Ross Ships New Dual Shaft Mixer Design


Ross recently shipped a new Dual-Shaft VersaMix design incorporating a special helical agitator and high-speed dispersion blade.

This combination of agitators provides improved axial and radial turnover of the materials being mixed, as applying high shear to the product. This feature is especially useful for:

  1. Viscous materials that have poor flow qualities
  2. The addition of powders that have a tendency to float on the surface
  3. When heat transfer of the batch constituents is important

The helical agitator is designed for bi-directional operation. Teflon scraper assemblies are attached to the outside of the anchor agitator to facilitate scraping of the sides and bottom of the vessel, when operating in either the forward or reverse direction. The VersaMix can also incorporate a High Shear Rotor-Stator Mixer. The Model VMC-100 shown includes an air/oil lift that raises the agitators out of the mix vessel.

This change can model is manufactured in several sizes ranging from 1 through 750 gallons. Many optional features including vacuum construction, jackets for heating or cooling, charge ports, controls, etc. are available as needed. Testing is available at Ross on a no-charge basis.
