Conical Mixer Dryer “RIBOCONE” is a multi-purpose equipment that can be used for mixing, drying, cooling, vacuum drying, filtration & (vacuum) drying and heating treatment (for decreasing of viable cells, for crystallization, for chemical reactions).
The equipment consists of a vertical cone-shaped vessel with specially combination of top placed vortex breakers and helical ribbon agitator with minimal clearance to the side walls enabling the feed materials to be mixed and /or dried uniformly and efficiently resulting in a quality final product. The internal dead free design avoid cross contamination and easies cleaning process.
Larger heating surface results in above-average heat transfer through continuous mixing and intensive product contact with the heated side wall, resulting shorter drying time.
The feed materials are lifted upwards along the heated side wall, after which it sinks downwards again inside the process chamber resulting in a uniform temperature and product humidity across the entire product chamber. Its vertical design, and lack of bearing on the bottom of the vessel ensures a quick full product discharge.
Drive and bearings are located outside of the mixing chamber in order to prevent risk of product contamination due to lubricants, amongst others.
RIBOCONE has been one of our best-selling equipments.
More than 450 units have been delivered worldwide for a wide variety of applications such as processing of food, functional food, chemicals, pharmaceutical ingredients, nutraceuticals, ceramics, plastic, polymers, solvent recovery (explosion-proof model only), among others.
Test unit available in Japan and Europe (Italy).
