Heavy-Duty Double Planetary Mixers

Ross manufactures double planetary mixers for heavy-duty mixing of viscous formulations up to about 6 million cP. Many processes that used to rely on horizontal sigma blade mixers (kneaders) are now routinely produced in change-can double planetary mixers. An advantage to this vertical mixer design is the absence of any shaft seals, bearings, packing glands, or stuffing boxes in the product zone. In addition, the agitators are raised and lowered in/out of the mix vessel by a hydraulic lift, enabling easy access for cleaning between batches. Mix vessels are interchangeable and can be dedicated to a particular formulation, further reducing the risk of cross-contamination.
