ROSS High Shear Mixers with Solids/Liquid Injection Manifold (SLIM) Technology are designed for fast and efficient dispersion of powders into low-viscosity liquids. In this video, we used the Model HSM-100LH-2 with a 2" diameter SLIM rotor, slotted stator and a SLIM hose/wand attachment.
A major chemical manufacturing company recently ordered three Ross Model HSM-401 Inline High Shear Mixers to reduce the size of particulates in a hydrocarbon slurry.
Ross Inline High Shear Mixers are used to produce flocculants for wastewater treatment facilities all over the world.
A company that manufactures zinc coatings was using a high-speed disperser with a modified sawtooth blade to disperse the fine, dusty zinc powder into a resin based vehicle.
A major chemical company produces a catalyst for use in internal chemical processing. This catalyst includes a mixture of silica and metallic salts and is manufactured in a 2500 gallon reactor. The catalyst solution is 40% solids, has a specific gravity of 1.2 and a viscosity of approximately 100 cps.
The PreMax`s high-flow design enables product entry from the top and bottom of the rotor/stator assembly. It generates both upper and lower vortexes which allow for extremely efficient powder additions.
Obtaining the optimal functionality of CELLULON PX or AxCel CG-PX microfibrous cellulose requires proper activation techniques. The co-processing agents present in these microfibrous cellulose blends are xanthan gum and cellulose gum, both soluble components that need to be properly dispersed and hydrated in order to completely release the insoluble active ingredient, microfibrous cellulose, into the water phase.
