The 1-ft3, 42P-1SS model is constructed entirely of United States stainless steel type 304 with 150-grit interior finish and driven by a 1-hp, totally enclosed, fan-cooled motor.
Touchscreen programmable logic controller recipe controls are housed inside a National Electrical Manufacturers Association-classified 4X stainless steel enclosure, allowing for indoor or outdoor use.

Both paddle and ribbon agitators are used in the preparation of dry solid-solid mixes and can accommodate minor liquid additions.
