Ross introduces a new planetary disperser and discharge system turnkey package that is designed for high-viscosity, multi-stage mixing requirements. The Ross PowerMix consists of a stirrer blade and a saw-tooth disperser, both of which rotate on their respective axes at different speeds while orbiting the mix vessel. The high-speed disperser quickly incorporates powders, fibers, pellets, and other solids into a liquid batch, while the planetary blade continuously sweeps the vessel walls and bottom. The stirrer also functions to help move viscous material toward the saw-tooth blade and ensure uniform heat distribution. Because each agitator is independently controlled, flow patterns and shear rates can be fine-tuned at any point during the mixing cycle. Used in conjunction with a Ross discharge system, the PowerMix is capable of high-throughput production of viscous dispersions up to around 2 million centipoise.
