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.
Since the introduction of the original K-series mixer in 1986, Lancaster Products High Shear Mixers have been designed to produce the best mixing and pelletizing results for our customers. Lancaster Mixers superior performance is due to our multi-tool configuration, counter current mixing action and variable tooling speed capability.
Multi Tool Configuration
Lancaster Mixers can be configured with three independent variable speed mixing tools: the mixing rotor, the plow and the rotating pan. These three tools work in concert to provide the best mixing results. The primary mixing tool is the high-speed rotor. The plow and rotating pan both work to move material into the main rotor’s path. The three mixing tools are so efficient at mixing, there are no dead spots inside of the mixing cavity and every piece of material passes through the mixing rotor every few seconds. Additionally, a sidewall scraper is positioned against the pan sides to prevent caking and buildup of material on the pan itself.
We are very thankful for all the positive feedback we’ve received over the past 30 years of enhancing materials processing projects for our clients with our high shear mixers. So, we decided to highlight some of the reasons our customers choose to partner with Lancaster Products to optimize their industrial mixing and pelletizing processes.
