Ross has introduced a new triple-shaft polymer mixer which has been specifically developed for hot melts and viscous dispersions.

The Ross Model CDA-800 has a mixing capacity of 500-800 gallons and is designed for full vacuum operation. It is suitable for high heat operation up to 600°F and includes an insulated 50-psig stainless steel dimpled jacket covering the side and bottom of the dished bottom mixing can. In addition to a three-wing anchor for bulk flow and heat transfer, the unit is outfitted with two reversible high speed disperser shafts, each featuring two 16 inch height-adjustable blades with the usual disperser design, making it suitable for quick hydration of dry ingredients and agglomerate dispersion. The removable mix vessel sits 24 inch above the floor for convenient discharge. Speed, time, temperature and vacuum level are displayed on a 10 inch touch screen and controlled via PLC.
