Lancaster Products Pug Mills simply and economically blend and feed a wide variety of materials and additives.
Lancaster Products Pug Mills are custom designed to meet your exact job requirements. They are available in a variety of construction materials. Lancaster Products Pug Mills are available in sizes ranging from the small 1/20 hp laboratory mixer, up to 300 ton/hour with our large twin shaft production models.
How It Works
Lancaster Products Pug Mills are designed for continuous operation. Primary materials are introduced to the charging end of the Lancaster Products Pug Mill. The rotating pug mill shaft and blade assemblies mix the materials as they are transported through the pug mill. Additional liquids or other additives can be introduced during the mixing of the materials through the process. The mixed material is continuously discharged from the exit port of the mixer. The Lancaster Products Pug Mill can be used to mix or cool materials as well as transporting materials.
Lancaster Products Pug Mills are rigidly constructed of structural and plate steel. The pug mill shafts and blades are made of high strength alloy steels. Collapsible type wear-resisting blades, replaceable wear resistant liners, and heating jackets are available. Lancaster Pug Mills are individually designed to meet your specific application needs.
The rotating shafts are available in either single or double shaft configurations. The replaceable mixing blades are pitch variable and can be fixed blade or break-away blade construction. The blades are also available in various shapes and materials of construction and coatings.
The Pug Mills are available with a variety of attachments for adding dry or wet additives to the mix or for heating/cooling of the mix. Manual or automatic material storage and handling systems can also be provided.
Quality workmanship and materials result in minimum maintenance and insure trouble-free performance through years of service. From engineering to finished product, Lancaster Pug Mills represent your best value.

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
Lancaster Products is dedicated to process and mix design optimization. Whether you are looking to develop a new process/product or improve on an existing process, Lancaster Products can help. From mixing to granulating or pelletizing, our experienced application engineers can design toward many objectives, including: mixing cycle times, binder and minors optimization, homogeneity, particle hardness, moisture and air entrainment, particle size distributions and yields.read more
