Equipment Snapshot: Offering over 175 years of experience in designing and building process equipment, Ross is uniquely equipped to accept a wide range of custom fabrication projects—from simple jacketed vessels and agitated tanks to pressurized reactors and large tank farms.

Pictured is a 300-gallon vessel designed for 5 psi internal pressure at 300oF. Product wetted surfaces are stainless steel type 304L polished to 240-grit finish. The vessel is agitated by a special disperser blade driven to 1,150 rpm by a 75HP explosion-proof motor. The agitator shaft utilizes a mechanical seal running in an oil bath. A 50-psig ASME Code-stamped baffled jacket surrounds the sides and vessel bottom for heating/cooling. All elastomers, nozzles, sensors, dip tubes, valves and operator controls are supplied based on the end user’s specific requirements. The mixing vessel's purpose is to disperse fine powders into liquid.
