Lancaster Products Pug Mills simply and economically blend and feed a wide variety of materials and additives.
Lancaster Products Pug Mills are designed to meet your exact job requirements. They are available in a variety of construction materials. Lancaster Products Pug Mills are available in sizes up to 300 ton/hour.
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.
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. Wear-resisting blades, replaceable wear resistant liners, and heating jackets are available. Lancaster Pug Mills are designed to meet your specific application needs.
The rotating shafts are available in either single or double shaft configurations. The replaceable mixing blades are available in fixed or variable pitch. The blades are also available in various shapes and materials of construction and coatings.
- Single or double shaft models
- High tensile alloy steel shafts
- Open or closed end types
- Round or square bottom troughs with or without covers
- Blades are offered in a wide selection of designs and alloys
- Selection of right or left side, or end, or bottom discharge
- Automatic controls
- One piece or sectional wear-resisting trough liners

This is the third video in our lab and testing series. The Lancaster Products Lab is equipped with a production-sized K4 mixer to test and optimize mix recipes at full scale. In this video, we are testing a clay type of material for pelletization.
The K4 mixer introduces a third tool, the low-speed plow, which, along with the rotating pan, transports material to the high-speed rotor. You can see how the high shear counter-current movement creates a rolling action which agglomerates the materials into pellets. The K4 mixer has a bottom discharge; the plow allows for the rapid and complete evacuation of the mixing cavity. After the mixer is fully evacuated, the bottom discharge closes, and reseals ready for the next batch.
This is the second video in our lab and testing series. The Lancaster Products lab is equipped with a small production-sized K3 mixer to test and optimize mix recipes at a prototyping scale. In this video, we are testing a clay type of material for pelletization.
Looking inside of the mixing cavity, you see the counter-current mixing action. The pan rotates clockwise, and the high shear mixing tool spins counterclockwise. The mixing pan actively transports material to the primary mixing tool. Slowing the action down gives us a good view of how the Lancaster mixing action creates a tumbling that promotes agglomeration by rolling the particles much the same way as a snowball growing larger by rolling down a hill.
