Mixing/dispersing system

February 1, 2011




Charles Ross & Son Company’s new mixing and dispersion system combines a Ross high-shear mixer and a specially designed PowerMix to manufacture fine dispersions. The two mixers are mounted on a common base and connected with piping to allow continuous circulation of materials until the desired dispersion is achieved. A built-in control panel permits fine control of all agitator speeds, amperage and run times. Software is available to ensure the desired results are achieved repeatedly, batch after batch. The PowerMix includes two hi-viscosity planetary stirrers, two high-speed dispersers and a scraper to wipe the sides of the vessel. The variable speed (11-110rpm) planetary blades are driven by a 1-1/2hp motor; the variable speed (900-9000rpm) high-speed dispersers are driven by a 3hp motor.
