Tilted Planetary Mixers.

Double Planetary Mixers are now offered with a slightly tilted configuration for more effective and complete discharge of flowable products. The versatile mixers can be used in the preparation of pastes and gels, as well as granulations and free-flowing dried powder blends. Pictured is a 15-gallon model designed to operate at approximately a 5-degree top forward tilt. An air and oil hydraulic lift is supplied to raise and lower the stirrers into the removable vacuumrated mix can. During mixing, a glass sight and 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. The 50-psig heating/cooling jacket on the vessel is insulated and sheathed in stainless steel. Batch temperature is measured from a thermowell with an RTD thermocouple on the side of the mix can. After the mixing cycle, product is discharged through a 3-inch diameter Teflon plug installed via heavy-duty tri-clover clamps towards the front of the mix can. The raised base provides a 28-inch clearance beneath the outlet and is suitable for 12-inch diameter receiving vessels. * Charles Ross & Son Co., Hauppauge, NY 11788. www.mixers.com or call 800-243-ROSS
