Ross, an industrial mixing, blending, drying and dispersion equipment manufacturer, has introduced a triple-shaft design specifically suited for hot melts and viscous dispersions.
The Ross Model CDA-800 has a mixing capacity of 500 to 800 gallons and is designed for full vacuum operation. The mixer is suitable for high heat operation up to 600°F and includes an insulated 50-psig stainless steel dimpled jacket covering the side and bottom of the dished bottom mixing can.
Along with a standard three-wing anchor for bulk flow and heat transfer, the unit is also outfitted with two reversible high-speed disperser shafts, each featuring two 16-inches, height-adjustable blades of the classic disperser design, ideal for quick hydration of dry ingredients and agglomerate dispersion. The removable mix vessel sits 24 inches above the floor for convenient discharge. Speed, time, temperature and vacuum level are displayed on a 10-inch touchscreen and controlled via PLC.
