Ross serves the requirements of the Chemical Process Industries, in virtually every industrialized country around the world. We have the experience and production capacity that no other manufacturer of specialty mixing and blending equipment can match. In the USA alone, we operate five plants, an analytical laboratory and a vigorous R&D program. Overseas, Ross equipment is being built in our own factories in China and India, and manufactured under license in other counties. Typical applications include mixing, blending, particle size reduction, emulsification, homogenization, powder induction, vacuum processing and more.
Specifications that define a mixer built for a chemical industry application reflect a combination of industry standards, and the mixing functions needed for that particular application. A sub-micron emulsion, for example, requires high-shear agitation, vacuum and usually a heat-transfer system. The size of the mixer is determined by the throughput required. To guard against batch-to-batch contamination, CIP and SIP capabilities are available, along with such devices as air-purged seals and custom designed discharge valves. To ensure a high degree of repeatability and to document the production of every batch, we often add a control system with data-logging capability.
The close connection between specific performance requirements and equipment features is the logical starting point for equipment design. But today, the challenge of specifying and designing a high-performance mixer is more than a two-dimensional process. We regularly address performance needs that are much broader than one particular mixing application. In fact, we often custom design equipment to meet production needs that have not yet been imagined.

Charles Ross & Son Company Vice President of Corporate Operations Joseph Martorana announced the successful completion of the largest Ross manufacturing facility to date. Ross Wuxi Equipment, the company’s wholly-owned subsidiary in China, officially moved into its new 250,000-sq.ft. home on December 31, 2016, according to General Manager George Lu.
Ross recently shipped 49 High Speed Dispersers to a global manufacturer of paints, coatings and chemicals.
Ross Multi-Shaft Mixers are ideal for large-scale processing of pastes, gels, dispersions, suspensions and slurries from low to high viscosity.
Ross introduces the HSM-703XC, a new and improved model of the 10HP X-Series Ultra-High Shear Mixer.
For years, the challenge of blending extremely dense slurries, then drying the batch to powder form, has been a job for the traditional vacuum dryer with a rotating vessel. Today, processors are finding a completely different kind of blender/dryer can handle the heaviest of materials more easily. This new solution is based aggressive blending combined with carefully controlled heat and vacuum.
Ross Vertical Blender/Dryers are ideal for blending and drying ceramic materials whether in powder or slurry form.
Vacuum-capable Vertical Blender/Dryers are proven equipment for drying plastic resins.
Different types of mixing equipment are utilized in the various stages of detergent production.
Multi-Shaft Mixers capable of bulk agitation, high-speed powder wet-out and efficient heat transfer are ideal equipment for floor coatings based on epoxy, urethane, acrylic or hybrid chemistries.
A wide range of polishing and finishing compounds are formulated for different surfaces and applications.
Ribbon Blenders are well-proven equipment used in batch production of feeds and fertilizers. Ingredients are loaded into the U-shaped trough and mixed by a horizontal solid-shaft agitator consisting of inner and outer helical ribbons.
Ross Dual-Shaft Mixers enable efficient powder dispersion and convenient batch temperature control in the manufacture of low to high viscosity formulations. Two heavy-duty independently-driven agitators, a high speed disperser and a two-wing anchor, deliver a wide range of shear levels and flow patterns that can adapt to the varying rheologies of solutions, pastes, gels, suspensions and slurries all throughout the mixing cycle.
Ross Storage Vessels are custom-built to meet exact specifications for pressure, temperature, material of construction, cover design, discharge assembly and access ports.
Ross Ribbon Blenders are well proven in the manufacture of detergents and intermediate compositions. Granular and powdered raw materials are loaded into the U-shaped trough and mixed by a horizontal solid-shaft agitator consisting of inner and outer helical ribbons.
