For high-volume solid-liquid mixing requirements, Charles Ross & Son Company offers specially engineered powder induction systems coupled to an agitated recirculation tank. The Solids/Liquid Injection Manifold (SLIM) technology is based on a modified rotor/stator mixer designed to generate a powerful vacuum, the motive force for injecting powders directly into a fast-moving liquid stream under high shear conditions. Shown is a Ross Model HSM-405SC-25 SLIM mixer which is 3A-approved and bears the symbol of certification. The four-blade rotor turns at a maximum speed of 3,600 rpm within a slotted stator head, simultaneously pumping liquid and drawing solids from the 2-cu.ft. feed hopper. A butterfly valve is supplied on the hopper for modulating rate of induction.
