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.

Many fertilizer processing facilities were originally setup with 5 or more large pieces of processing equipment systematically connected with conveyors for a minimum of 9 pieces of equipment to convert raw materials into fertilizer. The amount of work, energy, and maintenance that goes into maintaining a complex system like this is very costly.
Lancaster Products can optimize existing fertilizer pelletizing plants or establish new fertilizer processing facilities. Our counter-current, high shear mixers have several product and operating advantages over the complex, traditional systems.
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.
