The latest 600-gal Ross VersaMix model VM-600 is reportedly capable of high-speed subsurface powder induction with the proprietary Ross solids/liquid injection manifold (SLIM). According to Ross, SLIM incorporates powder or liquid phases directly into the rotor-stator mix head, causing instant wet-out as it rotates at 3,600 rpm.
Ross reports that the classic dual-post triple-shaft design has been updated with this feature to streamline the processing of substantial powder phases. The anchor agitator moves product from the high-shear rotor stator head to a high-speed dispersing head, which deagglomerates any remaining fisheyes. Used to quickly mix large batches throughout the process industries, the SLIM feature accelerates loading phases. This design is available from laboratory sizes to 4,000 gal.
