Charles Ross & Son Co. unveiled a new laboratory paddle blender offering advanced features for more convenient, automated powder blending and liquid spraying operation with recipe management. The one-cubic-foot ROSS Model 42P-1SS, constructed of U.S. stainless steel with 150-grit interior finish, is driven by a one-horsepower TEFC motor for long lasting durability and strength, the company says. Complementing the blender’s full vacuum capability, new features include a pneumatic powder charging port and liquid delivery spray system for batch-to-batch consistency. Touchscreen PLC recipe controls are housed inside a NEMA 4X stainless steel enclosure allowing for indoor or outdoor use. For increased versatility, an interchangeable ribbon agitator is available. Both paddle and ribbon agitators are widely used in the preparation of dry solid-solid mixes, and can easily accommodate minor liquid additions, according to the company.
