Ribbon blender cleaning is often considered a challenge, due to the tank construction and the materials being mixed within the ribbon blender. Most often used in the pharmaceutical, food, chemical, fertilizers, plastics, pigments, and cosmetic industries, Alfa Laval tank cleaning offers an ideal solution for ribbon blender cleaning.
The Alfa Laval GJ9 ribbon blender cleaning machine is typically used because it offers high impact, spray cleaning designed to scour the entire tank, reducing operating time and wash fluid usage. Multiple devices are used, placed on either end of the center line. Although the ribbons should not run during cleaning, we recommend they be jogged to help dislodge stubborn residue.
The GJ9 uses 12 lbs of cleaning force at 10 feet (5.5 kg at 3 m) and is capable of cleaning the most challenging residues in a ribbon blender. Compact, durable and easy to maintain, the GJ 9 typically cleans ribbon blenders in 4 – 12 minutes.
