Mixer testing simulation trials are needed to confirm the suitability of a specific mixing strategy. This white paper explores five ways to increase energy efficiency in new and existing mixing processes.
Mixing is one of the most common operations in food processing, but comes with challenges -- batch-to-batch uniformity, optimizing blend times, and most importantly: improving cleanliness.
Mixing processes vary from one application to another and there are no fix-all solutions.This white paper presents some strategies for improving commonly encountered batch mixing problems.
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.
This paper provides practical information on the efficient use of specialty mixing equipment for the preparation of low, medium and high viscosity solid-liquid mixtures under low and high shear conditions.
When selecting mixing systems, foresight for scale-up is important for long-term success. A quick shift between systems can be the difference between economical success and a financial disaster.
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, blending dense slurries has been a job for the traditional vacuum dryer with a rotating vessel. Today, processors are finding a different blender/dryer can handle the heaviest of materials more easily.
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.
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.
Whether you're considering a tumble blender for your process or shopping for a suitable piece of blending equipment, here are 10 things you should think about before the making final decision.
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 manufactures a full range of High Speed Dispersers suitable for high-volume mixing in vessels up to 6,000 gallons or larger.
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
