The ROSS X-Series Inline Ultra-High Shear Mixer produces quality dispersions, suspensions, and emulsions in a variety of industries.

The ROSS X-Series Inline Ultra-High Shear Mixer is designed for efficient high- throughput emulsification, dispersion, and homogenization. Available in both sanitary and industrial configurations, this versatile machine produces quality dispersions, suspensions, and emulsions in a variety of industries including food, cosmetic, pharmaceutical, chemical, adhesive, and composites manufacturing.

The Model HSM-409XSHD-125 (pictured right) is a clean-in-place- capable sanitary mixer featuring a type 316 stainless-steel mixing chamber, a 150-psig jacket for cooling and heating up to 250 °F, and an X-5 Series 9” diameter AL6XN stainless-steel rotor/stator that operates up to 5700 rpm (13,430 ft/min tip speed).

The X-Series mix head is a patented design made up of concentric rows of intermeshing teeth—product enters at the middle of the stator and travels outward through the radial channels. Every pass through the rotor/stator exposes the product to tremendous shear because of the combination of very tight tolerances and extremely high tip speeds. Compared to traditional colloid mills, the X-Series routinely achieves a higher reduction in droplet or agglomerate size.
