HSM-03V benchtop lift mixers feature automatic torque control, allowing them to mix high- or low-viscosity materials, or perform high-speed dispersions, with a single mixer.

A 3-hp DC motor provides constant torque, allowing mix viscosities exceeding 100,000 CPS to be achieved with the supplied bowtie-style impeller. Marine-style, hydrofoil, or turbine impellers can be used for materials with lower viscosities. Dispersion blades can be used for high-speed dispersions up to 50,000 CPS. An ABB Baldor DC speed control requires a 230 VAC power supply and features torque priority or speed priority modes. Standard speed range of 60-1,200 RPM can be changed to 135-2,800 RPM. This versatile, fully featured small batch mixer for up to 5 gal is ideal for use in product development labs or production environments across a range of food processing applications including mixing nut butters or cake frostings and dispersing xantham gum, as well as lower viscosity materials like blending salad dressings or specialty beverages.

Safety features built into the mixer include a limit switch that stops shaft rotation when the unit is raised to selected height. A limit switch stops shaft rotation if the container becomes insecure. A shaft guard limits access to the rotating shaft. A front-facing emergency stop button is easily accessible if needed.

A large stainless steel work surface with backsplash accommodates containers up to 5 gal. A container bracket with an easy hand knob retention system is easy to operate. The rigid carbon steel frame stands up to the most demanding applications. A gray enamel industrial finish is standard; white epoxy finish and sanitary impellers are available.
