Ross high-speed dispersers now feature two-hand safety controls for raising and lowering the mixing head. The two-hand system requires two push buttons to be pressed and maintained to allow operation of the hydraulic lift, ensuring the operator’s hands are clear from contact with moving parts.

The high-speed dispersers are workhorses used throughout the process industries, primarily for incorporating powders into liquids. Running at tip speeds up to around 5000 ft/min, the open disc blade of the disperser generates vigorous flow and a characteristic vortex into which dry ingredients are added for quick wet-out. This classic mixer can handle product viscosities up to 50,000 centipoise. Popular sizes are available from stock for immediate purchase or trial/rental.
