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, manufacturer of industrial mixing equipment, has appointed Christine Banaszek as its new Sales Manager.
Ross Vice President of Corporate Operations Joseph Martorana is proud to announce the 10th-year anniversary of Ross Process Equipment (RPE), the US-headquartered mixer manufacturer’s operations in Pune, India. RPE produces Tumble Blenders, Ribbon Blenders, Planetary Mixers, Multi-Shaft Mixers, High Speed Dispersers, High Shear Mixers, as well as pressure vessels, tanks and other custom-fabricated equipment.
Companies are reevaluating mixing processes, looking for ways to lower cost, boost production capacity, and improve quality. This article will explain how high shear mixing can help achieve these goals.
Offering over 175 years of experience in designing and building process equipment, Ross is uniquely equipped to accept a wide range of custom fabrication projects – from simple jacketed vessels and agitated tanks to pressurized reactors and large tank farms.
The Ross VersaMix is a multi-shaft mixer designed for viscous applications requiring a high level of accuracy and batch-to-batch consistency.
Ross VersaMix Multi-Shaft Mixers designed for robust large-scale production enable reliable and repeatable batch processing of high-volume viscous applications such as solid-liquid dispersions, thickened emulsions, suspensions, pastes and gels. As a multi-agitator system, the VersaMix is easily adaptable for mixing at low, intermediate and high shear levels, or any combination necessary for powder wet-out, deagglomeration, emulsification, homogenization, heating/cooling and deaeration.
This application presents some helpful techniques and design considerations for maximizing blending efficiency to deliver highly-accurate and repeatable mixing of solid-solid and solid-liquid applications.
Charles Ross & Son Company Vice President of Corporate Operations Joseph Martorana announced the successful completion of the largest Ross manufacturing facility to date. Ross Wuxi Equipment, the company’s wholly-owned subsidiary in China, officially moved into its new 250,000-sq.ft. home on December 31, 2016, according to General Manager George Lu.
Ross Multi-Shaft Mixers are ideal for large-scale processing of pastes, gels, dispersions, suspensions and slurries from low to high viscosity.
Ross introduces the HSM-703XC, a new and improved model of the 10HP X-Series Ultra-High Shear Mixer.
For years, blending dense slurries has been a job for the traditional vacuum dryer with a rotating vessel. Today, processors are finding a different blender/dryer can handle the heaviest of materials more easily.
Ross Dual-Shaft Mixers enable efficient powder dispersion and convenient batch temperature control in the manufacture of low to high viscosity formulations. Two heavy-duty independently-driven agitators, a high speed disperser and a two-wing anchor, deliver a wide range of shear levels and flow patterns that can adapt to the varying rheologies of solutions, pastes, gels, suspensions and slurries all throughout the mixing cycle.
Ross Storage Vessels are custom-built to meet exact specifications for pressure, temperature, material of construction, cover design, discharge assembly and access ports.
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.
