If you’ve ever watched a flat-screen television or used a smart phone there’s a good chance the glass showing the picture was made by machinery developed and produced by a Lancaster Products high shear mixer in Lebanon, Pennsylvania.

Lancaster Products designs and manufactures mixers and glass crushers used in glass processing and recycling to meet the ultra-critical specifications demanded by electronics manufacturers.  The materials used to manufacture LCD and OLED  glass must meet very critical specifications including homogeneity of particle size and chemistry in order to demonstrate the properties required for proper functionality as an end product.  The glass used in television sets and cell phones is extremely thin, less than the thickness of a sheet of paper.  Two pieces are used to form LCD (liquid crystal display) and LED (light-emitting diode) screens which are used in cell phones, flat-screen monitors and televisions.

Lancaster Products’ connection to television glass began in 1992, when we were approached to develop a mixer for a new process to make high-precision flat-panel glass for LCD televisions.  Fast forward a few decades and the ‘cell phone revolution’ emerged increasing the demand for flat panel glass in the ever-evolving electronics industry.  As the demand for flat panel  glass took off in the consumer market, Lancaster Products has been at the forefront, producing equipment for the industry.   Curt Snyder, President of Lancaster Products, notes that a vast majority of the world’s thin glass is processed by Lancaster equipment.  “Our mixers and crushers have become a staple for the production of flat panel glass.  It has been a fantastic market and we are gracious to be a vital part of such an important global market”, says Snyder.

Infographic: Optimize Your Fertilizer Pelletizing Process

Many fertilizer processing facilities were originally setup with 5 or more large pieces of processing equipment systematically connected with conveyors for a minimum of 9 pieces of equipment to convert raw materials into fertilizer. The amount of work, energy, and maintenance that goes into maintaining a complex system like this is very costly.

Lancaster Products can optimize existing fertilizer pelletizing plants or establish new fertilizer processing facilities. Our counter-current, high shear mixers have several product and operating advantages over the complex, traditional systems.

Lancaster Products Multi Tool Mixing Advantage

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.
