Charles Ross & Son Co. of Hauppauge, N.Y., introduced the newly redesigned Ross Inline Solids/Liquid Injection Manifold (SLIM) Mixer.
It works by pumping liquid from a tank and simultaneously drawing powders and other minor components from a hopper. As the stream of liquid enters SLIM's rotor/stator assembly, it immediately encounters the powder injection under high-shear conditions. The resulting mixture is pumped by the mixer back into the tank and recirculates until the dispersion is complete.
SLIM includes a work bench.
The processing method handles a wide range of powders, which are challenging to mix into liquid, such as talc, titanium dioxide, carbon black, bentonite clay, starch, fumed silica and gum powders.
Because the Inline SLIM does not require a centrifugal pump, educator or vacuum pump to create suction — common to other powder induction systems — means SLIM is less sensitive to changes and flow viscosity, according to Charles Ross & Son.
