Ross’ Multi-Shaft Mixers with interchangeable mixing vessels include an optional cover featuring propeller blades to ensure product uniformity when products are stored and discharged. One of the mixers, a 15-gallon mixer, includes a three-wing anchor agitator, high-speed disperser, and rotor/stator emulsifier. The mixer comes with a temperature sensor to measure non-Newtonian shear-thinning materials up to 100,000 centipoise, and the mixer cover comes mounted with an inline viscometer. The mixer is designed for vacuum operation up to 29.5” Hg and has a 5-micron particle filter and trap.

The mixer is designed so the user can easily remove the vessel containing the finished product, attach a cover, and replace the mixing vessel with a fresh one to continue the mixing process. Quick acting clamps secure the holding tank cover, which is suitable for 2 psi inert gas purge, and a 0.5 HP impeller agitator is mounted on the cover and pre-wired to a variable frequency drive to ensure convenient operation.
