Charles Ross and Son Company
Product name: Ross Planetary Dual Disperser Model PDDM
Attributes/comments: The new Ross Planetary Dual Disperser (PDDM) is ideal for powerful mixing of high viscosity applications requiring ultra-fine dispersion quality. The PDDM features four agitators – two planetary stirrers and two high-speed shafts – all rotating on their own axes while orbiting the mix vessel on a common axis. The saw-tooth blades on each high-speed shaft provide an intensive shearing action, promoting solids dispersion and particle size reduction. The planetary stirrers continually turnover batch material, help feed fresh product to the high-speed blades and facilitate uniform temperature throughout the mix zone. Shear levels and flow patterns in the PDDM are easily incorporated into viscous bulk material and stubborn agglomerates are dispersed regardless of product flow characteristics.
