Benefits Of Tumble Blending In The Food Industry

A tumble blender is a rotating device that comes in a variety of geometries, the most common being the symmetrical V-shaped or double-cone configurations. The vessel is partially loaded with product and rotated at operating speeds in the range of 5 to 25 revolutions per minute. Diffusion is the main mechanism for mixing: batch materials cascade down, distributing particles over a freshly exposed surface as the vessel rotates on a horizontal axis.
