The VMC VersaMix by Charles Ross & Son Company is suited for temperature-critical formulations of medium to high viscosity under stringent vacuum/pressure constraints.

The multi-purpose triple-shaft mixer/reactor is designed for up to 350 ˚F from 29.5-in. Hg vacuum to 8 psig internal pressure and is equipped with a three-wing anchor and two disperser shafts. The machine allows for intense mixing, high-speed dissolution, emulsification, deagglomeration, and heat transfer in pastes, slurries, gels, and suspensions up to several hundred thousand centipoise.

The mixer/reactor can be supplied with explosion-proof motors for each independently driven agitator, a built-in vacuum pump, touchscreen controls with Type X purge system for use in a class one, division one location, and an oil temperature control unit with rapid cool down ability. Spray balls installed in front and behind the agitator shafts reduce cleaning time in between batches, according to the company.
