This dispersing mixer also has a proprietary planetary design

The PowerMix Model PDM-10 (photo) combines high-speed dispersion with planetary stirring action, imparting high shear to tough-to-mix applications with low flowability. Beyond a traditional kneading action, the mixing mechanism of this proprietary planetary design is appropriate for heavy pastes and slurry-like media that may include a considerable amount of powders that must be wetted out and dispersed uniformly. These 10-gal models feature an additional sawtooth blade on each disperser shaft, doubling the shear input capacity of the mixer. For more viscous applications prone to climbing up the stirrer, patented High Viscosity (HV) blades are available and offer a helical curvature that pushes product forward and downward. Fully automated recipe controls and data-acquisition systems are also available. — Charles Ross & Son Co., Hauppauge, N.Y.
