Laboratory Double Planetary Mixers

Ross Laboratory Double Planetary Mixers (DPM's) are ideal for processing a wide range of applications including viscous pastes, putty-like materials, powder blends and granulations. Two identical blades rotate on individual axes while revolving around the vessel on a common axis. The gentle but thorough agitation is very effective for mixing shear-sensitive gels, fragile glass spheres, fiber-filled mixtures and abrasive compounds. This versatile mixer is also utilized for vacuum drying and solvent recovery.

Designed for R&D and pilot-scale production from 1/2 pint to 5 gallons, Ross Laboratory DPM’s are especially advantageous for products containing expensive raw materials or where only small quantities are batched due to limited demand or short pot life.

Standard, heavy-duty, explosion-proof and sanitary models are available. Popular features and options include sight/charge ports, video camera, helical High Viscosity “HV” blades, heating/cooling jacket, sidewall thermowell, cove plug valve, built-in vacuum pump, discharge system and touchscreen controls.
