Rated for vacuum up to 29.5-inHg, the Ross Model PDM-40 PowerMix planetary disperser has a working capacity of 40 gal. All the wetted surfaces are 316L stainless steel polished to a 150-grit finish. The 10hp rectangular planetary stirrer and 15hp dual-blade disperser revolve around the batch while rotating on their own axes at variable speeds. A sidewall scraper arm and bottom scraper attached to the planetary stirrer enhance heating/cooling via the jacketed vessel. Mounted to the mixer, the NEMA 4X PLC control system creates and stores recipes based on agitator speeds, time, temperature and vacuum level. Process variables are entered and monitored from a 10-in. color touchscreen HMI with data acquisition capability.
