Planetary Dissolver Mixer
Planetary dissolver mixers have very versatile applications. They have two separate drives, which allows the slow-moving planetary mixing tool to be operated independently of the high-speed dissolver.
Both rotational speeds are infinitely variable, therefore enabling the operator to define the mixture treatment. With the support of the dissolver, high shear forces can be applied to the product. The planetary stirring tool effectuates good mixing results even in high viscosity processes. In addition, a rotating wall scraper ensures the product remains in the centre of the container at all times during the mixing process.
Instead of a dissolver other high speed stirrers can, of course, be applied, such as pitched blade impellers. Often a pitched blade impeller is combined with a dissolver, which ensures flow in the direction of the dissolver.
