Nerpco USA L.L.C. has unveiled its NM-38 (1 pound—0.62 liter) batch mixer, which follows the same design as the NM-100 (3-pound batch) and the NM-270 (7-pound batch) mixers.
All of Nerpco's mixers utilize hydraulic drives, the company said, which results in variable bi-directional rotor speeds from zero to their maximum. Additionally, the NM-38 has a chrome-plated drilled body with a hinged discharge side, chrome-plated Viscoseals (Dust Stops), stainless steel hopper, a lubrication system with pressurized oil, temperature control, 25 micron filtration to the anti-friction spherical roller bearings and connecting gears. Nerpco claims it reduces the cost of operating a laboratory by multiple thousands of dollars. The Nerpco Mixer line covers a range of 1 to 285 pound batches. The unit is offered with PLC or standard electric relay controls.
