Ross Introduces New High Shear Mixer

Charles Ross & Son Company has announced the introduction of a new model of its proven line of high shear mixers.

The PM Model incorporates a rotor/stator configuration that promotes dual flow through a special Delta rotor/stator. This higher flow promoted by this design is ideal for use in agglomerate reduction and the production of fine emulsions.

When a media mill is used to finish a product in a single pass, the PM Model can most often eliminate the need for the mill altogether. When the product requires multiple passes in a Media Mill, experience has shown the PM can reduce milling time by up to 50% of that which is normally required. Cycle times of 15 – 30 minutes are typical.

The PM Model is designed as a batch mixer and is mounted on a conventional air/oil hydraulic lift system. Several models are available from 5 through 200 HP. Typical applications are found throughout the process industries and include chemical dispersions, fine food emulsions, condiments, cosmetics, adhesives, etc.

The primary advantages of the PM include:

  • Excellent flow and product movement of the batch.
  • Creation of a dual vortex above and below the rotor/stator.
  • Rapid incorporation of powders
  • Shortened batch times.
  • Reduction or elimination of the need for secondary equipment

Ross Mixing, Blending, Drying and Dispersion equipment is manufactured on five continents and is marketed worldwide. In the USA Ross operates five plants.
