Ross Ships Double Planetary Mixer & Discharge System


Charles Ross & Son Company recently completed a new design variation of the Double Planetary Mixer and Follower Plate Discharge System.

The Double Planetary is typically used for the mixing and dispersion of viscous materials. The Follower Plate Discharge System is then used to press viscous non-flowing materials from the planetary mixer mixing vessel after the mixing cycle is completed.

The new design combines the Double Planetary with the Follower Plate Discharge System on a common base. This configuration permits the easy movement of the mix can to the discharge platen, after completion of the mixing cycle. In addition, the common base is elevated to allow for discharge to subsequent processing equipment or directly to packaging containers. The two machines can be customized to meet a variety of process requirements including vacuum operation, jacketing of the mix can and discharge platen, metering systems, etc. Both are available in a wide range of sizes from 1- pint Laboratory to 750 gallon Production models.

Mixers and Discharge Systems are available for no-charge evaluation in the Ross Test & Development Center or for in plant trial rentals.
