There’s no better time than now to purchase the capital equipment you know you will need before the end of the year. By taking advantage of the Section 179 Deduction and Bonus Depreciation you will enjoy significant savings from your equipment purchases. This is a use-it-or-lose it write off that ends December 31, 2017, so get off the hump and place your orders now to ensure delivery before the end of the year.

Section 179 at a Glance for 2017
2017 Deduction Limit = $500,000
This deduction is good on new and used equipment, as well as off-the-shelf software. To take the deduction for tax year 2017, the equipment must be financed/purchased and put into service between January 1, 2017 and the end of the day on December 31, 2017.
2017 Spending Cap on equipment purchases = $2,000,000
This is the maximum amount that can be spent on equipment before the Section 179 Deduction available to your company begins to be reduced on a dollar for dollar basis. This spending cap makes Section 179 a true “small business tax incentive”.
Bonus Depreciation: 50% for 2017
Bonus Depreciation is effective through 2019. Businesses of all sizes are able to depreciate 50% of the cost of equipment acquired and put in service by December 31, 2017. It is generally taken after the Section 179 spending cap is reached and is available for new equipment only. Bonus depreciation will phase down to 40% in 2018 and 30% in 2019.
Here is an updated example of Section 179 at work during this 2017 tax year.

The above is an overall, “simplified” view of the Section 179 Deduction for 2017. For more details on limits and qualifying equipment, as well as Section 179 Qualified Financing, please visit www.section179.org

The Effect of Rotor Styles on High Shear Mixing

In addition to the rotating pan, all high shear mixers manufactured by Lancaster Products larger than a K3.5 have two independently motor driven mixing tools inside the pan which are responsible for proper mixing, pelletizing, and granulating of materials: the plow and the high speed rotor.  The plow continually sweeps the entire surface of the pan bottom to prevent material from accumulating on the bottom and enhances the overall mixing action.  However, the most important tool of all is the high-speed rotor, which rotates counter direction to the pan causing a shearing action inside of the mixing cavity.  This high-speed rotor not only agitates the mixture, but significantly influences the control of the entire process.  While there are just two main style of standard rotors, we can custom configure the rotor to optimize all mixing processes.
