New Inline System Speeds Up Powder Additions
Ross has introduced a new in-line system that dramatically improves powder induction in a liquid stream. The unique rotor/stator in the SLIM system is the first to include “Progressive Spiral Porting,” which produces high flow, high shear, and a high level of vacuum within the rotor/stator generator. This enables the system to induct powders at unprecedented rates. This results in shorter mixing cycles, improved end-product quality, and a safer working environment by eliminating “dusting” in the plant.
Powder Induction Rates - lbs/minAlumina 90
Bentonite Clay 70
Calcium Carbonate 105
Carbon Black (beaded) 65
Fumed Silica 20
Milk Powder 68
Sugar (granulated) 125
Titanium Dioxide 100
A portable configuration makes the In-line SLIM system especially versatile and cost-efficient. The system can be positioned alongside a mix vessel and used only during the mixing phase in which high-speed powder induction is needed. Then, the system can be wheeled away to perform the same operation on another batch-mixing system.
