Multishaft Mixer Features Three Independently Driven Agitators
Charles Ross & Sons' new VersaMix multishaft mixer handles processing pastes, gels, slurries and other viscous formulations.
This mixer design is composed of three independently driven agitators working in tandem. The high-speed disperser draws powders into the liquid batch through a vortex. The rotor/stator carries out a number of tasks depending on the product being mixed. It can break down agglomerates, accelerate homogenization or prepare fine droplets in an emulsion. The low-speed anchor promotes bulk flow and uniform batch temperature while scraping the vessel sidewalls and bottom.
Optional features include vacuum-capability, clean-in-place spray nozzles, temperature probes, interchangeable jacketed mix vessels, powder induction capability (available on special design rotor/stators), sight/charge ports, control panels and PLC systems. They are offered in many sizes from 1- to 4,000-gallons capacity. Units are available for no-charge mixing trials at the Ross Test & Development Center. Trial/rental units are also in stock.
