Double planetary mixers

August 1, 2011




Ross double planetary mixers are available with high-viscosity blades that feature a precisely angled helical contour which generates a sweeping curve that firmly pushes batch material forward and downward, keeping it within the mixing zone at all times. The blades also extend the viscosity range of the mixers to approximately 6 million cP. The mixers feature polished stainless steel 316 wetted parts, labyrinth-style gearbox sealing arrangement, double-lip seals on each stirrer shaft, dust shield, flush-mounted discharge valve and platen-style discharge system. Standard sizes range from 1/2 pint through 750 gal. Optional surface coatings, rotating and sidewall thermocouples, vacuum pump, level sensors and PLC controls are available.
