These 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.
