The ROSS Inline Ultra High Shear Mixer 700 Series is designed for challenging shear requirements, a more efficient alternative to colloid mills, which generally suffer from low throughput. Depending on the application, it can replace high pressure homogenization or serve as a pre-mixer to high-pressure homogenizers to mitigate clogging and inconsistent feed quality issues. To meet the specific demands of niche processes in the adhesive, chemical, cosmetic, food, beverage, pharmaceutical and plastic/composite industries, ROSS developed the QuadSlot rotor/stator for demanding applications where conventional rotor/stator mixers fall short but do not require the intensity of other ROSS 700 Series ultra-high shear designs, namely the X-Series and Mega Shear.
By exposing the product to four successive stages of increasing shear, the QuadSlot often provides a perfect balance of shear and flow capacity in the inline processing of emulsions, agglomerate size reduction and gas-liquid mixing. The washdown-duty Model HSM-706Q-40 shown below features a 40-horsepower motor with a 6” QuadSlot rotor that runs at tip speeds over 11,000 fpm. This mixer is easy to clean and sanitize in place, saving time and allowing for longer production runs.
