Technical Brief: Hybrid Planetary Mixers Produce High Viscosity Mixtures With Ultra-Fine Dispersion Quality

Hybrid planetary mixers are utilized for creating fine dispersions in viscous mixtures, typically within the viscosity range of 100,000 to 2 million cP. Intense mixing is applied to the product by constantly advancing a high speed disperser and a low speed stirrer into the batch. Solids are quickly incorporated into the viscous bulk material and agglomerates are dispersed regardless of product flow characteristics. Designs for multiple planetary stirrers and disperser blades are available for more demanding applications.
