Ross Bow Tie Dispersers, also called High Viscosity Dispersers, are designed for mixing heavy pastes and viscous liquids. Compared to other single-shaft agitators, the economical Bow Tie Disperser is more robust and heavy-duty, capable of handling viscosities up to several hundred thousand centipoise.
Driven by an explosion-proof inverter-duty motor, the bow tie agitator quickly wets out solids and incorporates them into a liquid vehicle, creating a uniform consistency without running at high speeds. This type of mixer is also best suited for re-suspending dense materials that have packed into layers during storage or transit.
An air/oil hydraulic lift raises and lowers the agitator into the vessel. Safety limit switches prevent operation of the mixer while in the raised position or without a vessel in place. All wetted parts are stainless steel 304. As an option, the Bow Tie Disperser may be supplied with a vacuum-rated mix vessel complete with heating/cooling jacket, thermocouple, sight/charge ports on the vessel cover and caster wheels for easy movement.
