Ross, Charles & Son offers a variety of mixers for mixing and blending applications. The dual-shaft mixers (pictured) are suitable for mixing 50-, 100-, and 200-gallon batches and are equipped with two independently-driven, variable-speed agitators, and a high-speed disperser and a two-wing anchor. Both agitators provide adjustable shear and efficient turnover of low- to high-viscosity materials including pastes, gels, suspensions, slurries, and fine dispersions up to several hundred thousand centipoise. The mixers come standard with an air/oil hydraulic lift, vacuum capability, jacketed mix vessel, stainless steel wetted parts, and inverter-duty motors.

The company also offers a Portable High Shear Mixing System designed for powder dispersion into liquid, emulsification, and homogenization in a closed, temperature controlled vessel. The 200-L mixing system featuring stainless steel 316L wetted parts, sight/charge ports, ASME dimpled jacket rated for 85 psig, chloride-free insulation with stainless steel sheathing, high accuracy weighing scale, and NEMA 4X gas-purged controls. The mixer is mounted on the cover in a vapor-tight sealing arrangement. Its four-blade rotor runs up to 3600 rpm within a close tolerance slotted stator, delivering mechanical and hydraulic shear. The mixer is driven by a 5 HP stainless steel wash-down duty explosion-proof motor.
