Equipment Snapshot: Charles Ross & Son’s newly redesigned Ross Inline Solids/Liquid Injection Manifold (SLIM) mixer includes an operator-friendly workbench for improved material handling. The company’s SLIM technology works by pumping liquid from a tank, while simultaneously drawing powders and other minor components from a hopper. As the liquid stream enters the SLIM’s rotor/stator assembly, it encounters the powder injection under high-shear conditions. The resulting mixture is pumped by the mixer back into the tank and recirculates until dispersion is complete. The workbench makes it easier for operators to handle bags and containers of raw materials during the mixing cycle. The 25HP Inline SLIM mixer shown has a built-in control panel mounted on a portable cart for servicing multiple vessels of virtually any size located anywhere on the plant floor.
