ROSS Skid-Mounted High Shear Powder Induction & Mixing System With Recirculation Tank ROSS Skid-Mounted High Shear Powder Induction & Mixing System With Recirculation Tank

The ROSS Model HSM-405SC-25 is an inline high shear rotor/stator mixing system incorporating SLIM (Solids/Liquid Injection Manifold) Technology. Unlike conventional eductors, the unique SLIM rotor/stator generates a powerful vacuum without the aid of external pumps and pulls powders directly into the mix chamber, promoting instantaneous wet out under high shear conditions. Mounted on a multipurpose skid with load cells, actuated valves and level switches, the pictured HSM-405SC-25 recirculates into a 400-gallon jacketed tank and is controlled from a 15” industrial PC with Windows.

    Trends, Changes And Verification For Supplier Management

    The desire and need to reduce risks at more points in the food and beverage production process, along with new regulations on the use of preventive controls, has led to a renewed focus on supplier management. Suppliers who use x-ray inspection systems can use the accompanying data as proof to their manufacturer partners. While manufacturers, whose suppliers do not use x-ray on outgoing goods, can deploy x-ray technology to scan incoming goods as a way of keeping them in check.
