This company manufactures a range of turnkey mixing and discharge stations for batching paste-like materials and high-viscosity formulations. The company’s multi-shaft ROSS Turnkey Mixing and Discharge Stationsmixers, planetary dispersers and double planetary mixers are offered with an optional platen-style discharge system designed for non-flowable, sticky or heavy mixtures. With push-button simplicity, the system can automatically discharge a batch by lowering a precisely machined platen into the vessel. An O-ring around the platen rides against the vessel sidewalls to wipe the surfaces clean. Product is pushed out through the bottom of the vessel or through a port on the platen.

Shown is a 2-gal PowerMix planetary disperser and discharge system mounted on a stainless steel workbench. The PowerMix features a saw-tooth disperser blade and a planetary stirrer, which both revolve around the vessel while turning on their own axes of rotation at independently controlled speeds. This agitator combination is reportedly ideal for handling viscous dispersions up to around 2 million cP. After the mixing cycle, the vessel is rolled over to the discharge system. As the platen is hydraulically lowered into the vessel, finished product is forced out, reportedly within seconds. Various size and style adaptors can allow the operator to fill syringes and cartridges straight from the mix vessel.
