Convection Blending

Convection Blending

  • 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.
