Dual-shaft mixer

February 7, 2013

dual shift mixer charles ross and son companyUsed for the high-volume and high-throughput injection of powders, pellets or granules in large batches, the Ross 1,000-gal. dual-shaft mixer with inline solids/liquid injection manifold (SLIM) and recirculation skid utilizes a specially engineered rotor/stator that generates a powerful vacuum to draw solids into the mix chamber. Bulk solids are charged into the SLIM feed hopper while liquids are introduced into the batch mixer. The mixer recirculates the liquid; when the solids inlet valve is opened, the rotor draws powders into the incoming liquid stream and expels the resulting dispersion through the stator openings at high velocity. As the product thickens, the agitators are engaged to incorporate minor ingredients and finish the mixture.
