MixerDirect is founded on the idea that you can size and select your own mixing equipment. Here you can sort through one of the largest lines of mixers, impellers, containers and accessories in the industry—-250 different mixer designs and over 1,000 products—- we can even rapidly customize a mixer for you.
The DP1 was made to be an alternative to the high priced small disperser. As we spoke to customers, we noticed companies were limiting their testing because they didn't want to make the investment in a lab disperser. They would limp along with their low power stirrer, without the ability to fully model their production process. To combat this, we wanted to make a dissolver under $3,000, but keep all of the quality elements of the high priced models in place. So we came up with a design that was very robust but simple. The motor and controller are bolted to one another utilizing the cooling of the TEFC motor by pumping air across the cooling fins of the controller. The controls are right in front of you and not on a separate side pedestal, saving yet another non-functional structural piece. Rather than using a bearing system for the up and down motion of the mixer, we used telescoping tubing and an air cylinder. A simple design but still functioning with the quality level of its $8,000 competitor. The DP1 has a speed range of 0-5000 rpm, handles 1/2-3 horsepower, with air drive and explosion proof options. The unit has the versatility of a lab stirrer as well, with many different impeller options; a propeller, ultra shear, dispersion, pumping blade, and a rotor stator head. The DP1 will handle up to 5 gallons of lower viscosity liquids allowing for small production runs in 5 gallon pails. Also consider that we have a full disperser line from the DP1-DP6 so as your company grows you can scale in such a way that you can use the same tip speeds, the same geometry, and achieve the same results.
