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.
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.
This application note offers tips for efficiently containing powders in a ribbon blender to ensure operator safety, prevent cross-contamination and promote easy clean up.
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 SysCon, a worldwide supplier of process control and automation systems, builds UL-rated stainless steel control panels of virtually any size or complexity.
Ross manufactures a wide range of bench-top mixers for R&D and pilot-scale requirements, with many selections for multi-viscosity processing, dry solid-solid blending, powder wet-out, inline (continuous) mixing, agitated vacuum drying, homogenization, emulsification and particle size reduction/wet milling.
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 new line of Model 42C Cylindrical Ribbon Blenders designed to mix dry powders, wet granulations and paste-like materials with densities up to 100 lb/cu.ft. Available in many sizes from 1/2 to 1,000 cu.ft. working capacity, Cylindrical Ribbon Blenders can be built for atmospheric, full vacuum or internal pressure operation. A full range of standard, heavy-duty and sanitary models are offered.
Providing one stop fabrication service to manufacturers throughout the process industries, Ross, a world leader in mixing and blending technology, designs and builds storage tanks, pressure vessels and reactors for virtually any process or application.
Ross Technical Director Ken Langhorn announces the addition of a new 10-gallon PowerMix Planetary Disperser to the Ross Test & Development Center.
Ross manufactures a full range of High Speed Dispersers suitable for high-volume mixing in vessels up to 6,000 gallons or larger.
Since introducing the world’s first change can mixer over 100 years ago, Ross recently continues to innovate and develop new solutions in mixing.
