Breakdown of organic wastes entering a wastewater treatment plant is accomplished by using a biomass or blend of beneficial microscopic organisms, bacteria, and solids.
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.
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.
There are many factors to consider for proper aeration basin control. If one or several of these factors go out of balance, the whole system suffers and becomes inefficient.
FMC makes ingredients for consumer products such as toothpaste, baking mixes, and other food products. The plant makes carrageenan out of seaweed using a sequence of chemical processing steps that starts with soaking the seaweed at 200°F.
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.
The Ribbon Blender is well-proven technology for fast and cost-effective blending of powders. One important safety consideration surrounding this operation is the containment of powders during the blending cycle as well as during transport to and from the blender. This application note offers considerations to prevent product migration with your Ribbon Blender.
Throughout the process industries, high speed mixers are commonly used for a number of objectives including powder wet-out and dispersion, solubilization, particle size reduction and homogenization.
Mixing challenges throughout the process industries are heightened as the viscosity and complexity of the mixture rises. This webinar reviews the numerous options that are available to help select the most efficient mixer for a users requirements.
Dry blenders are typically described as being of horizontal, vertical or tumbling designs. On the surface it would seem that each can be used for the same application, but subtle differences usually make one preferable over another. This webinar helps to narrow the choice of the unit for a particular production requirement.
Ross introduces several new features on its Ribbon Blender models including low-maintenance gasket-free covers, custom bag dump station with safety grating, clamshell coupling for quick agitator removal, vacuum and pressure-rated blenders with reinforced troughs, heavy-duty models for dense materials, bottom discharge extruder assembly and end wall scrapers.
Ross introduces new Double Planetary Mixers with a slightly tilted configuration for more effective and complete discharge of flowable products. Double Planetary Mixers are versatile equipment used in the preparation of pastes and gels, as well as granulations and free-flowing dried powder blends.
Fully-equipped Ross V-Cone and Double Cone Tumble Blenders are now available from stock or with fast delivery times.
Charles Ross & Son Company, a manufacturer of specialty mixing, blending, drying and dispersion equipment, recently completed its 3000th Double Planetary Mixer.
Charles Ross & Son Company now offers a variety of surface treatments, coatings and alternative materials on its full range of mixing, blending, drying and dispersion equipment for the processing of high-purity, sensitive, corrosive or abrasive products.
