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/min

Alumina 90

Bentonite Clay 70

Calcium Carbonate 105

Carbon Black (beaded) 65

Carboxymethlycellulose 60

Carbopol 50

Fumed Silica 20

Milk Powder 68

Starch 80

Sugar (granulated) 125

Talc 90

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.
