Turnkey Systems for Accelerated High-viscosity Mixing and Discharge
Ross manufactures a range of turnkey mixing and discharge stations for batching paste-like materials and high-viscosity formulations. Shown is a 2-gallon PowerMix Planetary Disperser (US Patent No. 4,697,929) and Discharge System mounted on a stainless steel workbench. The PowerMix features a saw-tooth disperser blade and a planetary stirrer which both revolve around the vessel while turning on their own axes of rotation at independently-controlled speeds. This agitator combination is ideal for handling viscous dispersions up to around 2 million cP. After the mixing cycle, the vessel is simply rolled over to the Discharge System. As the platen is lowered hydraulically into the vessel, finished product is forced out within seconds. Various size and style adaptors allow the operator to fill syringes and cartridges straight from the mix vessel. Yield is extremely maximized as normally only a thin layer of product remains on the vessel bottom.
