The Lancaster High Shear Mixer provides a higher quality mix of friction materials for typical clutch and brake pad application. The higher intensity mixing action results in a more homogeneous mixture and a reduction in the total processing time required.

Lancaster Products can provide a single source solution for the end friction materials user. Click here to learn more about our high shear mixers.

The Lancaster High Shear Mixer can be used to produce the required friction lining batches with the following properties:

  • A mixture that is more homogeneous than a low intensity mixer.
  • The level of intensity can be adjusted to meet the needs for the final mixture.
  • Capable of mixing the raw materials even when they include the addition of a fiber component.

Lancaster Products Announces Updates to Low Shear Mixers

We are excited to announce several recent improvements to the design of our low shear mixer product line. These mixers are often pushed beyond the limits of other mixers due to their widespread use in mixing dusty, abrasive, corrosive, highly viscous or explosive materials. The enhancements listed below were designed to improve the performance of our low shear mixers and to minimize maintenance and repair costs, which lowers the overall lifetime cost of ownership for our clients.

  1. Split drivetrain: pan and tooling on separate drives

The counter-rotating pan and tooling are now operating on separate drives allowing for individual control of tool and pan speeds. This simple split drive design provides increased flexibility to customize mixing recipes for different materials as compared to a single vertical shaft. Maintenance and trouble- shooting of issues relating to the pan or tooling also become easier.
