Large-scale Multi-Shaft Mixers
Ross Multi-Shaft Mixers are ideal for large-scale processing of pastes, gels, dispersions, suspensions and slurries from low to high viscosity. Equipped with two or three independently-driven agitators working in tandem, these versatile machines are designed for heavy-duty mixing under controlled temperature and can deliver a wide range of shear levels.
