Industrial blenders are necessities in many different fields. If you’ve never purchased them, however, you might be overwhelmed by the sheer number of possibilities on the market. Here are just a few “dos” and “don’ts” while you narrow things down and choose one out of hundreds.

Do: Know Your Field Requirements

How fast does your blender need to be? How much power does it need to operate or generate? What about size and weight specs? Make sure you understand your project demands before you go shopping for industrial blending equipment.

Don’t: Get Bogged Down By Labels

There are several types of industrial blenders on the market, including ribbon blenders, paddler blenders and cone blenders. If they all offer the function you need, however, try not to get overly stuck on their classification. Buy what will get the job done and not what the label says.

Do: Research Potential Manufacturers

When buying industrial equipment, you always want to check out what the company is like before actually handing them your money. This goes double if you’re custom-ordering parts or products. How long have they been in business? How many customers do they serve a year? Do they have a good reputation in the industry?

Don’t: Be Scared to Give Someone a Chance

While the big-name retailers might offer the greatest peace of mind, don’t be afraid to try your luck with an independent seller, too. As long as they get good reviews and have what you need, there’s no reason to distrust them or have “brand loyalty” to a competitor just because you’ve heard their name more.

Do: Have a Budget

Never go shopping without a budget. When you walk into a store or load a website for the first time, you should know exactly how much you can afford to spend on your dream machine.

Don’t: Take Your Budget as Gospel

In addition to the listed price of the product, you might also need to pay for things like shipping, assembly and insurance, so don’t get too caught up in your limits. Take your budget as a general suggestion rather than a hard limit.

These are just a few things to keep in mind as you search for the perfect industrial blender. Since they aren’t easily or comfortably returned, you’ll want to make the right decision the first time, so choose carefully and only when you feel completely confident about your purchase.
