The Crossover 1540 overhead mixer (photo) features a 0.5-hp motor delivering 3,000 N∙cm of torque for effective mixing in large laboratory, pilot-scale and small production volumes. The portable Crossover is designed to mix up to 200-L (50-gal) drum volumes from 50 to 1,500 rpm, with the option of clockwise or counterclockwise rotation. New to this product is the resistive touchscreen, allowing operation without removing gloves, which displays speed, time and torque during operation. Installation requires only a standard 120-V cord set and four-bolt mounting, and the mixer is said to be maintenance free. Mounting options include a C-clamp that is compatible with the side of a drum or a vertical plate, or a plate mount for a more permanent or custom installation. Other accessories that are available include large 4- and 6-in. propellers and shafts, as well as replaceable touchscreen protector covers. — Caframo Lab Solutions, Georgian Bluffs, Ont., Canada
