VersaMix multi-shaft mixers (photo) incorporate a proprietary powder-induction feature for efficient charging of thickeners to produce high-quality gels, creams and pastes. The VersaMix includes a three-winged anchor and a high-speed disperser blade, which provide a robust combination of shear and bulk flow at various stages of the mixing cycle. The third agitator, a rotor-stator emulsifying head, showcases the unique Solids/Liquid Injection Manifold (SLIM) technology for convenient subsurface raw-material additions. All shaft seals are lubricant-free. Operated from an 11-in. touchscreen, a recipe system enables convenient batching based on speed, time, temperature and vacuum level. The VersaMix is available in laboratory-scale and production sizes upwards of 2,000 gal. — Charles Ross & Son Co., Hauppauge, N.Y.
