These special reports describe the core principles of Lancaster Products’ high shear, counter-current technologies.
Report: Counter-Current Rotating Pan Mixers
Is this a new invention? Most technical books on mixing equipment rarely include this mixer design. Yet, counter-current rotating pan mixers have been serving industrial mixing needs for over half a century. So, how is this mixer different from, and perhaps superior to, other mixer designs?
Report: Mixing Intensity versus Mixing Time
Mixing is, in the typical industrial context, the intermingling of ingredients to the extent that is acceptable for the final process, with acceptance being defined as suitability for the product’s final usage. Mix homogeneity greatly affects the product’s qualities or reject rate.
Report: Mix-granulating with K-series Mixer
Many reasons compel industrial operations to enlarge solid particles for handling. Some objectives may be: enhancing flow properties, recycling, de-dusting, densifying, freezing ingredient distribution, improving mold filling properties, etc.
Report: Refractory Applications
Refractories are important to high-temperature manufacturing. They are critical to industries such as glass, ceramic, and metallurgy by thermally insulating equipment, thereby protecting personnel and equipment, and saving fuel.
Report: Ferrite Processing from A Mixing Perspective
Ferrite materials have a dark grey to black color, possess strong magnetic properties and are categorized into Hard and Soft sub-classes. They are classified as ceramics due to their composition being a combination of metallic oxides.

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
