Charles Ross & Son launches Ultra High Shear Mixer series

Charles Ross & Son has introduced the Inline Ultra High Shear Mixer 700 Series, designed for challenging shear requirements. The mixer is described as a more efficient alternative to colloid mills which generally suffer from low throughput. Depending on the application, it can replace high pressure homogenisation; or serve as a pre-mixer to high-pressure homogenisers to mitigate clogging and inconsistent feed quality issues.

To meet the demands of processes in the adhesive, chemical, cosmetic, food, beverage, pharmaceutical and plastic/composite industries, the company developed the QuadSlot rotor/stator. The device is suitable for applications where conventional rotor/stator mixers fall short but do not require the intensity of the company’s other ultra-high shear mixers.

By exposing product to four successive stages of increasing shear, the QuadSlot is aimed to provide a balance of shear and flow capacity in the inline processing of emulsions, agglomerate size reduction and gas-liquid mixing. The washdown-duty Model HSM-706Q-40 shown below features a 40-horsepower motor with a 6” QuadSlot rotor that runs at tip speeds over 11,000 fpm. The mixer is also possible to clean and sanitise in place, saving time and allowing for longer production runs, the company says.
