A high-shear mixer system, the Ross solids/liquid injection manifold accelerates the dispersion of hard-to-wet-out solids; it also eliminates floating powders in batch tanks and reduces dusting in the mixing area. It mixes powders such as fumed silica, CMC, guar gum, carbon black, carrageenan, xanthan gum, talc, pectin, flours, clays, carbomers and other rheology modifiers into liquids without a filtering step after the mixing operation. The system utilizes an engineered rotor/stator assembly that generates a vacuum to draw solids sub-surface. Powders encounter the liquid phase not only sub-surface but also under intense shear conditions within the rotor/stator assembly.
