Performance Personified in SB/SBH/SBI Shear Blender Series

Ampco Applied Products’ offers 3 shear blender model series: SB/SBH/SBI. Applications range from pharmaceutical to food, industrial to chemical… and everything in between.

These are highly engineered products with critical tolerances machined, manufactured and assembled in Glendale, Wisconsin. Teeth thickness, number of teeth, radius and Cartesian coordinates of the SBI blades can all be customized. Contact the Ampco Applied Products application engineering team for full details.

All models can be customized upon request based on the specific application requirements. 

SB Multi-Tasking Blender

The SB Series is the most versatile blender available. This highly engineered blender is designed with trapezoidal shaped teeth that can be adjusted by the end-user. A set of shims, provided with the unit, gives users the ability to adjust the clearances between the static and dynamic teeth to create clearances as close as .030”.

The SB Series of blenders is based on the Ampco LF Series Pump line and offers multiple front loading seal options. Wet end parts are precision machined in house from 316L bar stock. The SB blender is best suited for shear sensitive applications.

SBH High-Shear Blender

The high shear blending capability of the SBH is facilitated by the greater number and expanded rows of rectangular shaped teeth with radial slots for the highest shear possible.

Different cover and impeller sets are available for varying application requirements. The SBH Series, like the SB, is based on the LF Series pump design and offers multiple front loading seal options.

SBI Shear Pump

Pump and blend product in a single stage using the SBI Series. This innovative design can move product and create considerable pressure by way of a hybrid impeller.

This fine-tuned impeller design – used in combination with two rows of rectangular shear teeth – can attain amazing performance levels. As with the SB and SBH, the SBI is based on the Ampco LF Series pump and offers multiple front loading seal options.
