CHARLES ROSS & SON CO.: Portable High-Shear Mixing System
Charles Ross & Son Co. recently introduced a new portable high-shear mixing system designed for powder dispersion into liquid, emulsification and homogenization in a closed, temperature-controlled vessel. Shown is a 200-L portable high-shear mixing system featuring stainless steel 316L wetted parts, sight/charge ports, ASME dimpled jacket rated for 85 psig, chloride-free insulation with stainless steel sheathing, high accuracy weighing scale, and NEMA 4X gas-purged controls.
On the dished top cover, each 3-in. tri-clover port reportedly includes a dip tube extending into the vessel for suctioning and transferring finished product, as well as for incorporating liquid ingredients. The dip tubes are fully removable for replacement with a sanitary cap on the cover. An 8-in. charge port is also supplied for solids addition into the batch.
The high-shear mixer is mounted on the cover in a vapor-tight sealing arrangement. Its four-blade rotor reportedly runs up to 3,600 rpm within a close tolerance slotted stator, delivering mechanical and hydraulic shear. The mixer is driven by a 5-HP stainless steel, wash down-duty explosion-proof motor. The entire portable system is easily moved from one room to another and can be operated in a Class 1 Div1 hazardous location.
