Streamlining the Processing of Powder in Cosmetics


ROSS has introduced a special triple-shaft mixer specifically suited for hot melts and viscous dispersions.

The 600-gallon ROSS VersaMix Model VM-600 is capable of high-speed subsurface powder induction with the company’s proprietary Solids/Liquid Injection Manifold (SLIM). SLIM incorporates powder or liquid phases directly into the rotor-stator mix head, causing instant wet out as it rotates at 3,600 RPM. 

The mixer is reportedly 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. The classic dual-post triple-shaft design has been revolutionized with this feature to streamline the processing of substantial powder phases.

The robust anchor agitator moves product from the high shear rotor stator head to a high-speed dispersing head, which breaks down any remaining fisheyes. Used to quickly mix large batches throughout the process industries, the SLIM feature accelerates loading phases exponentially. 

This design is available from laboratory sizes upwards of 4,000 gallons. For more information, contact ROSS.
