ROSS: Mixers and Dispersers
This company offers multi-shaft mixers, double planetary mixers and planetary dispersers with up to 5-gal capacities. The mixers can be supplied with an optional workbench that can accommodate a discharge system, heater/cooler, vacuum pump and other accessories. These custom mixing stations include leveling mounts or caster wheels for mobility.
Pictured is a 1-quart double planetary mixer equipped with an air/oil hydraulic lift for raising and lowering the mix can to and from the operating position. It has two sets of interchangeable planetary agitators, helical high-viscosity stirrers and the classic rectangular blades. Product contact parts are stainless steel type 316 polished to 150-grit finish. Rated for vacuum up to 29.5-inHg, the mixer reportedly features glass sight/charge ports and a tank light, heating/cooling jacket, and a thermocouple for measuring product temperature. An open bath hot water heater is positioned on the lower shelf of the workbench, next to a vacuum pump that is plumbed to mixer and pre-wired to the mixer’s control panel. After each mixing cycle, the vessel can be rolled over to a high-pressure follower plate discharge system for direct transfer of the finished product into cartridges or other containers.
