Modification of Planetary Mixer with Strainer Arrangement
The stirrer of conventional machine rotates in one direction only which creates a specific flow pattern within the fluids hence the particles tend to stay to the walls of container owing to the force instead of mixing thoroughly in mixture of paint, ultimately results into poor quality mixture of paints there by poor quality output of paint . In order to possess a through mixing of metal oxide powder it might be appropriate to possess a stirrer that rotates such rotates about own axis also revolves about another fixed axis which helps it reach all parts of the container. This ensures that turbulence required for thorough mixing is provided all over the container. It would be advantageous to vary pattern of flow, which avoids vortex formation, i.e. motion of particles in a spiral path. Also if a wiper is added that brings the particles adhering to walls of container back to main flow or mixing area, good quality mixture are going to be ensured. The planetary mixer with strainer may be a perfect solution that has all the above mentioned features. This machine involves a rotating stirrer that revolves about the fixed container axis also as incorporates an strainer that changes the flow pattern and also acts as a wiper. Machine has variable mixing speed feature at an equivalent time delivers heavy torque to the stirrer for proper mixing.
