New mixing and dispersion system works with fine dispersions
Charles Ross & Son Company has introduced a new mixing and dispersion system that combines a Ross High Shear Mixer and the PowerMix for use in manufacturing fine dispersions.
The company says 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 also available to help ensure that the desired results are achieved 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 (11-110 rpm) planetary blades are driven by a 1-1/2 HP motor and the variable speed (900-9000 rpm) high speed dispersers by a 3 HP motor. The separate high shear rotor-stator mixer is driven by a 1 HP variable speed motor, for operation up to 10,000 rpm.
