Benefits of choosing a ROSS/AMK Tilt Kneader
What does a ROSS/AMK Tilt Kneader do?
ROSS/AMK Kneader Extruders are designed for the mixing and discharging of heavy viscous materials exceeding 10 million cP. These machines are used throughout the chemical, pharmaceutical, plastic, coating, ink, paint, adhesive, composite, and food product industries in the manufacturing of highly viscus, thick and very sticky products such as silicone rubber, putties, printing ink, oxide ceramics, hard metals, and marzipan.
How does a ROSS/ Tilt Kneader work?
The Tilt Kneader includes two sigma blades that rotate toward each other at differential speeds. Each blade moves the material in opposite directions thereby providing excellent cross mixing of all raw materials. The blades pass the trough walls and each other at close clearances. This close clearance provides a shearing and tearing action that is beneficial to the size reduction of solids such as rubber and plastic pellets. Once the mix cycle is complete the trough of the mixer is tilted and the mixture is discharged to a secondary container for transfer to packaging or to downstream operations.

Why Choose a ROSS/AMK Tilt Kneader
Safety – Supplied complete with electrical equipment to operate the blades and tilting mechanism, these kneaders are built according to applicable health and safety regulations.
Design - The ROSS/AMK Tilt Kneaders are available in laboratory and production models with capacities ranging from 1 to 4,000 liters, as well as a variety of horsepower combinations and optional features such as vacuum design, jacketing, control systems, and controlled torque coupling.
ROSS represents the finest German technology in partnership with AMK Kneader-Extruders and provides mixing solutions for customers in the adhesive, food, rubber and chemical industries.
Kneaders are well proven and reliable mixers employed in the compounding of extremely viscous mixtures that cannot be processed efficiently in vertical-style agitators such as double planetary mixers.
Ross Double Planetary Mixers designed to match standard 55-gallon drums enable manufacturers to produce viscous mixtures right in the shipping container. Advantages include minimal clean-up, waste generation, storage and handling.
