Lancaster Products offers explosion proof mixers for high intensity mixing applications where the potential for explosions is present, such as mixing powders for 3D metal printing.  Most of our Lancaster Mixers can be designed to meet explosion proof requirements such as:

  1. The ability to pump inert gas (such as Nitrogen or Argon) into the mix chamber to replace the Oxygen and eliminate the potential for spark caused by the presence of Oxygen.
  2. Instrumentation added to verify the removal of Oxygen in the mix chamber.
  3. Stainless steel mix chamber to reduce the potential for sparking due to unintended metal to metal contact.
  4. Explosion proof instrumentation, junction boxes, and motors are available.

Contact us if you are concerned about the potential for explosions in your mix and we’ll help evaluate and design an explosion proof solution that meets your needs.
