Mixing: Planetary Mixing & Discharging in a Sanitary Turnkey System
Common stainless steel workbench holds both the mixer and a matching discharge system.
Ross’ Double Planetary Mixer is now available in a “super sanitary” turnkey configuration, featuring a common stainless steel workbench for both the mixer and a matching discharge system. On the sanitary 4-gal Double Planetary Mixer & Discharge System Model DPM/DS-4S shown, both interior and exterior stainless steel surfaces are type 316, with a 150-grit finish and electropolished. Its jacketed mixing vessel and special high viscosity blades are a dynamic combination for producing thick gels, pastes, putties and other semi-solids under precise temperatures. Fully sealed gearbox and stirrer shafts ensure complete cleanability and eliminate cross-contamination between batches. This system is scalable through 1000-gal production models.
