Charles Ross & Son Company -

Capable of extruding finished product into strands, the Ross VersaMix Model VMC-1 triple-shaft mixer and Model DS-1 discharge system are mounted on a common bench and supplied with one vessel for mixing and another for extrusion. An air/oil hydraulic lift raises and lowers the mixing vessel to and from the operating position. At the end of the batching procedure, finished product is transferred into the extrusion vessel positioned below the mix vessel. The extrusion can is then rolled over to the discharge system, where product is pushed out by a platen through a perforated die plate, forming strands in the desired profile.
