The NEMA 4X control panel shown on this particular mixer includes a 6” color touch screen linked to a 30HP Variable Frequency Drive. Speed, power load and cycle time are all controlled and displayed from this screen. Two-hand raise/lower controls for the air/oil hydraulic lift are also located on the panel for opening and closing the mixer. With the blades in the fully raised position, they are completely accessible for easy cleaning while the portable mix can is removed from under the mixer and rolled into the discharging area. The vessel is supplied with lift trunnions so it can be raised and tilted for fast transfer of the finished product.
Maintenance and risk of product contamination are very low in a Double Planetary Mixer as there are no shaft seals, bearings, packing glands and stuffing boxes submerged in the product zone. Available in both industrial and sanitary configurations, the Double Planetary Mixer is built from half-pint to 750-gallon capacities.
