Charles Ross & Son Company offers the PowerMix Model PDM-10, which imparts high shear to tough-to-mix applications with low flowability. Beyond a traditional kneading action, the mixing mechanism of this proprietary planetary design is ideal for heavy pastes and slurry-like applications involving a considerable amount of powders that need to be wetted out and dispersed uniformly.
These 10-gallon models feature an additional sawtooth blade on each disperser shaft, doubling the shear input capacity of the mixer. A rectangular stirrer orbits the vessel, exposing the entire batch contents to the shearing action of the dispersers. For more viscous applications prone to climbing up the stirrer, patented High Viscosity (“HV”) blades offer a helical curvature, which pushes product forward and downward.
