This white paper provides an overview of the different types of high speed mixers utilized in the manufacture of paints, inks and coatings. These machines accomplish a range of processing objectives which sometimes overlap.
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.
Uniformly dispersing powders into a liquid batch in a practical amount of time is a common problem for F&B manufacturers. This white paper explores five tips for dispersing powders more efficiently.
In this installation, materials are received in 50-pound bags and semi-bulk bags and are security screened for foreign objects while being conveyed to a weigh hopper, where they are automatically hatched in predetermined weights and discharged into process drums.
With today's economic pressures, more plant managers and others charged with conveying powders, granular items, and flakes for packaging are adopting the automatic operation of vacuum conveying and packaging equipment as standards to hit critical price points for market success.
When automating a dry bulk ingredient addition into a manual process, it can be difficult to know where to begin. But, before looking at equipment, there are several key factors that need to be considered.
Without concrete, our modern life is not conceivable. It is a versatile construction material – on land, on water, and when necessary even at dizzying heights. The base material cement is a decisive factor in the use of concrete, for example for roads, bridges, tunnels and towers – the construction material concrete has many potential applications and guarantees that construction components and structures are highly durable. To continue its success, a cement plant turned to modern weighing technology for its production processes.
A polymer services company installs several load-cell-based loss-in-weight feeders to automate its ingredient-feeding process and eliminate problems caused by manually handling and feeding the ingredients. By Schenck AccuRate
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.
The SacMaster® is a versatile and safe bulk bag unloading system designed specifically to include important features and functions identified by bulk bag manufacturers and users in multiple industries. Bag tensioning, hoist or forklift loading, height adjustability and the patented “Posi-Flow” agitation system, which fluidizes even the most compacted materials make SacMaster® the right choice for unloading starch, lime, aluminum dioxide, pigments, plastic pellets, and a wide range of other bulk materials.
Ross Technical Director Ken Langhorn announces the addition of a new 10-gallon PowerMix Planetary Disperser to the Ross Test & Development Center.
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.
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
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.
