Lancaster Products has extensive experience in mixing, blending and agglomerating building materials. The Lancaster Mixer is a durable machine that is perfectly suited for processing a wide variety of quality building materials such as dry mortar, grout, concrete, specialty concrete products, clay and lightweight build aggregate.
Lancaster Products High Shear Mixers produce superior repeatable results for quality materials. The intensive blending action imparts a tremendous amount of energy into the mix allowing for more homogenous mixes and shorter processing times than can be achieved with conventional ribbon or paddle mixers.
Due to the high energy generated from the mixing tools in a Lancaster High Shear Mixer, we are able to blend multiple grout components including very small portions of colorant to ensure a homogeneous mixture is created in every batch processed.
A complete system design can be accomplished to include raw material feed systems, bulk bag unloading equipment, day storage bins, batching and weighing systems, mixing and controlled feed to the bagging system.
Lancaster Products Mixers are used to produce UHPC (Ultra High-Performance Concrete). Our mixers are used for concrete testing for many state highway departments. Because of the excellent mixing characteristics of the Lancaster Mixer, there is an improved distribution of cement and pigments within the mixture. Our mixers produce an excellent consistency and quality thereby reducing flaws in high visibility facing concrete.
Lancaster Mixers excel at providing superior homogeneity, final chemistry, economy of moisture, and overall efficiency in the manufacturing process. Lancaster Mixers are used to produce a wide variety of clay products through both clay body process and extrusion processes. In addition, the pelletizing, high intensive action of the Lancaster Products Mixer is being employed to produce cutting-edge products such as high strength clay body proppants and clay filaments for robotic additive manufacturing.
Pottery Clay Body Products
- Architectural terra cotta
- Clay piping
Complete batch system designs include formulation adjustment controls to accommodate a wide range of formulations within in a single Lancaster Products Mixer. Consistent blending of multiple clays, including very small portions of colorant, ensure a repeatable homogeneous mixture for every batch processed. Lancaster Mixers are used to blend raw materials to produce expanded clay products for use commercial decorating or as a lightweight aggregate in the building industry.
Specialty Epoxy Preparation
Lancaster High Shear Mixers are the perfect tool for specialty epoxy blending. Our Lancaster mixing technology, is used for custom color flooring system additives where consistently repeatable colors and textures are required.
Specialty Concrete Preparation
Lancaster Products Mixers are the perfect tool for specialty cement blending. Spray applications of these blends have been used in the process of reinforcing tunnel walls.
Through the efficient homogeneous blending of cement with fly ash additives, our mixing technology promotes high strength concrete possessing the attributes of improved workability, reduced process water demand, as well as minimum shrinkage and permeability.
Our Lancaster Products Mixer high intensive blending technology promotes consistently repeatable colored cement & stucco products.

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
