless steel shaft. We also offer paddle style agitators, as well as ribbon mixers with scraper blades.
Stricklin Blenders utilize direct drive style gear motors to power our equipment. Direct drive systems have proven highly reliable and require less maintenence than traditional chain drive systems. Our standard drive motors offer a service factor for continual mixing throughout the day. Based on the capacity of your equipment we offer a drive motor consistent for normal mixing conditions; although we can modify this to higher powered equipment, different RPM and variable speed drive systems if requested.
Our ribbon blenders come standard with our Stricklin packing glands. Packing glands feature a teflon style rope which is compressed against the end plate, creating a barrier to keep the mixing product in the trough. These work very well for both dry and wet mixing applications.
As an upgrade for your blender we also offer air purged seals for powders or slurry mixes. These air seals are ideal for scenarios requiring caustic wash downs and sanitary requirements. These seals are easy to disassemble for regular cleaning and offer years of service.
Based on your mixing requirements your blender can be fitted with different styles of discharge systems. Our most common style discharge is a butterfly valve, which works well in wet mixing solutions as well as dry. For dry mixing we offer the Stricklin slide gate in manually operated or pneumatically actuated. The benefit of our slide gate system is zero ‘dead spot’ in the mix.
Our blenders standard height is to set the discharge 40” from the ground, allowing for a pallet and barrel below the equipment. This height can be increased or decreased based on your needs.
Our blenders come standard with hand open lids. As an optional feature, we can add a pneumatic cylinder for lifting.
Stricklin Company can also build a Stricklin vent-a-hood system or a custom model to your designs.
Stricklin ribbon blenders are built with safety as our highest priority. Stricklin ribbon blenders standard is to include ALL of our available safety equipment. These systems include micro switches to prevent the agitator from turning when the lid is open. We also offer safety grates on the top and discharge. All safety labeling is standard as well on Stricklin equipment.
