Dual-Shaft Mixers for Processing Viscous Formulations

August 30, 2011
Ross Dual-Shaft Mixers are ideal for processing pastes, gels, suspensions, slurries and other viscous formulations. Composed of two independently-driven agitators working in tandem, this system is designed for heavy-duty mixing with the capability of fine-tuning shear levels and flow patterns. The high speed disperser draws powders into the liquid batch through a powerful vortex and rapidly disperses any lumps and agglomerates. The low speed anchor agitator promotes bulk flow and uniform batch temperature, “feeding” the disperser blade with fresh product while constantly scraping the vessel surfaces.
