Charles Ross & Son Company has customized 150-gallon Triple Shaft Mixer, the Ross VersaMix Model VMC-150, with elaborate automation and safety functions.
Features include six pneumatic clamps rated for 4000 lbs each for remote locking of the mix vessel cover, which is designed for 29.5-in. Hg vacuum and 5-psi internal pressure.
The mixer also includes automated valves for powder feed and clean-in-place liquids, a resistance-temperature detecting multi-point temperature sensor, built-in vacuum pump assembly, load cell system, and a centralized human machine interface. The VMC-150 features a helical auger screw for submerging floating agglomerates. When reversed, the auger screw surfaces air pockets resulting in decreased batch cycle time.
