ROSS recently designed a new skid system capable of mixing and pumping low to moderately viscous products. The Model VSL-400 design is a custom conical vessel on a movable skid with a progressive cavity pump rated for 10-30 gallons/minute.
The ROSS Double Planetary Mixer is available in a reverse-lift design which raises the vessel to the mixing position, rather than lowering the agitator assembly. A reverse lift facilitates improved rigidity and more uniform blade-to-vessel clearances without relying on the floor to be completely level.
ROSS inline high shear mixers from 1 through 250 HP accelerate mixing, emulsification and homogenization in both recirculation and continuous modes. A mobile skid allows these machines to be used anywhere in a plant, saving time and money by eliminating the need for multiple mixers separately dedicated to each vessel or product
Among solid-solid blending systems, the three most common types are the horizontal ribbon blender, the cone screw vertical blender and the tumble blender. Aside from level of shear or ‘gentleness’, other factors help determine which type of blender will work most efficiently in a certain application. Following are some things to consider when choosing your blender.
Multi-shaft mixers are versatile systems used in the production of food, beverage, pharmaceutical and medical products. This bulletin discusses a few equipment features commonly supplied on multi-shaft mixers intended for sanitary applications.
ROSS VersaMix Multi-Shaft Mixers incorporate a proprietary powder induction feature for efficient charging of thickeners to produce high-quality gels, creams and pastes. The VersaMix includes a three-winged anchor and a high speed disperser blade which provide a robust combination of shear and bulk flow at various stages of the mixing cycle.
