Unipetrol assigned the design and implementation of the new solution to its trusted supplier company INELSEV, holder of the Sivacon Siemens Technology Partner certificate. New control systems came into use at different points in the production process.
This white paper presents four advanced rotor/stator technologies for ultra-high shear mixing of fine dispersions, emulsions, and other applications beyond the capabilities of traditional single and multi-stage rotor/stator devices.
Fine-tuned flow promotion devices, suitable filters and filter placement, as well as vacuum receiver design ensure peak performance in a system.
Rotor/stator mixers specially designed to generate a powerful vacuum within the mix chamber are capable of inducting a wide variety of solids, from fine powders to friable pellets.
This white paper presents some basic best practices for efficient processing in a Ribbon Blender. The ideas discussed here are recommendations based on practical and technical experience gained by Ross over several decades as a leading supplier of Ribbon Blenders to the process industries worldwide.
Desired increases in production rates and some changes in products forced a major food processor and packager in the Northeast to consider upgrading some of its material handling and processing operations. By VAC-U-MAX
Developing a new formulation at the R&D stage can require multiple iterations to arrive at the optimal quality, functionality, cost or a combination of these and other factors.
The ideas discussed in this paper are recommendations based on Ross’ collective experience as a provider of specialty mixing equipment to the adhesive industries for over 170 years. Mixer testing and simulation trials are recommended to confirm the suitability of a specific mixing strategy.
Sticky powders present manufacturers and processors with unique material conveying challenges involving volumetric auger fillers that dispense powders, granulars, and flakes for packaging. This article demonstrates how a proprietary vacuum conveying design prevents a sticky material handling problem.
The Schenck AccuRate PureFeed® AP-300 feeder was designed specifically for sanitary processes that include the following customer driven features: quick and easy disassembly, a dual arm agitation system for maximizing material handling versatility, and an FDA compliant EPDM feed hopper that is disposable and recyclable. That means simpler, shorter cleaning cycles and virtually, no chance of cross contamination when moving from one material to another. The PureFeed® AP-300 is available in volumetric and gravimetric configurations with feed rates from 0.5 to approximately 150 Kg / hour.
Specially designed for applications requiring the maximum possible material handling and changeover flexibility along with the convenience of fast cleaning capability, K-Tron’s T35/S60 Quick Change Feeder is available in economical volumetric or high-performance loss-in-weight configurations.
Ross offers complete mixer packages for fast and efficient dispersion of bulk solids in large batches. Pictured is a 1000-gallon Dual-Shaft Mixer with Inline Solids/Liquid Injection Manifold (SLIM) and Recirculation Skid. At the heart of the process is the SLIM Technology which utilizes a specially engineered rotor/stator that generates a powerful vacuum for drawing solids into the mix chamber.
In this age of technological marvels and Internet madness, it's refreshing to see an innovation that isn't the product of an exotic new technology.
The sister companies Schenck AccuRate and MacProcess will establish a new entity called Schenck Process North America, Inc.
The Ross MegaShear Ultra-High Shear Mixer is designed for homogenizing dispersions and disintegrating large solid particles or droplets suspended in liquid. A unique inline rotor/stator design, the MegaShear’s mixing head (US Patent No. 6,241,472) turns at tip speeds well over 11,000 ft/min and generates extremely complex flow patterns without sacrificing throughput
Ross Technical Director Ken Langhorn announces the addition of a new 10-gallon PowerMix Planetary Disperser to the Ross Test & Development Center.
