Used in conjunction with a Ross Discharge System, the PowerMix is exceptionally capable of high-throughput production of viscous dispersions up to around 2 million centipoise. This turnkey solution is utilized in a wide range of applications including adhesives, sealants, molding and potting compounds, fiber-filled composites, plastisols, elastomers, conductive inks, specialty coatings, thermal greases, lubricants and ceramic dispersions.
The new turnkey package features a PowerMix and Discharge System installed on a common raised base. The 40-gallon mixer shown is equipped with a helical High Viscosity “HV” blade and an 8” diameter disperser. After the mixing cycle, the vessel is rolled over to the discharge station. A precisely-machined platen is lowered hydraulically into the vessel, forcing the finished product out of the bottom valve. The Discharge System is activated by a self-contained hydraulic power unit and designed for up to 50 psi under the platen. The raised base allows for product to be discharged directly into 5-gallon pails positioned underneath the vessel.
