Ross planetary mixers are available with sealed and purged gearbox assemblies for sensitive applications requiring protection against contamination. Designed for sanitary formulations, the mixers have 2 rectangular planetary blades that rotate on their own axes, while they orbit the mix vessel on a common axis to move viscous fluids or wet granulations. fex0512ts9_inbod.jpg

The stainless steel, heavy-duty gearbox housing includes a sloped cover to prevent contamination and pooling of condensed liquids; solvent vapors and airborne particles are prevented from entering the purged gearbox. The mixers feature a gable-roofed bonnet to avoid dust or water collection. All ports and connections are sanitary tri-clamp design. Atomizing spray nozzles are installed on dedicated ports to control the addition of liquid raw materials into the batch.
