Air Drill: High torque low speed (500-600 rpm) 1/2″ Air Drill with a planetary gearing system used with a Jiffy Mixer required to properly mix the PLCS Encapsulation sealant. Common air drills with a single gear drive run at 2000 – 3000 rpm free air speed. These will not have enough power to mix the sealant, especially in cold weather.
1/2" Air Drill Part # 49-A3025
Jiffy Mixer: Used with the 1/2″ Air Drill (49-A3025) is a heavy-duty, extremely efficient stainless steel mixer designed to quickly and thoroughly mix PLCS Encapsulation sealant.
The mixer has two sets of specially welded blades. The vertical blades keep the mixing action between them. The horizontal blades move the sealant from the upper and lower areas of the container into the mixer head eliminating unwanted aeration. The leading edge of the lower horizontal blade will scrape the bottom of the mixing container to bring all settled material particles into the mixing head. All result in a thoroughly mixed Encapsulation sealant.
