This white paper explores five ways to increase energy efficiency in new and existing mixing processes.
Mixing is one of the most ubiquitous unit operations in the processing world. And oftentimes, improvements specific to the mixing step lead to overall big rewards that translate well in the balance sheet. The usual challenges include maintaining batch-tobatch uniformity and optimizing blend times, but could be as simple, yet equally important, as improving cleanliness.
This white paper presents some strategies for improving commonly encountered batch mixing problems. Because mixing processes vary from one application to another — with different objectives, design configurations, rheologies, operating limitations, etc. — there are no fix-all solutions that will apply to every situation.
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.
This paper provides practical information on the efficient use of specialty mixing equipment for the preparation of low, medium and high viscosity solid-liquid mixtures under low and high shear conditions.
When selecting mixing systems, foresight for scale-up is important for long-term success. A quick shift between systems can be the difference between economical success and a financial disaster.
Breakdown of organic wastes entering a wastewater treatment plant is accomplished by using a biomass or blend of beneficial microscopic organisms, bacteria, and solids.
For years, blending dense slurries has been a job for the traditional vacuum dryer with a rotating vessel. Today, processors are finding a different blender/dryer can handle the heaviest of materials more easily.
Ross Vertical Blender/Dryers are ideal for blending and drying ceramic materials whether in powder or slurry form.
Vacuum-capable Vertical Blender/Dryers are proven equipment for drying plastic resins.
Multi-Shaft Mixers capable of bulk agitation, high-speed powder wet-out and efficient heat transfer are ideal equipment for floor coatings based on epoxy, urethane, acrylic or hybrid chemistries.
A wide range of polishing and finishing compounds are formulated for different surfaces and applications.
Mixing challenges throughout the process industries are heightened as the viscosity and complexity of the mixture rises. This webinar reviews the numerous options that are available to help select the most efficient mixer for a users requirements.
Dry blenders are typically described as being of horizontal, vertical or tumbling designs. On the surface it would seem that each can be used for the same application, but subtle differences usually make one preferable over another. This webinar helps to narrow the choice of the unit for a particular production requirement.
