High Shear Mixing Results

We produce the most efficient and effective mixing technology available today: high shear counter-current mixing – yielding higher throughput, more homogenous outputs and the flexibility of a one-step granulation and pelletization machine.

GAME CHANGING MIXING TECHNOLOGY

ONE STEP PELLETIZING/ GRANULATING SYSTEMS

  • Increased yields, much higher throughput, and better mixing productivity
  • Diverse mixing and pelletizing applications
  • Rugged, dependable, and world-class equipment
  • Homogenize powdered materials of different densities quicker and more effectively
  • Create homogeneous pellets that consistently deliver precise ingredient formulations
  • Deliver pellet size range tight tolerances and higher yields than possible with most other machinery
  • Alter the pellet size range from batch to batch with no changes to formulation or equipment to create products for different markets

What to Expect from Lancaster Products High Shear Mixer Sample Testing

Our last post focused on our experience in concept testing and how it applies to our high shear mixer sample testing process. This post will dig in a little deeper and provide insight into the breadth of data we provide to our customers when they commission Lancaster Products to provide sample testing for them.

Over the past 30 years, we have collaborated with our customers to perform proof of concept testing in our K1 laboratory mixers for thousands of materials samples. The desired outcome of the testing is customer dependent but typical requirements are along the lines of pelletizing/granulating to specific size ranges and desired yields, mixing to achieve homogenization, or reduced reaction times of existing processes. Outcomes provided are 1) proof of concept in achieving the desired product, and/or 2) optimization of the current mix processes. Our engineers perform the tests in our controlled laboratory, log all key information in our database, and share all data with our customers for future reference. Below is a list that summarizes some of the information we collect during every test run we perform:

Introducing Lancaster Products High Shear Counter-Current Mixer Recipe Development

Introducing Lancaster Products High Shear Counter-Current Mixer Recipe Development, the first in a category of posts designed to provide insight into our deep experience in developing thousands of pelletized and granulated formulations over the past 30 years.

We develop custom recipes or mix designs for our customers that are rooted in our deep mixing and pelletizing experience. Because every customer’s materials, parameters and processes are different, each requires a unique mix design. In performing proof of concept testing, we have worked with our customers on a wide variety of materials and binder combinations across many different industries. While specific formulations belong to our customers, we have learned a tremendous amount from our experiences with various materials and we wanted to highlight the science that goes into every formulation developed by our materials processing engineers.

The Role of Binders in High Shear Mixing, Pelletizing, and Granulating

Binders are a key ingredient in agglomerating, granulating and pelletizing applications. Considered an inactive ingredient, Binders are critical in allowing for agglomeration and holding the structure of the pellets together. Many of our customers are pleasantly surprised of how efficiently the Lancaster High Shear Counter Current Mixer can pelletize utilizing low amounts of binders when compared to alternate methods of granulation. The advantage lies in the Lancaster Mixer’s ability to rapidly homogenize tiny amounts of minor ingredients into large amounts of majors. Because the binder is so efficiently dispersed throughout the mix, only the optimal amount of binder is used. Less effective mixing techniques require more binder than in a Lancaster Mixer, because the binder is not as effectively dispersed throughout the mix.
