ROSS: Triple Shaft Mixer

Designed for multiple mixing requirements, such as high-speed dispersion, emulsification, particle-size reduction and homogenization, the Ross VersaMix Triple Shaft Mixer is now available with a Solid/Liquid Injection Manifold (S.L.I.M.™) system. The incorporation of this high-speed powder-induction technology adds to the VersaMix's flexibility and broadens its applicability for various formulations. When introducing solids of low surface energy, like fumed silica, alginates and CMC, agglomerates can form when using top-entry, slow-speed mixers such as propellers or turbines. In some cases, this lumping event is irreversible; subsequent shearing will not eliminate the `fish eyes' that have formed, restricting plant operators to very slow addition of powders, which hurts production throughput. Other powders will simply resist wet-out and float on the liquid surface for hours.

For more information, call (800) 243-ROSS or e-mail sales@mixers.com.
