Paul N. Gardner Co.’s PM-5 air mixer features a lid-mounted motor and locking ring to securely hold the lid in place. The handle and side-mounted ¾” dispensing valve are designed to simplify mobility and material transfer.

The mixer includes a painted steel pail. A 10” shaft attaches to the 5” three-blade, square pitch propeller with set screws and is constructed of 316 stainless steel. The ¾-hp air motor provides maximum power when supplied with 100 psi at 30 cfm, the company says. The air valve provides speed control from 0 to 3,000 rpm. According to the company, air motors are lighter than electric models and deliver variable speed for maximum flexibility or multiple applications.
