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.
The key to our success is our commitment to innovation and quality.Our team of engineers and highly skilled manufacturing employees, design and build material processing equipment to meet our customer’s specific requirements.

Our last post focused on our experience in concept testing and how it applies to our high shear mixer sample testing process. This post will dig in a little deeper and provide insight into the breadth of data we provide to our customers when they commission Lancaster Products to provide sample testing for them.
Over the past 30 years, we have collaborated with our customers to perform proof of concept testing in our K1 laboratory mixers for thousands of materials samples. The desired outcome of the testing is customer dependent but typical requirements are along the lines of pelletizing/granulating to specific size ranges and desired yields, mixing to achieve homogenization, or reduced reaction times of existing processes. Outcomes provided are 1) proof of concept in achieving the desired product, and/or 2) optimization of the current mix processes. Our engineers perform the tests in our controlled laboratory, log all key information in our database, and share all data with our customers for future reference. Below is a list that summarizes some of the information we collect during every test run we perform:read more
