The Double Planetary Mixers from Ross, Charles & Son are offered in 4-, 5-, 10-, and 25-gallon models for pilot-scale production of highly-filled pastes, dough-like materials, shear-sensitive gels, granulations, and powder blends.

The Double Planetary Mixers from Ross, Charles & Son are offered in 4-, 5-, 10-, and 25-gallon models for pilot-scale production of highly-filled pastes, dough-like materials, shear-sensitive gels, granulations, and powder blends. These mixers are also used for vacuum drying of heat-sensitive applications at relatively low temperatures. The blades are ideal for heavy-duty mixing of viscous materials up to six million centipoise, and the helical curve and graduated down-thrust cross-section of the high viscosity blades prevent product from climbing up into the cover. The mixers vacuum capability allows users to remove air from the batch before starting the agitators or during the mixing cycle, which results in a smooth void-free finished product without the need for additional defoaming or deaeration post-mixing.
