Ross Introduces New Double Planetary Mixer
Bogard Lagman, Executive-Vice President of Ross has announced the introduction of a new Model of its well known Double Planetary Mixer. The new model is designated as the "DPM" and is available in many sizes from 1/2 pint to 750 gallons working capacity. The "DPM" can incorporate a new patented "HV" blade design. This blade configuration allows use of the mixer for materials having a viscosity up to approx. 6 million centipoise, compared to approx. 1.5 million centipoise for the older models. The blade was designed to produce excellent axial and radial flow, while operating at close blade to bowl clearance. The close blade to bowl design prevents the buildup of material on the tank wall and ensures efficient heat transfer when used with a jacketed mixing vessel. Further information can be obtained by calling the Ross Mixing Hotline at 1-800-243-ROSS, or by accessing our website at www.mixers.com. The website includes animation of both the conventional rectangular blades, and the new "HV" blade design.
