Double planetary mixers come in a wide range of configurations and sizes ranging from ½ pint to 750 gallons and provide dependable mixing of thick, sticky, or putty-like materials. Sanitary double planetary mixer Model DPM-4S and sanitary discharge system Model DS-4S shown are fully customized and engineered for efficient processing of medical-grade silicone formulations in a portable workstation. Heavy-duty 4-gallon double planetary mixer features two patented high viscosity “HV” stirrer blades that rotate on their own axes while orbiting the mix vessel on a common axis with a slicing motion that pushes material forward and downward and is ideal for ultra-high viscosity materials. Designed for vacuum operation, the mixer is equipped with an electromechanical lift to raise/lower the vacuum hood and a 50-psig heating/cooling jacket on the mix can. All product contact parts are constructed from stainless steel type 316, 150-grit finish and electropolished. Operated through a 7-inch color touch screen interface, PLC recipe controls deliver superior batch-to-batch consistency in the mixing of high-solids, high-viscosity applications.
