Charles Ross and Son Co. has announced the launch of a new Dual-Shaft VersaMix design that incorporates a special helical agitator and high-speed dispersion blade. This combination of agitators provides improved axial and radial turnover of the materials being mixed while applying high shear to the product. The helical agitator is designed for bi-directional operation. Teflon scraper assemblies are attached to the outside of the anchor agitator to facilitate scraping of the sides and bottom of the vessel when operating in either the forward or reverse direction. The VersaMix can also incorporate a High Shear Rotor-Stator mixer.
