Two large doors of the model XHD-36-SSCYLI cylindrical plow blender provide access for sanitizing and visual inspection of all material contact surfaces.
Blender handles dry, fibrous, dense, interlocking, or moist/oily bulk materials

This new cylindrical plow blender with feed hopper and intensifiers handles dry, fibrous, dense, interlocking, or moist/oily bulk materials in batches up to 40 cu ft.

A high-strength agitator shaft with radial arms rotates wedge blades at high speed within tight tolerance of a heavy-gauge vessel, creating a fluidizing action that keeps the material in constant motion, regardless of particle size, shape or density, imparting the required energy to achieve uniform blends. Two independently-powered, high-speed tulip-shaped intensifiers produce any shear necessary to assist with dispersion.

The unit achieves batch uniformity in ratios to one part per thousand, blends faster than trough-style horizontal mixers, and handles a greater variety of materials, including thinner pastes.   

Constructed of #304 or #316 stainless steel and finished to sanitary standards, it is suitable for food, pharmaceutical, chemical, plastics, or other applications in which cleanout is important to avoid cross-contamination.

It is equipped as standard with dual access doors on the side, a bottom discharge port, and air purge packing shaft seals. Optional are heating or cooling jackets, injection ports for liquid additions, and various discharge and inlet configurations.
