Building Materials

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.

CLAY PREPARATION

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

  • Earthenware
  • Stoneware
  • Porcelain

Extruded Products

  • Architectural terra cotta
  • Tiles
  • 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.

The Effect of Rotor Styles on High Shear Mixing

In addition to the rotating pan, all high shear mixers manufactured by Lancaster Products larger than a K3.5 have two independently motor driven mixing tools inside the pan which are responsible for proper mixing, pelletizing, and granulating of materials: the plow and the high speed rotor.  The plow continually sweeps the entire surface of the pan bottom to prevent material from accumulating on the bottom and enhances the overall mixing action.  However, the most important tool of all is the high-speed rotor, which rotates counter direction to the pan causing a shearing action inside of the mixing cavity.  This high-speed rotor not only agitates the mixture, but significantly influences the control of the entire process.  While there are just two main style of standard rotors, we can custom configure the rotor to optimize all mixing processes.
