An innovative rotor/stator generator developed at Ross is capable of ultra-high shear mixing, dispersion, emulsification, homogenization and particle size reduction. Unlike other mixers that apply intense shearing action, this one does not force manufacturers to choose between a high shear rate and a high flow rate. It delivers both.
Our new mixer - the MegaShear - continues the revolution in rotor/stator design that began in the late 1980s and exploded during the following decade. For equipment users, it means that rotor/stator mixing technology now provides a cost-efficient answer for even more processing challenges. The inline design delivers both high flow and ultrahigh shear in a single pass, and it addresses other critical needs in production by providing higher throughput, improved process control, and superior product consistency.
But the MegaShear and others in the new generation of rotor/stator mixers haven't made earlier designs obsolete - and that may be the single most remarkable result of the recent revolution in rotor/stator mixing. Instead, they have extended the spectrum of products that can be produced successfully with a rotor/stator mixer. For this reason, the application and value of the newest rotor/stator design is most clearly understood in the context of the entire rotor/stator family.
