Bogard Lagman, Executive-Vice President of Ross, has announced the introduction of a new Model of its Double Planetary Mixer. The new model is designated as the "DPM-R" and is available in many sizes up to 750 gallons working capacity.
The "DPM-R" is typically used for the vacuum mixing of high viscosity materials. This model incorporates a reverse hydraulic lift, to enable convenient discharge from the raised mixing position. This design also allows the permanent connection of vacuum and feed lines to the fixed position vacuum hood.
The Double Planetary Mixer contains two helical mixing blades that revolve on their own axis, as well as on a common axis. The mix pattern ensures that all materials in the vessel are intermixed within a few minutes. Many optional features are available including three separate mix blade designs, jackets for heating or cooling, variable speed drives, sanitary construction and discharge systems to assist in the unloading of highly viscous materials.
