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

Lancaster Products is dedicated to optimizing our customers’ mixing processes and recipes. This 3 part video series will focus on our on-site lab and testing capabilities. In this first video, we demonstrate proof of concept testing with a chicken litter material for a fertilizer product.
We use our K1 lab mixer during these initial tests. We load the K1 mixer with the test material and then program the steps and feeds. After the mixer begins, we add a liquid binder to it to allow the material to agglomerate into granules or larger pellets.
Rotary table feeders act as a critical piece of equipment in Lancaster Mixers continuous batch processing lines. They provide a mechanical conduit to continuously meter and feed materials from each batch of material processed to the next process in line. The cone and cylinder over the table is used as a surge hopper to temporarily store the material batch while the table feeder continuously discharges the material. Their role may seem simple compared to the processing equipment they’re connected to, but is significant to maintaining continuous throughput and ensuring overall system performance.
Lancaster Products’ high shear mixers process materials in batches which allows for tight control over the physical properties of the end product and thus, higher on-size, homogeneous yields. Most batches are processed completely and ready for discharge in a matter of minutes. By positioning a Lancaster rotary table feeder under the mixer’s discharge chute and feeding product downstream to the next piece of equipment, the batch processing is converted to a continuous process.
