Recommended Mixing Equipment For Milk Powders


The Ross Solids/Liquid Injection Manifold (SLIM) Technology is well proven for fast and complete dispersion of milk powders into water, cream or other liquid base. The SLIM is a unique rotor/stator mixer designed to create a powerful vacuum that draws powders sub-surface and injects them into a high shear mixing zone.

In conventional batch mixing systems, milk powders are added into the vortex of an agitated liquid. Prolonged mixing at low speeds is sometimes necessary to due to persistent lumping and excessive foaming. By comparison, the SLIM enables rapid addition of milk powders and even hard-to-disperse solids, like gums and thickeners, without subsequent lumping. Mixing is more efficient in a SLIM process because solids and liquids are combined sub-surface at precisely the point where intense agitation takes place. The formation of lumps and “fish eyes” is greatly reduced, if not eliminated. Dispersion is virtually instantaneous.
