Charles Ross & Son Co. offers the DPM-150, a 150-gallon double planetary mixer with advanced high-viscosity processes. The mixer features patented high-viscosity blades, interchangeable jacketed vessels, electrohydraulic lift, recipe controls with data logger, and an all-stainless steel sanitary, dust-tight design. The two identical blades move in a planetary motion, rotating on their own axes as they orbit a common axis. In 36 revolutions around the vessel, the two blades pass through every point in the product zone, physically contacting the entire batch, the company explains. The DPD works with thick, sticky or putty-like materials and when mixing high-viscosity products greater than 2 million centipoise, the blades impart a kneading action to the batch, smoothing out its consistency and breaking up any agglomerates.
