CFCM Ross Versa 400

The ROSS VersaMix Multi-Shaft Mixers with Solids/Liquid Injection Manifold (SLIM) Technology enable large-scale powder dispersion into low-viscosity liquids, including resins, oils, melted waxes, emulsions, and aqueous solutions. VersaMix Model VM-600 is a 600-gal capacity dual-shaft mixer designed for deep vacuum levels.

Featuring a High Shear Mixer with SLIM Technology, the rotor/stator assembly of the VM-600 creates a  suction that draws solids sub-surface directly into the high-shear zone. This method of material addition accelerates powder wet-out and minimizes issues like agglomeration (fisheyes), floating powders and dusting. The second agitator is a Two-Wing Anchor equipped with hinged Teflon scrapers for consistent heat transfer across the vessel sidewalls and bottom, which could be jacketed for temperature control. After the powder induction step, the VM-600 can handle a significant increase in viscosity because the combined mixing action of Anchor and High Shear Mixer ensures turnover. The finished product may take on the consistency of a thickened gel, paste or slurry. The Ross VersaMix can be supplied with a third agitator, such as a sawtooth disc blade or a screw auger. 

Conveniently operated from a 15-in. HMI touchscreen with a customizable recipe system, this mixer allows accurate and efficient batching based on speed, time, temperature and vacuum pressure. The digital valve controls; printing of batch ticket, interface with pumps and load cells; and other functions are also programmed into the mixer control panel.

New Digital Solution Helps Customers Bring Colours to Life

AkzoNobel 3D colour visualization tool
AkzoNobel Powder Coatings has developed a new web application 3D colour visualization tool within its Interpon webshop to help customers better understand how a powder coating’s colour, texture and finish that look good in theory, will actually appear in reality. 

The tool provides instant access to thousands of colours in the Interpon range. Using a 360-degree dynamic camera and simulated lighting, the customer is given a true-to-life image of how the colour performs to a degree of accuracy and realism not possible before in a virtual environment.  

Rather than the image being ‘flat’, the customer can orientate the ‘virtual’ panel to see how the light reflects and the colour looks from different angles.
