Features

Lancaster Products’ high shear industrial mixers feature one-step pelletizing/granulating systems that produce increased yields with a much higher throughput, and better mixing productivity.  Our world-class mixing equipment is rugged and dependable and can be used for a wide array of diverse mixing and pelletizing applications.

Game Changing Mixing Technology

  • Mix and pelletize in one machine and one process
  • 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

Applications

We make high-throughput industrial mixing machines for customers in industries as diverse as ceramics, glass, refractories and proppants.  Our engineers and manufacturing team design, build, and support high-throughput material processing equipment to your specific requirements.

Materials Processing

Lancaster Products combines decades of mixing experience, working across multiple industries, with the finest granulating and pelletizing mixer technology.

Our line of high shear counter-current mixers can:

  • Mix and pelletize in the same operation, supplanting the need for multiple pieces of mixing and pelletizing equipment in a process
  • Rapidly homogenize multiple minor ingredients with majors in a mix resulting in higher quality products and reduced reaction times
  • Mix and granulate bulk material in a variety of industries including building materials, high performance ceramics, fertilizers, flat panel glass, refractory and recycling of waste materials.

Performance Features

  • All in ONE Machines – For Blending, Pelletizing, Granulating, Slurrying, Dissolving, De-Dusting and Reacting
  • Faster Mixing
  • Less Additives
  • No Dead Zones
  • Continual Material Removal
  • Works with a Variety of Materials
  • Variable Speeds

The Most Effective Mixing Technology

Our counter – current mixing action is the most effective mixing technology for rapid and consistent uniformity.

 

The rotating pan efficiently conveys material to secondary mixing plows and side wall scraper – all strategically placed to deliver maximum  material  mixing.

 

Designed for increased  relative particle velocities – provides countless material exchanges throughout each batch cycle.
High – Intensive Mixers adds versatility in meeting almost any material mixing challenge by individually changing component speeds.

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.
