New Mixers and Blenders Available from Ross

October 31, 2005

Ross has introduced a new model of the Double Planetary Mixer (DPM). The new half-pint working capacity unit is ideally suited for the bench-top research and development of highly viscous materials, up to approximately 6 million centipoise.
The DPM half-pint mixer is supplied with a vacuum, sight/charge port, light, jacketed mix vessel and a thermocouple to sense batch temperature. A complete control panel is also provided and includes a frequency inverter to control blade speeds, a batch cycle timer and temperature indication. All parts coming into contact with the product being mixed are constructed of type-316 stainless steel, and are polished to enable easy cleaning between batches.
The company also introduced a new line of sanitary ribbon blenders, designed for vacuum operation. The sanitary blenders are all manufactured in type-316 stainless steel and are polished to enable easy cleaning between batches. Agitators and shaft assemblies are designed and constructed with generous radius and smooth weld finishes. Shaft seal rings are readily accessible and easily removable to permit cleaning of all product zone surfaces.
These blenders include special cover openings, ports for viewing, jackets for heating or cooling and complete control systems. Sanitary ribbon blenders are available from stock in sizes from 1-120cu. ft. The units are available for sale or trial rental.
Ross Ribbon Blenders meet most industry standards for the food and pharmaceutical industries. More info: (800) 243-ROSS; Website: www.planetarymixers.com or www.ribbonblenders.com.
