The new feature allows the double-cone and tumbling V-cone vessels to safely decelerate to a complete stop while in the upright position.
Charles Ross & Son Company (Hauppauge, NY) has added an electro-magnetic brake to its line of Ross tumble blenders as an “added safety feature.” The new feature allows the double-cone and tumbling V-cone vessels to safely decelerate to a complete stop while in the upright position.
For instance, the electro-magnetic brake can now be found on 50–cu ft V-cone tumble blenders (pictured above), which are designed for mixing bulk density–products up to 150 lbs/cu ft.
“Inside the blender, free-flowing solids are gently and intimately blended as the cone rotates,” Charles Ross explains. A 30 HP brake motor drives the tumbling vessel, while a 15 HP motor drives the intensifier bar, which “is supplied for breaking up lumps and agglomerates if necessary,” according to Charles Ross.
The blenders also include a safety gate to prevent operation of the vessel when the gate is open, as well as a 10-inch dust-tight butterfly valve where the finished product is discharged.
Available in sizes ranging from 0.25–100 cu ft, Ross tumble blenders are available with other features including a heating/cooling jacket, vacuum capability, heavy-duty design, PLC controls, and an explosion-proof motor.
Additionally, Charles Ross also recently announced its dual-shaft mixers for mixing 50-, 100-, and 200- gallon batches are now available in-stock. The mixers are equipped with two independently-driven, variable-speed agitators that “provide adjustable shear and efficient turnover of low- to high- viscosity materials including pastes, gels, suspensions, slurries, and fine dispersions up to several hundred thousand centipoise,” says Charles Ross.
