Charles Ross & Son Co. introduced its Solids/Liquid Injection Manifold, or SLIM, a high-shear mixer system designed to accelerate the dispersion of solids that are difficult to wet out, while eliminating floating powders in batch tanks and reducing dusting in the mixing area.
Pigments liked fumed silica, carbon black, pigments and clays now can be mixed into liquids quickly and economically. They do not need to a filtering step after the mixing operation.
SLIM uses a specially engineered rotor/stator assembly that generates its own powerful vacuum to draw out solids sub-surface. This method of powder induction allows the operator to inject powders at a fast but controlled rate for highly repeatable and superior dispersion.
Powders not only enter the liquid phase sub-surface, but also under intense shear conditions.
Charles Ross is based in Hauppauge, N.Y.
