Ross serves the requirements of the Food Industry, in virtually every industrialized country around the world. We have the experience and production capacity that no other manufacturer of specialty mixing and blending equipment can match. In the USA alone, we operate five plants, an analytical laboratory and a vigorous R&D program. Overseas, Ross equipment is being built in our own factories in China and India, and manufactured under license in other counties. Typical applications include mixing, blending, particle size reduction, emulsification, homogenization, powder induction, vacuum processing and more.
Specifications that define a mixer built for a food industry application reflect a combination of industry standards, and the mixing functions needed for that particular application. A sub-micron emulsion, for example, requires high-shear agitation, vacuum and usually a heat-transfer system. The size of the mixer is determined by the throughput required. To guard against batch-to-batch contamination, CIP and SIP capabilities are available, along with such devices as air-purged seals and custom designed discharge valves. To ensure a high degree of repeatability, and to document the production of every batch, we often add a control system with data-logging capability.
The close connection between specific performance requirements and equipment features is the logical starting point for equipment design. But today, the challenge of specifying and designing a high-performance mixer is more than a two-dimensional process. We regularly address performance needs that are much broader than one particular mixing application. In fact, we often custom design equipment to meet production needs that have not yet been imagined.

Charles Ross & Son Company, a leading manufacturer of specialty mixing, blending, drying and dispersion equipment, is proud to announce the opening of its online store.
Whether you're considering a tumble blender for your process or shopping for a suitable piece of blending equipment, here are 10 things you should think about before the making final decision.
Mixer testing simulation trials are needed to confirm the suitability of a specific mixing strategy. This white paper explores five ways to increase energy efficiency in new and existing mixing processes.
Mixing is one of the most common operations in food processing, but comes with challenges -- batch-to-batch uniformity, optimizing blend times, and most importantly: improving cleanliness.
Mixing processes vary from one application to another and there are no fix-all solutions.This white paper presents some strategies for improving commonly encountered batch mixing problems.
Uniformly dispersing powders into a liquid batch in a practical amount of time is a common problem for F&B manufacturers. This white paper explores five tips for dispersing powders more efficiently.
Purchase of new mixing equipment is typically not a hasty event. As with any capital investment, the purchase of a new mixing system ideally requires time and research.
This paper provides practical information on the efficient use of specialty mixing equipment for the preparation of low, medium and high viscosity solid-liquid mixtures under low and high shear conditions.
When selecting mixing systems, foresight for scale-up is important for long-term success. A quick shift between systems can be the difference between economical success and a financial disaster.
The Ross line of VersaMix Multi-Shaft Mixers are ideal for processing medium to high-viscosity applications up to several hundred thousand centipoise including many slurries, pastes, gels and suspensions.
The most well-equipped testing facility in the specialty mixing industry, the Ross Test & Development Center announces the addition of an advanced planetary mixer now available for no-charge demonstrations. The new 4-gallon Planetary Dual Disperser (Model PDDM-4) is equipped with two High Viscosity Blades and two High Speed Dispersers; all four agitators rotate on their own axes while orbiting the vessel, ensuring rapid powder wet-out and deagglomeration. It is designed for vacuum operation and includes a jacketed mix vessel. Ideal for mixing thick slurries and highly-filled pastes, the PDDM delivers excellent dispersion and uniformity throughout a wide viscosity range up to around 2 million centipoise.
