Planetary Mixer/Planetary Mixers
Planetary Mixers/Planetary Mixers consist of two identical blades that move in a planetary motion, rotating at their own axes as they orbit a common axis.
In only 36 revolutions around the vessel, the two blades pass through every point in the product zone, physically contacting the entire batch. Its ability to turnover thick, sticky or putty-like materials with great efficiency makes the Planetary mixers a standard workhorse in many industries. When mixing high viscosity products upwards of 2 million centi poise (cP), the blades impart a kneading action to the batch, smoothing out its consistency and breaking up any agglomerates.
Wahal Engineers, over years has come up with a series of design developments, extending the capabilities of the original Planetary Mixer. The introduction of High Viscosity Blades raised the maximum viscosity range to around 6 million cP — a number of applications that previously required sigma blade kneaders are now mixed in Planetary Mixers offering better clean ability, smaller footprint and lower capital cost.
