Dual Shaft Blender

Dual Shaft Blenders come in a wide variety of types and are used for many applications. Technically, they are made of two tubs setting side by side with one shaft sitting in the middle of each tub, thus, dual shafts. The shafts can be driven by one motor and a cross-over drive turning the second shaft. Or, they can be driven by two different motors. These shafts can turn in the same direction, opposite directions, or reverse direction from time to time. The two main shafts can be overlapping, i.e. so close together that each one is pulling product away from the other one. Or, they can be just far enough apart to keep them from touching. With independent drive motors on each shaft, you can work one shaft against the other shaft and even run them at different rpm speeds or in different directions. They can use any type of ribbon or blade style that is used on other blenders.

If you have an interest in one of these blenders, please call one of AIM Blending Technologies, Inc. applications design experts. Dual Shaft blenders do tend to be application specific and we can help you sort out what type you are looking for.
