Ross Multi-Shaft Mixers supplied with interchangeable mixing vessels now come with an optional special cover equipped with propeller blades to ensure product uniformity during storage and discharge.
Shown are 15-gallon Multi-Shaft Mixers featuring a three-wing anchor agitator, high speed disperser and rotor/stator emulsifier. Mounted on the mixer cover is a high-precision inline viscometer with built-in temperature sensor for measuring non-Newtonian shear-thinning materials up to 100,000 centipoise. Designed for vacuum operation up to 29.5” Hg, the mixer includes a rotary vane vacuum pump supplied with 5-micron particle filter and trap.
After each mixing cycle, the vessel containing finished product is simply pulled from under the mixer and fitted with a custom cover while another vessel is rolled into the mixing position. This semi-continuous operation maximizes both machine and labor utilization. The cover for the holding tank is secured via quick acting clamps and suitable for 2psi inert gas purge. A ½ HP impeller agitator is mounted to a tri-clamp port on the cover and pre-wired to a variable frequency drive for convenient operation.
