What Mixer Do I Use?
It is very important to choose the right mixer for your job. Here are a few pointers to help you choose the right Plunge Mixer.
The mixer needs to be small enough to keep submerged in the mix.The mixer needs to be large enough to move the mix throughout the container. When mixing thicker mixes that have settled you need to be able to start at the top of the mix and push into the settled material in the bottom. When you start going into the fluid part of the liquid at the top the mixer needs to be submerged before starting, or splashing may occur.Sometimes in this situation you may need to start with a smaller mixer and once the settlement is loosened you can go to a larger mixing head. Choose your R.P.M. carefully. Mixing at too high of speed can cause splashing or injury. Wear safety glasses when mixing at all times.
