    • A&M Ribbon and Paddle Blenders are scientifically engineered, customized blenders, used for over 80 years for Food, Dairy, Pharmaceutical, Chemical, Plastics, and other industry processing. Each blender is customized to suit its intended application.

      The balanced ribbon design assures a constant and complete mixing action, while preventing product build up and minimal degradation. This positive mix action is based on multiple mixing of the feed product incorporating tumbling, shearing and horizontal displacement of every particle. The outer ribbons convey the material to the center or discharge point, while the inner ribbons move the material in the opposite direction for thorough end to end mixing.

      Paddle agitators are specially designed to lift, scoop, and tumble materials in a gentle, but thorough "figure 8" mixing action.  This agitator design is ideal for mixing fragile or abrasive ingredients, and for mixing solids or liquids of various particle size, share and density.

      Robust Construction:

      A & M Ribbon Blenders are available in batch working capacities from 1 cubic foot to 380 cubic feet for light, medium and heavy duty blending of powders, pastes, emulsions, and liquids. While A & M has specialized in the manufacture of sanitary stainless steel blenders, other materials of construction are also available including carbon steel, abrasion resistant steel, and other special nickel alloys.

      The "U" shaped blender shell is a one piece, all welded construction with radiused corners. Ribbon assembly is a three piece construction with bolted coupling flanges for ease of removal of the center ribbon section through the shell top. Agitators are supported on self-aligning, roller bearings in outboard, pillow block housings. Shafts are sealed with a robust stuffing box packing gland. The entire blender is supported on heavy, tubular legs with cross ties.

      Dependent on application and customer’s needs, selection of drive type, cover design, valve selection, etc. is customized for each individual blender. A diversified range of peripheral equipment can be incorporated into a complete system, including: filtered bag dump stations, sifters, lump breakers, feed and discharge conveyors, mezzanine platforms, weigh scale hoppers, etc.

      Sanitary Design:

      To meet today’s more stringent sanitary requirements in the food and pharmaceutical industry, close attention is given to ensure our equipment satisfies strict GMP standards. All interior welds are continuous, free from cracks and crevices, radiused (1/4" minimum), and ground smooth to a No. 4 (180 grit) finish. Agitators are one piece, solid round bar construction. Shaft seals are split design for ease of maintenance, are constructed entirely of stainless steel, and supplied with either FDA approved Teflon braided packing, or Pure PTFE Chevron seals. Equipment is fully passivated after fabrication. Material certifications supplied.

      Options:

      • High Speed Chopper
      • Agitator Designs (Ribbon/Paddle/Double Ribbon, etc.)
      • Jacketed Systems
      • Automatic Lid systems and tipping blenders

    Spherical Disk (Segment Ball) Valve
    supplier logo

    Highest quality valves for the highest requirements. Spherical disk valves (a.k.a. segmented ball valves) consists of a housing and a "segment or part" of a ball that is supported on two sides by maintenance-free bearings and sealed with an inflatable or static seal. The segment can have a spherical top or flat top (for a flush mounted interior surface as required by many mixers). A 90 degree rotation of the segment allows even difficult flowing products to pass the valve’s full bore in a short amount of time. During the rotation, the segment moves freely past the spherically shaped housing. A spherical disk valve can be used both as an inlet and an outlet valve and can be used to shut a stream of flowing product.

    Andocksysteme spherical disk valves are the most flexible available on the market today. As each application is different, they offer full customization for each valve.

    The valves are specifically designed for clean applications such as pharmaceuticals, foods and high purity chemicals. All valves can be CIP (cleaned in place with output the need to take apart). To achieve CIP the valves are supplied with special internal CIP nozzles.

    The most commonly used applications in which the spherical disk valves are used include: conical blenders, mixers and dryers, reactors, double conical dryers, horizontal blenders and dryers, agitator vessels, and in piping.

    High-level equipment with high-tech components. A few characteristics that the segment ball valve distinguishes itself from other valves are: high-grade seals; vacuum and pressure tight; full bore without any restrictions; a long service life, even at high and low temperatures; CIP; no dead space in product contacted areas and a high demand of quality for product contacted surfaces.

    Construction Materials:

    • Housing and Disk: AISI 316L stainless steel, Hastellloy HC 22, Allow 59 or Titan,
    • Seal Materials (FDA/USDA compliant): EPDM, Viton (FKM), or Perfluoroelastomer (FFKM),
    • Pressure: Up to 150 p.s.i.,

    All valves are supplied with material, finish and passivation certification.

    Seal types: The valves are supplied with either inflatable seals or static seals. The inflatable version not only assures 100% gas and liquid sealing but also is the best solution for abrasive products which would otherwise require a metal seat or frequent seal changes (and potentially contaminate your products).

    Actuation: Manual hand lever (for small valves), spring return (single acting) or double acting. Positioners can be added and the valve can also be used for dosing materials.

    Butterfly Sole Valve
    supplier logo

    Nearly 30 years ago Mr. Salvatore Lardieri, the owner of Co.Ra had a simple yet brilliant idea: A design for a very lightweight, ultra-clean butterfly valve that could be taken apart without tools. Before this moment all valves were heavy bolt together assemblies that could not be easily cleaned and inspected. Since this time Co.Ra has become the worldwide leader and innovator in sanitary valve designs and powder transfer technology.

    The butterfly sole valve has some key features that make it the valve of choice for the pharmaceutical and other clean industries:

    • Free floating disk design, no metal to metal contact,
    • Patented support system, wobble-free and robust,
    • 7 different body styles with over 30 standard actuation possibilities,
    • 316L, Hastellloy or FDA Delrin construction,
    • Certified high mirror finish, 0.02 µm,
    • Cleanroom produced, platinum cured silicon seals. Viton, EPDM and PTFE also standard.
