Maximize mixing efficiency with a Planetary Mixer
Featured Product from Charles Ross and Son Company
High viscosity industrial mixtures, regardless of their end use or material composition, are largely prepared through planetary mixing. Finished products and intermediates in the form of pastes or gels, dough-like compounds and other semi-solids formulations share this common processing approach. Within this category, the classic Double Planetary Mixer (DPM) is arguably the most popularly used production-scale equipment. While some R&D labs do utilize commercially available Single Planetary Mixers, the use of such kitchen-style devices is fairly limited to laboratory and small scale volumes. In addition, Single Planetary Mixers cannot effectively handle highly viscous applications, especially materials that are too sticky, thick, heavy, or have a tendency to climb up the stirrer.
