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
Lancaster Products High Shear Counter-Current Mixers are highly effective in their ability to mix and pelletize in one machine and one process, but Lancaster Mixers are also built to last. Many of our machines are still operating after decades of use. We continue to supply parts to many vintage year machines still in operation.
Lancaster Products machines are built with a robust construction that provides structural durability and are designed to allow for replacement of wear parts as needed to extend the operational life of our machines instead of total machine replacement. To our customers this translates to lower Total Cost of Ownership and higher return on investment than other mixers. With proper maintenance, Lancaster Products mixers are very long-lived machines.read more
