Catering to customer-specified process and application requirements, two 150-gal Model DPM-150 double planetary mixers include patented high-viscosity blades, interchangeable jacketed vessels, electrohydraulic lift, recipe controls with data logger, and an all-stainless steel sanitary, dust-tight design.
These double planetary mixers consist of two identical blades that move in a planetary motion, rotating on their own axes as they orbit a common axis. In only 36 revolutions around the vessel, the two blades pass through every point in the product zone, physically contacting the entire batch. Its ability to turnover thick, sticky, or putty-like materials with great efficiency makes the DPM a standard workhorse in many industries. When mixing high-viscosity products upwards of two million centipoise (cP), the blades impart a kneading action to the batch, smoothing out its consistency and breaking up any agglomerates.
