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.
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.

Lancaster Products is dedicated to optimizing our customers’ mixing processes and recipes. This 3 part video series will focus on our on-site lab and testing capabilities. In this first video, we demonstrate proof of concept testing with a chicken litter material for a fertilizer product.
We use our K1 lab mixer during these initial tests. We load the K1 mixer with the test material and then program the steps and feeds. After the mixer begins, we add a liquid binder to it to allow the material to agglomerate into granules or larger pellets.
Rotary table feeders act as a critical piece of equipment in Lancaster Mixers continuous batch processing lines. They provide a mechanical conduit to continuously meter and feed materials from each batch of material processed to the next process in line. The cone and cylinder over the table is used as a surge hopper to temporarily store the material batch while the table feeder continuously discharges the material. Their role may seem simple compared to the processing equipment they’re connected to, but is significant to maintaining continuous throughput and ensuring overall system performance.
Lancaster Products’ high shear mixers process materials in batches which allows for tight control over the physical properties of the end product and thus, higher on-size, homogeneous yields. Most batches are processed completely and ready for discharge in a matter of minutes. By positioning a Lancaster rotary table feeder under the mixer’s discharge chute and feeding product downstream to the next piece of equipment, the batch processing is converted to a continuous process.
