Designed with efficiency and mobility in mind, the ROSS Model HSM-405SC-25 Inline High Shear Mixer with Solids/Liquid Injection Manifold (SLIM) Technology is an ideal choice for production floors that require flexibility. The easy-to-clean stainless steel portable skid with a built-in workbench saves time and money as it allows the mixer to be used anywhere in a plant. This eliminates the need for multiple mixers separately dedicated to each vessel or product. As an external mixer, the Inline SLIM can be piped to the recirculation loop of virtually any size vessel. Featuring sanitary tri-clamp connections, this 3A-compliant machine can be cleaned in place but is also quick to disassemble for deep cleaning and sanitation. Capable of injecting powders directly into a fast-moving liquid stream without the use of an eductor or pump, the SLIM is engineered for high-speed and high-volume mixing requirements for wetting out powders and creating a fine immediate dispersion.

Manufacturing processed cheese using conventional methods can require several processing steps and equipment types. However, with a Silverson mixer, the whole process can be carried out in a single step. Using a Silverson disintegrator in a jacketed vessel, large blocks of cheese can be rapidly chopped down to crumbs and other ingredients such as cream, milk proteins, emulsifying salts, and coloring can also be added straight into the vessel. After a short mixing cycle, the product is ready to cook before further processing. The company offer mixers from laboratory or pilot scale units up to bulk production machines for several cheese processing applications.

SPX Flow offers the APV Flex-Mix Pilot Mixer, which enables food and beverage customers to test small-scale pilot batches of low to high-viscosity product samples using just a single unit. Customers can buy or rent the pilot mixer to conduct tests at their own facilities for everything from infant formula, ice cream, and plant-based products to dressings, sauces, and high-protein yogurts. The in-house tests give customers a better sense of whether products and recipes can be replicated on a larger scale. In addition, by conducting the tests on a smaller scale, customers can avoid shutting down their production lines for a long time.
