The Ross VersaMix multi-shaft mixer

The Ross VersaMix multi-shaft mixer is ideal for mixing pastes, creams, and gel-type products, with the capabilities of powder dispersion, emulsification, dissolution, deagglomeration, homogenization, heating/cooling, and deaeration. All these functions are achieved in a closed system, without the need for any transfer steps.

Shown is a 10-gal VersaMix Model VMC-10 rated for 29.5 in. Hg vacuum up to 15 psi internal pressure. Its three-wing anchor (3HP), high-speed disperser (3HP), and high shear rotor/stator (3HP) operate independently at different speed ranges to deliver uniformity in low- to high-viscosity conditions up to several hundred thousand centipoise.

All product contact surfaces are stainless steel type 316L polished to 180 grit finish; elastomers are EPDM and Chemraz (many other options are available to ensure product and process compatibility).

The mixer cover includes multiple ports for charging raw materials and installation of a vacuum/pressure transmitter, thermoprobe, and tank light. It mates with a jacketed cone-bottom vessel that is designed for 100% discharge through a flush diaphragm valve and easy portability. A 23-in. clearance from the valve outlet to the floor allows operators to position a bucket under the vessel to catch finished product after the mixing cycle.

Ross multi-shaft mixers are offered in many models from one- through 4000-gal capacity.
