Lancaster Products is a solutions company dedicated to improving material mixing and processing. We design and build mixing, pelletizing and crushing solutions for a wide variety of industries and materials
Lancaster Products upholds a rich history of innovation and quality for mixing equipment that traces back to 1930 to Lancaster Iron Work’s Mixer Division. We are proud to be a leader in the most efficient and effective mixing technology available today: high shear counter-current mixing – yielding higher throughout, more homogenous outputs and the flexibility of one-step granulation and pelletization.
Lancaster Products serves diverse industries, such as flat panel glass, ceramics, fertilizers, proppants and catalysts. Our flagship K-Series High Shear Counter Current Mixer is a versatile machine that is capable of working with a wide range of materials. The Lancaster Mixer produces a superior mixing action with the ability to pelletize in one process, providing our customers with a high return on their investment. In addition to these unique capabilities, Lancaster Products equipment is rugged, dependable, and quality machinery that can endure the harshest of plant environments.

Lancaster Products is dedicated to optimizing our customers’ mixing processes and recipes. This 3 part video series will focus on our on-site lab and testing capabilities. In this first video, we demonstrate proof of concept testing with a chicken litter material for a fertilizer product.
We use our K1 lab mixer during these initial tests. We load the K1 mixer with the test material and then program the steps and feeds. After the mixer begins, we add a liquid binder to it to allow the material to agglomerate into granules or larger pellets.
Rotary table feeders act as a critical piece of equipment in Lancaster Mixers continuous batch processing lines. They provide a mechanical conduit to continuously meter and feed materials from each batch of material processed to the next process in line. The cone and cylinder over the table is used as a surge hopper to temporarily store the material batch while the table feeder continuously discharges the material. Their role may seem simple compared to the processing equipment they’re connected to, but is significant to maintaining continuous throughput and ensuring overall system performance.
Lancaster Products’ high shear mixers process materials in batches which allows for tight control over the physical properties of the end product and thus, higher on-size, homogeneous yields. Most batches are processed completely and ready for discharge in a matter of minutes. By positioning a Lancaster rotary table feeder under the mixer’s discharge chute and feeding product downstream to the next piece of equipment, the batch processing is converted to a continuous process.
