The three primary mechanisms of blending of solids are as under:
- Convection blending
- Diffusion blending
- Shear blending
- Convection blending is characterized by large scale random motion of solid particles.Paddle blenders, vertical ribbon blender, horizontal ribbon blenders function by convection blending.
- Depending on the geometry of the mixing blade (agitator) and the mixing vessel, the movement of solid particles shall occur in both axial and radial direction.
- In addition, the bulk motion of particles also depends on the speed of rotation of the agitator.
