The VersaMix Multi-Shaft Mixer from Ross, Charles & Son is designed for large-scale production and enables repeatable batch processing of high-volume viscous applications.

The VersaMix Multi-Shaft Mixer from Ross, Charles & Son is designed for large-scale production and enables repeatable batch processing of high-volume viscous applications such as solid-liquid dispersions, thickened emulsions, suspensions, pastes, and gels. The mixer is adaptable for mixing at low, intermediate, and high-shear levels, or any combination necessary for powder wet-out, deagglomeration, emulsification, homogenization, heating/cooling, and deaeration. 

The Ross Model VMC-750 (pictured) features a dual-post lift, interchangeable 750-gallon mix vessels, and a triple-agitator system consisting of a low-speed anchor, high-speed disperser, and high-shear rotor/stator assembly. Each agitator is independently-driven and controlled from a human-machine interface panel. Features such as agitator combinations, horsepower selections, and recipe controls can be specifically tailored. Laboratory models (one to four gallons) can be scaled to pilot/medium scale (10 and 40 gallons) and large capacity models (from 100-1000 gallons). Fixed-tank designs are offered up to 4000 gallons capacity.
