ROSS: Planetary Dual Disperser
July 2, 2014
Since introducing what was reportedly the world’s first change-can double planetary mixer in 1942, Ross has led in the development of technologies geared toward high-viscosity mixing. Today, the company’s planetary dual disperser (PDDM), the latest evolutionary product to emerge from the Ross family of planetary mixers, is reportedly expanding the processing capabilities of manufacturers around the globe. In less than a decade, the number of Ross planetary dual dispersers built has reached 1,000, due to rapid demand from various industries, including the battery, adhesives, sealants, coatings and composites markets.
Delivering a combination of high-speed mixing and kneading action never before achieved in traditional multi-agitator and planetary mixers, the PDDM can quickly incorporate solids into a viscous liquid vehicle and disintegrate undesirable agglomerates regardless of the product’s changing flow characteristics. Four independently-driven agitators constantly advance into the batch, contacting fresh material all the time and enabling uniform heat distribution.
