CHARLES ROSS & SON CO.: Mixing System
The PowerMix includes two high-viscosity planetary stirrers, two high-speed dispersers and a scraper to wipe the sides of the vessel. The variable-speed (11-110 rpm) planetary blades are driven by a 1 1/2 HP motor and the variable-speed (900-9000 rpm) high-speed dispersers by a 3 HP motor. The separate high-shear rotor-stator mixer is driven by a 1 HP variable speed motor for operation up to 10,000 rpm.
All wetted parts of the system are constructed of 304-stainless steel and finished to a 320-grit finish to allow for easy cleanup between batches. The system is built for vacuum operation to 29.5 in. Hg and includes a vacuum pump. The mix vessel is jacketed for 50 psig and includes a thermocouple to monitor batch temperature. A discharge valve is provided to discharge the materials on completion of the batch. Additional sizes are available from the 2-gal design to 750-gal production sizes.
