Dual-shaft mixer

October 27, 2005




Model CDA 100 dual-shaft mixer and discharge system from Charles Ross & Son is used in the production of viscous, non-flowing products. The mixer combines a three-wing anchor with Teflon scrapers and a conventional disc-type, high-speed disperser. Each of the agitators is independently driven and set up for variable speed operation. The mixer also includes a vacuum cover with sight/charge ports and two vacuum and jacketed mix vessels with discharge valves in the bottom. The discharge system automatically raises the mix vessel off the floor, and pushes the viscous product out through the bottom discharge valve, directly into a packaging operation or to a post-mixing storage/holding vessel.
