Ross introduced a Laboratory High Viscosity Disperser featuring interchangeable bow-tie and paddle blades driven by a 2HP explosion-proof, VFD-capable motor. Suitable for use with standard 5-gallon pails, this bench-top mixer is ideal for thorough blending of fluids with very different viscosities, quickly resuspending dense solids that have settled during transport or storage, preparing thick paste-like formulations and other similar applications.
The High Viscosity Disperser Model PBA-2 is offered with either an electro-mechanical lift or an air/oil hydraulic lift. Both options allow the operator to easily raise and lower the mixing blades during or in between batches. All wetted parts are stainless steel 304, as well as the shaft guard and adjustable can lock.
In lieu of 5-gallon pails, Ross-supplied vacuum-rated stainless steel mix vessels may also be used with the PBA-2. Sight/charge ports on the vessel cover, heating/cooling jacket, discharge valve, mixer bench and other features are available as options.
Larger capacity models of the High Viscosity Disperser are offered for standard 55-gallon drums and other vessel sizes up to 500 gallons.
