Sanitary Mixer and Power Mix

January 10, 2006


Sanitary Mixer and Power Mix Offered by Ross
l Designed for multiple mixing requirements such as high-speed dispersion, emulsification, particle-size reduction and homogenization, the Ross VersaMix Triple Shaft Mixer is now available with the company’s SLIM System (Solid/Liquid Injection Manifold).
The incorporation of this high-speed powder induction technology adds to the VersaMix’s flexibility and broadens its applicability to various cosmetic and pharmaceutical formulations.
The SLIM system injects materials directly into the rotor/stator agitator of the VersaMix. The strong vacuum force above the high shear mixer sucks in powders or liquids for immediate dispersion or emulsification. Because wet-out is virtually instant, the mixing time is decreased and the volume of air-borne particles resulting from powder dusting is minimized, according to Ross.
The specially designed rotor and lower flange enable direct connection of a tube to a hopper or wand arrangement. The SLIM system works well under ambient or vacuum conditions. Under vacuum, the pressure between the vessel’s interior and surroundings creates a supplemental driving force for powder or liquid induction. In addition, incorporating ingredients under vacuum helps maintain an air-free mixture, eliminating the need for lengthy post-process deaeration steps.
The product is available in many sizes, from a 0.5 gallon laboratory unit, through a 750-gallon production mode. It offers numerous optional features, such as a wide range of construction materials, vacuum and pressure designs, jackets to heat or cool, wall scrapers and sanitary construction.
