Ross updates triple-shaft mixer design to further streamline powder processing

December 20, 2019

The 600-gallon Ross VersaMix Model VM-600 can achieve high-speed subsurface powder induction and comes complete with a proprietary Ross Solids/Liquid Injection Manifold (SLIM).

Charles Ross & Son Co. (Hauppauge, NY) has unveiled its latest triple-shaft mixer. The 600-gallon Ross VersaMix Model VM-600 can achieve high-speed subsurface powder induction and comes complete with a proprietary Ross Solids/Liquid Injection Manifold (SLIM). This manifold incorporates powder or liquid phases directly into the rotor-stator mix head, causing instant wet out as it rotates at 3,600 RPM. This updated design streamlines the processing of substantial powder phases, the company says.

The company adds that “the robust anchor agitator moves product from the high-shear rotor-stator head to a high-speed dispersing head, which deagglomerates any remaining fisheyes. Used to quickly mix large batches throughout the process industries, the SLIM feature accelerates loading phases exceptionally.” Ross can provide this design on equipment ranging from laboratory sizes all the way to equipment handling 4,000 gallons or more.
