Diamondback Technology's tumble blender incorporates the award-winning technology of the Diamondback Hopper to enhance blender performance. Its unique motion creates a crisscross flow, eliminating dead zones and enabling efficient cross-flow. This blender achieves rapid bulk solids mixing, often in under 30 revolutions, even with cohesive materials prone to causing hangups in other blenders.
Additionally, it handles combinations unsuitable for mechanically agitated blenders due to demixing tendencies or particle size degradation. The detachable Diamondback Hopper section serves as an anti-segregation container for seamless feeding into the next process. By prefilling the next batch into a spare hopper connected to the blender, total batch time can be reduced to three to ten minutes.
Dynamics of the Diamondback Tumble Blender
The Diamondback Tumble Blender's innovative diamond shape facilitates rapid particle movement, allowing for hang-up-free discharge. It promotes swift mixing at both high and low rotational speeds due to complex velocity gradients and sudden changes in particle motion.
Tests demonstrate effective mixing across various materials, including those prone to demixing at low speeds. Even cohesive mixtures showed excellent results. The blender's anti-bridging outlet ensures smooth discharge of the mixture.
