This white paper presents some ideas for selecting the right inline high shear mixer for your process based on a company’s collective experience as a mixing equipment provider to process industries.
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.
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.
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
Ross introduces a Laboratory High Viscosity Disperser featuring interchangeable bow-tie and paddle blades driven by a 2HP explosion-proof, VFD-capable motor. Suitable for use with standard 5-gallon pails, this bench-top mixer is ideal for thorough blending of fluids with very different viscosities, quickly resuspending dense solids that have settled during transport or storage, preparing thick paste-like formulations and other similar applications.
Charles Ross & Son Company, a global supplier of specialty mixing equipment announced the release of its new white paper “High Speed Mixers for Paints, Inks & Coatings”. The paper, which can be accessed for free from the main Ross website www.mixers.com, examines different mixing technologies utilized for powder wet-out, dispersion, particle size reduction, high-viscosity mixing and other processing objectives.
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.
