Mixing skid system

April 7, 2014

the Ross Solids/Liquid Injection Manifold automated powder feeding and high-speed mixing skid systemDesigned for automatic ingredient additions and mixing, the Ross Solids/Liquid Injection Manifold automated powder feeding and high-speed mixing skid system is piped to a 400-gallon jacketed tank and mounted on a compact skid. Flow meters, load cells, solenoid valves, level sensors and thermocouples are integrated into a PLC recipe control panel. The system pumps liquid from the tank while simultaneously drawing powders from a stainless steel hopper. As the liquid stream enters the rotor/stator assembly, it immediately encounters the powder injection at the high-shear zone. The resulting mixture is expelled through the stator openings at high velocity and recirculated back into the tank.
