High-efficiency charging hopper
Company: Charles Ross & Son Co., Hauppauge, NY
Equipment Snapshot: Charles Ross & Son Co. is offering a new, high-efficiency charging hopper for its line of high-shear mixers with Solids/Liquid Injection Manifold (SLIM) technology. The improved hopper design ensures a steady feed delivery rate and prevents “rat holes,” or bridging of bulk solids. Typical solids dispersed using the SLIM are carboxymethyl cellulose (CMC), guar gum, carrageenan, xanthan gum, alginates, pectin, calcium carbonate, starch, carbomers, sugar, salts, dye powders and other additives or fillers. The 6-cubic-foot conical feed hopper features multiple air jets and three level transmitters (powder feed off, powder feed on and SLIM induction valve off). All product contact parts are stainless steel 316.
