VersaMix Multi-Shaft Mixers designed for sanitary and high-purity applications feature customizable agitators, dry-running mechanical seals, full recovery vacuum system, CIP spray nozzles, and touchscreen recipe controls. Pharmaceutical, medical, food, cosmetic and personal care products routinely batched in the VersaMix include pastes, gels and suspensions with viscosities up to several hundred thousand centipoise.
Shown is a 1,000-gallon VersaMix rated for 28”Hg vacuum up to 14 psi internal pressure at 275 degrees F. All product contact surfaces are stainless steel type 316L polished to 240 grit (20ra) mechanical finish. A special hydraulic lift raises and lowers the agitators: a three-wing anchor, dual-propeller and powder induction rotor/stator mixer.
The dished-bottom vessel includes a pneumatically actuated flush tank full port ball valve, quick-acting toggle clamps for connection to the mixer cover, ASME dimpled jacket, insulation blanket and stainless steel sheathing. Sight ports, temperature probes, level sensors, transfer pump and a load cell system were also supplied.
Available in many standard sizes from one through 4,000 gallons capacity, the VersaMix offers simple and reliable scalability from product development all the way to full scale production. Mixer features are tailored to a specific formulation or range of products for maximum yield and consistent uniformity.
