CHARLES ROSS & SON CO.: Dual-Shaft Mixers

December 12, 2011

Dual-shaft mixers are available from this company to process pastes, gels, suspensions, slurries and other viscous formulations. Composed of two independently driven agitators working in tandem, this system is designed for heavy-duty mixing with the capability of fine-tuning shear levels and flow patterns. The high-speed disperser draws powders into the liquid batch through a powerful vortex and can rapidly disperse any lumps and agglomerates. The low-speed anchor agitator can promote bulk flow and uniform batch temperature, feeding the disperser blade with fresh product while constantly scraping the vessel surfaces.

The following features are available on the fabricated vessels and reactors:
  • Offered in many sizes, from 1-4,000 gal capacity
  • Vacuum or pressure capability
  • Interchangeable mix vessels
  • Sanitary designs include special seals, polished wetted parts and sanitary connections
  • Heating/cooling jacket
  • Temperature probes, pressure transducers and other batch sensors
  • Discharge system
  • Temperature control unit, vacuum pump and other auxiliary equipment
  • A range of control options can be supplied, from simple variable frequency drives to fully integrated PLC recipe systems.
