Shaft mixer design
Ross now offers a new dual-shaft VersaMix design incorporating a special helical agitator and high-speed dispersion blade. According to the company, this features is useful for viscous materials that have poor flow qualities, the addition of powder that have a tendency to float on the surface and when heat transfer of the batch constituents is important. The helical agitator is designed for bi-directional operation. Teflon scraper assemblies are attached to the outside of the anchor agitator to facilitate scraping of the sides and bottom of the vessel, when operating in either the forward or reverse direction. The VersaMix can also incorporate a high shear rotor-stator mixer. The model VMC-100 includes an air/oil lift that raises the agitators out of the mix vessel.
