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.
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.
Ross Technical Director Ken Langhorn announces the addition of a new 10-gallon PowerMix Planetary Disperser to the Ross Test & Development Center.
The Ross Interfacial Surface Generator (ISG) is a patented Static Mixer (US Patent No. 3404869) designed for laminar flow processes such as blending a minor component into a viscous stream.
Whether you are seriously considering a tumble blender for your process or still shopping for a suitable piece of blending equipment, here are 10 basic things you should know and think about before the making final decision.
Following its largest inventory expansion to date, Charles Ross & Son Company announces that over 80 Ribbon Blenders, sized for different working volumes and bulk densities, are now available from stock.
Charles Ross & Son Company, a manufacturer of mixing, blending, drying and dispersion equipment since 1842, accepts custom fabrication projects for virtually any application.
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.
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.
Since introducing the world’s first change can mixer over 100 years ago, Ross recently continues to innovate and develop new solutions in mixing.
