The robust design includes a heavy-duty fabricated gearbox designed for stability
The Ross Double Planetary Mixer is used for precision mixing, granulation and vacuum drying, along with rugged applications requiring a high degree of torque. Patented high viscosity blades work in tandem to knead and mix from a vertical orientation, augmented by large shafts and bearing spreads, a suitable combination for tough-to-mix formulations up to 6 million cP or higher, the company says.
The robust design includes a heavy-duty fabricated gearbox designed for stability and smooth planetary movement of the stirrers as they orbit a common axis. The machines are used in many process industries and can remain in service for over 60 years of continuous usage, Ross claims. Shown are two 200-gallon ROSS Model DPM-200.
