A new 500-gal VersaMix Model VMC-500 multi-shaft mixer from Charles R. Ross & Son Co., Hauppauge, N.Y., is equipped with a custom combination of independently driven agitators. The anchor agitator with helical flights and the screw-auger agitator work in tandem to promote efficient product turnover while bringing air pockets to the surface. Two saw-tooth, high-speed disperser blades impart shear for fast powder wetout and thorough deagglomeration.

This VMC-500 also features air casters for convenient mobility, PLC recipe controls with data-acquisition capabilities, and a purged, explosion-proof operator station.

The Ross VersaMix line is aimed at processing medium to high-viscosity materials of up to several hundred thousand centipoise, including slurries, pastes, gels and suspensions.
