CHARLES ROSS & SON CO.: Multi-Shaft Mixer

April 19, 2011

The new VersaMix multi-shaft mixer has reportedly been proven for the processing of various viscous formulations in the adhesives and sealants industry. The mixer design comprises three independently driven agitators working in tandem. The high-speed disperser quickly draws powders into the liquid batch through a powerful vortex. The rotor/stator carries out a number of tasks, depending on the product being mixed; it can break down agglomerates, accelerate homogenization, or prepare fine droplets in an emulsion. The low-speed anchor can promote bulk flow and uniform batch temperature while scraping the vessel sidewalls and bottom.

Optional features include vacuum capability, clean-in-place spray nozzles, temperature probes, interchangeable jacketed mix vessels, powder induction capability (available on special design rotor/stators), sight/charge ports, control panels and PLC systems.
