Lancaster Products manufactures high shear mixers for the efficient preparation of bentonite bonded molding sand. The Lancaster low intensity muller style mixers are used for molding sand preparation in the foundry industry.
A complete molding sand system design and supply by Lancaster Products can provide a single source solution for the end foundry user. Click here to learn more about our high shear mixers.
The advantages of the Lancaster Products system:
- Excellent flowability of mixed sand
- Uniform strength values due to the consistent mixing process
- Compactability requirements for the sand can be met on a consistent basis
- Distribution of water in an efficient manner when added to the mixture
- Consistent mixing of the return sand, additives and new sand in the Lancaster High Shear Mixer
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.
We are very thankful for all the positive feedback we’ve received over the past 30 years of enhancing materials processing projects for our clients with our high shear mixers. So, we decided to highlight some of the reasons our customers choose to partner with Lancaster Products to optimize their industrial mixing and pelletizing processes.
