  • 5 Steps To Increase Energy-Efficient Mixing
    5 Steps To Increase Energy-Efficient Mixing

    Mixer testing simulation trials are needed to confirm the suitability of a specific mixing strategy. This white paper explores five ways to increase energy efficiency in new and existing mixing processes.

  • The Quest For Clean Mixing

    Mixing is one of the most common operations in food processing, but comes with challenges -- batch-to-batch uniformity, optimizing blend times, and most importantly: improving cleanliness.

  • Solutions To Batch Mixing Issues
    Solutions To Batch Mixing Issues

    Mixing processes vary from one application to another and there are no fix-all solutions.This white paper presents some strategies for improving commonly encountered batch mixing problems.

  • Efficiencies In Powder Dispersion For Manufacturers
    Efficiencies In Powder Dispersion For Manufacturers

    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.

  • How To Optimize Solid-Liquid Mixing

    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.

  • How To Easily Scale-Up Mixing Systems
    How To Easily Scale-Up Mixing Systems

    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.

  • Dissolved Oxygen Measurement In A Wastewater Treatment Plant

    Breakdown of organic wastes entering a wastewater treatment plant is accomplished by using a biomass or blend of beneficial microscopic organisms, bacteria, and solids.

  • Blending And Drying High-Density Powders
    Blending And Drying High-Density Powders

    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.

  • Recommended Blending & Drying Equipment For Ceramic Powders And Slurries
    Recommended Blending & Drying Equipment For Ceramic Powders And Slurries

    Ceramic powders that need to be mixed with other solids or coated with a liquid prior to drying are efficiently processed in a Vertical Blender/Dryer. Manufacturers benefit from the ability of the Vertical Blender/Dryer to quickly remove moisture or solvent from a wide range of feed forms — from slurries and pastes to granules, pellets and powders.

  • Recommended Drying Equipment For Plastic Resins
    Recommended Drying Equipment For Plastic Resins

    Vacuum-capable Vertical Blender/Dryers are proven equipment for drying plastic resins.

  • Recommended Mixing Equipment For Floor Coatings
    Recommended Mixing Equipment For Floor Coatings

    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.

Vertical Blenders For Manufacturing Vertical Blenders For Manufacturing

Ross V-Blenders are most often used for the intimate dry blending of free flowing solids. The solids being blended in these units can vary in bulk density and in percentage of the total mixture. Materials being blended are constantly being split and intermixed as the shell rotates. Normal cycle times are typically in the range of 15 minutes, however can be less depending on the difficulty of blending.

Density Sensors L-Dens 4x7 Density Sensors L-Dens 4x7

The L-Dens 4x7 series of density sensors provides an accuracy of 1 x 10-4 g/cm³ in a compact design. Continuous measurement of density, concentration and API gravity optimizes production processes and ensures a consistently high quality of product.

Sanitary Mix Vessels Sanitary Mix Vessels
Stainless Steel Sanitary Vessels are available in a variety of sizes and shapes. The vessels shown are all constructed in type 316 ss and are designed for vacuum operation. Each includes a variety of nozzles and a large manway for ingredient addition.
Automatic Distillation Unit Automatic Distillation Unit

ADU 5 is the ideal solution to automatically perform high-precision atmospheric distillation tests to characterize the volatility of petrochemical products like all standard fuels, biodiesel and ethanol-blended gasoline.

V-Blenders V-Blenders

V-Blenders designs are most often used for the intimate dry blending of free flowing solids. The solids being blended in these units can vary in bulk density and in percentage of the total mixture. Materials being blended are constantly being split and intermixed as the shell rotates.

Double Cone Blenders Double Cone Blenders

Double Cone Blenders are most often used for the intimate dry blending of free flowing solids. The solids being blended in these units can vary in bulk density and in percentage of the total mixture. Materials being blended are constantly being intermixed as the Double Cone rotates. Normal cycle times are typically in the range of 10 minutes, however they can be less depending on the difficulty of blending.
