The powders used in manufacturing cosmetics need to be smooth in texture and uniform in composition. Gentle mixing is one of the ways to achieve good morphological properties of cosmetics. Our Ribbon Blender is suitable for such cosmetic powder applications.
Ribbon Blenders equipped with helical ribbons are well proven in the manufacturing of cosmetic powders. Dry raw materials such as talc, titanium dioxide, mica, iron oxides, silica, zinc oxide, clay, rice starch and various other pigments are loaded into a U-shaped trough. Any wet ingredients including the liquid binder and perfumes are gradually added to the blend through atomizing spray nozzles.
The position and precise pitch of each ribbon are designed to produce a well-balanced axial and radial flow pattern: the outer ribbon moves materials in toward the center, and the inner ribbon moves them out toward the walls. At the same time, the difference in the ribbons speed causes product to move along the blender’s horizontal axis in two opposite directions.
