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.
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.
This white paper presents an overview of mixing technologies employed in the dispersion of nano-sized solid particles into liquid. By Christine Banaszek
Whether it’s a start-up scaling up production to meet demand for a new technology that is taking hold in the marketplace, or established manufacturers developing new product offerings, the ability to react quickly to changes in demand depends greatly on a highly-efficient production process. This case study shows how one company introduced an innovative pneumatic conveyor to load and dispense its blended product into packaging. This endeavor led to reduced lead time, physical efforts, and dust from its loading operations.

The inability to uniformly disperse powders into a liquid batch within a practical amount of time is an all-too-common mixing problem that impacts productivity, labor costs, and power consumption. This white paper explores five tips for dispersing powders into liquid more efficiently.
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.
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 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
