Ribbon blending is a long established blending technology that creates many material handling challenges both in the loading and unloading process. Rheo offers a few customizable material handling packages for this process. For rooms with very tight head space, a simple Column Lift that brings the container to the level of the blender opening may be helpful. A Ventilation Sleeve placed on the cover the blender provides local dust extraction during the filling process. The Mobile Ventilation Sleeve or portable Product Screener can be used to capture airborne dust during the emptying process of the blender.
