Ross, Charles & Son has added a 500-gallon option to its line of VersaMix multi-shaft mixers, which are suitable for processing medium to high-viscosity applications up to several hundred thousand centipoise including slurries, pastes, gels, and suspensions.

The new VMC-500 model is equipped with a custom combination of independently driven agitators. The anchor agitator with helical flights and the screw auger agitator work in unison to promote product turnover while bringing air pockets to the surface, as stated by the company. Two saw-tooth, high speed disperser blades impart shear for improved powder wet-out and thorough deagglomeration.

Additional features include special air casters to promote mobility of the mix vessel, programmable logic controller recipe controls with data acquisition capabilities, and a purged explosion-proof operator station.
