This company’s double planetary mixers are now available with a slightly tilted configuration of the stirrers to effect more effective and complete discharge of flowable products. Double planetary mixers are used in the preparation of pastes and gels, as well as granulations and free-flowing dried powder blends. The new configuration offers a 5-deg top forward tilt and an air-oil hydraulic lift system to raise and lower the stirrers into the unit’s removable, vacuum-rated mix can. The rectangular stirring blades are constructed of 316 stainless steel, and are driven by a 5-hp inverter-duty motor. Detachable sidewall and bottom scrapers are also supplied. The mixing vessel has a heating and cooling jacket and temperatures are measured by a thermowell on the side of the mix can. The raised base provides a 28-in. clearance beneath the outlet and is suitable for 12-in.-dia. receiving vessels. — Charles Ross and Son Co., Hauppage, N.Y.
