I used to have a (household) Oster blender designed with a removable blade assembly. The blade unit could screw onto a standard blender jar (open at the top) or onto a jar whose only opening was sealed by the threaded blade assembly. It actually fit onto mason jars, which was pretty handy. As long as the seals were kept in good shape, nothing leaked.

Subject: [DCHAS-L] explosion proof blender
Dear safety colleagues,
Hope the summer is finding you well. A professor at my school is looking for an intrinsically safe(or explosion proof) grinder /blender that he could use to blend small pieces of plastic in solvent( MEK, chloroform etc.), small enough to be left inside the fume hood. I was wondering if any of you have come across such equipment and/or manufacturer you would recommend.
Thank you very much for any thoughts you may have. Enjoy your Summer.
