Planetary Mixer - Atlas LP402

Taiwanese Flag Graphic

Robust, dependable, and utterly versatile the LP402 cake mixer from Atlas is powerful enough to tackle a wide range of creamy and dense mixtures and what's more, with a 50 litre capacity bowl it can do it on large scale too. Ingredients such as flour, fats, salts, yeasts and liquids are no problem and with a powerful 1.5hp, single-phase motor, and 3-speed, belt driven gearbox anything from cake and brownie mixes through to meringue and pizza dough can be mixed with ease. Made to be floor-standing, its condensed design means that it won't take up oodles of precious floor space either.

Designed with the user in mind

Everything has been thought of when it comes to design and this particular cake mixer is about as user-friendly as it gets. For example the dough mixer, paddle beater, and whisk (which all come as standard) are easily attached and removed in seconds. The bowl is made of stainless steel and the planetary mixer is both food standard compliant and easy to clean. The winding wheel which moves the bowl up and down does so with effortless precision and, while doing so, you can have complete control over the mixing depth. This ensures the correct mixing consistency is achieved every time. When it comes to cleaning, the heavy metal body of the LP402 can easily be wiped down with a damp cloth as it contains no LCD components or displays. Finally the lack of PC boards or electric circuits which could malfunction means that servicing and maintenance is a breeze too.

Handling capabilities

The 50 litre stainless steel bowl can handle up to 15kgs of dry mix and up to 24kgs of wet mix with a minimum of 55% liquid content so it's perfect for busy café's, confectioners, pizzerias, restaurants or small-scale bakeries. The robust design of this Atlas LP402 mixer ensures that it keeps on working and won't let you down.

  • Why should I use a Fork Mixer?
  • What is a Double Arm Mixer
  • What is a Planetary Mixer?
  • What is a Spiral Mixer?

The simple answer is, "a fork mixer will not heat up your dough in the mixing process". A fork mixer has a free spinning bowl and a two pronged agitator that can run at both slow, and fast speed. It is gentle on dough as it mixes, but the mix times are longer when compared to a spiral mixer. But because of the gentle action on the dough, this will help you manage the dough temperature, and achieve your goal temperature. This will result in a higher quality dough that is not heated.

The double arm mixer was one of the first electric mixers. It mixes gently and slowly, which essentially copies the motion of hand mixing. Because the agitation is gentle, the resulting dough is very close in characteristics to that of dough produced by hand mixing. Not much time will be saved in production as it is a slow mix..

The planetary mixer is an all-purpose workhorse found in many bakeries. Planetary mixers are classified as cake mixers, and are not suitable for heavy dough development. Spiral, Fork, and Two arm mixers would be better suited if dough is all you need to make.

The spiral mixer is a single purpose mixer used only for bread and pizza dough development. The smaller spiral mixers, single phase, only have one speed. Most 3 phase spiral mixers have 2 speeds, slow and high speed. Spiral mixers are the preferred mixers of the bread bakers, and pizza makers of Europe. Many bakers see the spiral mixer as the choice that allows speed of production while maintaining control of oxidation and good treatment of the dough.
