R&D and Pilot-Scale Mixers

Ross manufactures a wide range of bench-top mixers for R&D and pilot-scale requirements, with many selections for multi-viscosity processing, dry solid-solid blending, powder wet-out, inline (continuous) mixing, agitated vacuum drying, homogenization, emulsification and particle size reduction/wet milling. Ranging from 1-quart to 10-gallon capacities, several of these laboratory mixers ship from stock and are being offered for trial/rental as well as free consignment.

Available in both sanitary and non-sanitary configurations, all R&D and pilot-scale Ross mixers are completely scalable for seamless transition to full-scale production. These include Ribbon Blenders, Vertical Blenders, Tumble Blenders, Static Mixers, High Speed Dispersers, High Shear and Ultra-High Shear (Rotor/Stator) Mixers, Powder Induction Systems, Multi-Shaft Mixers, Double Planetary Mixers and Planetary Dispersers.

When the product developed in this mixer moves on to full-scale production, mixing results are easily replicated whether in a 40-gallon or a 4,000-gallon VersaMix equipped with geometrically-similar agitators running at comparable tip speeds
