Equipment Snapshot: Ross VersaMix Multi-Shaft Mixers designed for robust large-scale production enable reliable and repeatable batch processing of high-volume viscous applications such as solid-liquid dispersions, thickened emulsions, suspensions, pastes and gels. As a multi-agitator system, the VersaMix is easily adaptable for mixing at low, intermediate and high shear levels, or any combination necessary for powder wet-out, deagglomeration, emulsification, homogenization, heating/cooling and deaeration.

Agitator combinations, horsepower selections, recipe controls and other features of the VersaMix are always tailored to address the specific process demands of any mixing application. The pictured Ross Model VMC-750 is equipped with a dual-post lift, interchangeable 750-gallon mix vessels, and a triple-agitator system consisting of a low speed anchor, high speed disperser and high shear rotor/stator assembly. Each agitator is independently-driven and controlled from an HMI panel.

Laboratory models (1, 2 and 4 gallons) are easily scaled to pilot/medium scale (10 and 40 gallons) and on to large capacity change-can models (from 100 through 1,000 gallons). Fixed-tank designs are offered up to 4,000 gallons capacity.
