Mixing: Skid-Mounted Powder Induction & Mixing System
Rotor/stator generates a powerful vacuum without external pumps.
The Model HSM-405SC-25 from Ross is a new inline high shear rotor/stator mixing system incorporating Solids/Liquid Injection Manifold (SLIM) Technology. Unlike conventional eductors, the SLIM rotor/stator generates a powerful vacuum without external pumps, and pulls powders directly into the mix chamber, promoting instantaneous wet out under high shear conditions. Mounted on a multipurpose skid with load cells, actuated valves and level switches, the pictured HSM-405SC-25 recirculates into a 400-g jacketed tank and is controlled from a 15-in. industrial PC with Windows.
When it comes to vacuum conveying systems for plastics processing, custom powder handling solutions are not always required. Pre-engineered, turnkey solutions can be a perfect option for powders and bulk solids in a wide range of industries.
