These double planetary mixers have a slightly tilted configuration for more effective and complete discharge of flowable products. The versatile mixers are used in the preparation of pastes and gels, as well as granulations and free-flowing dried powder blends. Pictured is a 15-gal double planetary mixer designed to operate at approximately a 5-degree top forward tilt. An air/oil hydraulic lift is supplied to raise/lower the stirrers into the removable vacuum-rated mix can. During mixing, a glass sight/charge port and tank light on the vacuum hood allow the operator to check on the batch and conveniently add raw materials without interrupting the agitation. Stainless steel 316 rectangular stirrer blades are driven by a 5-HP inverter-duty motor. Detachable sidewall and bottom scrapers are also supplied.
