Lancaster Products can provide a single source of design, fabrication, installation and supervision for a complete processing system.
At Lancaster Products, we are experts in mixer system design. Our staff of mechanical and application engineers design systems from the mixer out – ensuring that the inputs are being properly delivered and the mixer product is transported efficiently. From the very simple to the complex mixer system design, Lancaster Products has the experience to deliver completely integrated systems optimized to work with a Lancaster Mixer.
In addition to the products in our extensive portfolio, we work with a variety of partners, including valve manufacturers, ducting, drying, conveying, metering and controls providers to design custom systems to meet your material processing needs. We partner with a variety of structural, installation and system integrators who have deep experience with Lancaster Products systems in order to provide true turnkey solutions.
Main areas of plant and system design:
- Raw material handling equipment and technology
- Batch preparation to include weighing and dosing control
- Complete control system design and integration to ensure all parts of the system work together

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.
