Ross VersaMix Multi-Shaft Mixers are designed for sanitary and high-purity applications and feature customizable agitators, dry-running mechanical seals, full recovery vacuum system, clean-in-place spray nozzles, and touchscreen recipe controls. Pharmaceutical, medical, food, cosmetic, and personal care products routinely batched in the VersaMix include pastes, gels, and suspensions with viscosities up to several hundred thousand centipoise. The 1000-gallon VersaMix, which is rated for 28-in. Hg vacuum up to 14 psi internal pressure at 275 ºF, features stainless-steel type 316L polished to 240 grit (20ra) mechanical finish contact surfaces. A special hydraulic lift raises and lowers the agitators: a three-wing anchor, dual-propeller, and powder induction rotor/stator mixer. The dished-bottom vessel includes a pneumatically actuated flush tank full port ball valve, quick-acting toggle clamps for connection to the mixer cover, ASME dimpled jacket, insulation blanket, and stainless-steel sheathing.
