Dual-shaft mixers

October 1, 2011




Engineered for processing pastes, gels, suspensions, slurries and other viscous formulations, Ross dual-shaft mixers are composed of 2 independently driven agitators working in tandem. A high-speed disperser draws powders into the liquid batch through a vortex and disperses any lumps and agglomerates, while a low-speed anchor agitator promotes bulk flow and uniform batch temperature, feeding the disperser blade with fresh product while constantly scraping the vessel surfaces. Sanitary designs include special seals, polished wetted parts and sanitary connections. A range of control options are available, from simple variable frequency drives to fully integrated PLC recipe systems.
