Mixing: Triple Shaft Mixer with Powder Induction Manifold
Dual-post triple-shaft design has been revolutionized with this feature to streamline the processing of substantial powder phases.
The latest 600-gal Ross VersaMix Model VM-600 is capable of high speed subsurface powder induction with a proprietary Solids/Liquid Injection Manifold (SLIM).
SLIM incorporates powder or liquid phases directly into the rotor-stator mix head, causing instant wet out as it rotates at 3600 rpm. The classic dual-post triple-shaft design has been revolutionized with this feature to streamline the processing of substantial powder phases.
The robust anchor agitator moves product from the high shear rotor stator head to a high-speed dispersing head, which deagglomerates any remaining fisheyes.
Used to quickly mix large batches throughout the process industries, the SLIM feature accelerates loading phases exponentially.
This design is available from laboratory sizes upwards of 4000 gal.
Here’s a guide to specifying screws and barrels that will last under conditions that will chew up standard equipment.
Newer specialty slip masterbatches go beyond traditional capabilities to provide greater thermal stability, reliability, and ability to hold COF steady during laminating.
Start by assessing the status quo, as well as defining future needs. Develop a five-year projection of materials and required capacities. Short-term solutions very often prove to be more expensive and less satisfactory after a period of time. Most of all, know your options.
