Charles Ross & Son: Equipment for mixing and blending
This Solids/Liquid Injection Manifold (SLIM) is a high-shear mixer system designed to accelerate the dispersion of hard-to-wet-out solids while eliminating floating powders in batch tanks and reducing dusting in the mixing area. Powders can now be mixed into liquids quickly and economically, requiring no filtering step after the mixing operation, through a specially engineered rotor/stator assembly that generates a powerful vacuum for drawing solids into the mix chamber. The liquid stream immediately encounters the powder addition under intense shear conditions, helping prevent agglomerates and fish eyes from forming. The dispersion is then expelled centrifugally through the stator openings at high velocity.
