Uniformly dispersing powders into a liquid batch in a practical amount of time is a common problem for F&B manufacturers. This white paper explores five tips for dispersing powders more efficiently.
Rotor/stator mixers specially designed to generate a powerful vacuum within the mix chamber are capable of inducting a wide variety of solids, from fine powders to friable pellets.
Desired increases in production rates and some changes in products forced a major food processor and packager in the Northeast to consider upgrading some of its material handling and processing operations. By VAC-U-MAX
This white paper presents some basic best practices for efficient processing in a Ribbon Blender. The ideas discussed here are recommendations based on practical and technical experience gained by Ross over several decades as a leading supplier of Ribbon Blenders to the process industries worldwide.
This white paper provides an overview of the different types of high speed mixers utilized in the manufacture of paints, inks and coatings. These machines accomplish a range of processing objectives which sometimes overlap.
This white paper presents an overview of mixing technologies employed in the dispersion of nano-sized solid particles into liquid. By Christine Banaszek
Vacuum drying is ideal for processing heat-sensitive materials without risk of thermal degradation. It also allows manufacturers to recover costly solvents or safely dispose of any harmful volatiles removed from the closed system.
A polymer services company installs several load-cell-based loss-in-weight feeders to automate its ingredient-feeding process and eliminate problems caused by manually handling and feeding the ingredients. By Schenck AccuRate
Without concrete, our modern life is not conceivable. It is a versatile construction material – on land, on water, and when necessary even at dizzying heights. The base material cement is a decisive factor in the use of concrete, for example for roads, bridges, tunnels and towers – the construction material concrete has many potential applications and guarantees that construction components and structures are highly durable. To continue its success, a cement plant turned to modern weighing technology for its production processes.
The Schenck AccuRate PureFeed® AP-300 feeder was designed specifically for sanitary processes that include the following customer driven features: quick and easy disassembly, a dual arm agitation system for maximizing material handling versatility, and an FDA compliant EPDM feed hopper that is disposable and recyclable. That means simpler, shorter cleaning cycles and virtually, no chance of cross contamination when moving from one material to another. The PureFeed® AP-300 is available in volumetric and gravimetric configurations with feed rates from 0.5 to approximately 150 Kg / hour.
The SacMaster® is a versatile and safe bulk bag unloading system designed specifically to include important features and functions identified by bulk bag manufacturers and users in multiple industries. Bag tensioning, hoist or forklift loading, height adjustability and the patented “Posi-Flow” agitation system, which fluidizes even the most compacted materials make SacMaster® the right choice for unloading starch, lime, aluminum dioxide, pigments, plastic pellets, and a wide range of other bulk materials.
Ross offers complete mixer packages for fast and efficient dispersion of bulk solids in large batches. Pictured is a 1000-gallon Dual-Shaft Mixer with Inline Solids/Liquid Injection Manifold (SLIM) and Recirculation Skid. At the heart of the process is the SLIM Technology which utilizes a specially engineered rotor/stator that generates a powerful vacuum for drawing solids into the mix chamber.
The Ross MegaShear Ultra-High Shear Mixer is designed for homogenizing dispersions and disintegrating large solid particles or droplets suspended in liquid. A unique inline rotor/stator design, the MegaShear’s mixing head (US Patent No. 6,241,472) turns at tip speeds well over 11,000 ft/min and generates extremely complex flow patterns without sacrificing throughput
Ross Technical Director Ken Langhorn announces the addition of a new 10-gallon PowerMix Planetary Disperser to the Ross Test & Development Center.
In this age of technological marvels and Internet madness, it's refreshing to see an innovation that isn't the product of an exotic new technology.
