Lancaster Products is proud to announce the successful inclusion of the Lancaster K-4 High Intensity Mixer in the pilot plant for LWP Technologies. Click here to see the August 27, 2015 press release from LWP Technologies, stage 2 of the commissioning of the pilot plant is complete with the successful production of green proppant and is moving forward into stage 3 with the dryer and kiln operation. The production of the green proppants in the pilot plant utilizing the Lancaster K-4 Mixer showed improved quality and sphericity over the initial R&D development testing.
Since the introduction of the original K-series mixer in 1986, Lancaster Products High Shear Mixers have been designed to produce the best mixing and pelletizing results for our customers. Lancaster Mixers superior performance is due to our multi-tool configuration, counter current mixing action and variable tooling speed capability. Multi Tool Configuration Lancaster Mixers can be configured with three independent variable speed mixing tools: the mixing rotor, the plow and the rotating pan. These three tools work in concert to provide the best mixing results. The primary mixing tool is the high-speed rotor. The plow and rotating pan both work to move material into the main rotor’s path. The three mixing tools are so efficient at mixing, there are no dead spots inside of the mixing cavity and every piece of material passes through the mixing rotor every few seconds. Additionally, a sidewall scraper is positioned against the pan sides to prevent caking and buildup of material on the pan itself.read more
