Charles Ross says that it has made improvements to the dual-post hydraulic lift and seal design of its 1,500-gallon PVM-1500 multi-shaft mixer. The new lifting design is a double-acting, fully hydraulic cylinder operating at a higher pressure, allowing for a smaller cylinder and less oil for operation.

‘The net result is a lifting system that operates at lower cost, requires less maintenance for the end user, and provides faster lifting speed when raising and lowering the agitators,’ said David Hathaway, vice president. The new seal arrangement allows seal replacement without removing agitator shafts, he said. Seal replacement no longer requires removal of the mixer from the tank nor tank entry to access the seal.
