Ensuring Maximum Performance of Your Lancaster Products Mixers and Equipment.
Lancaster Products has been an industry leader for mixing and material handling solutions for more than 70 years. Because Lancaster Products are built to last, our commitment to our customers extends well beyond the warranty period. We place an emphasis on keeping our customer’s machines running at top efficiency with our genuine factory-direct spare parts and maintenance services.
LANCASTER PRODUCTS GENUINE PARTS
The failure of component parts can cause costly disruptions and delay production schedules. Lancaster Products provides a full array of factory genuine replacement parts specifically designed and specified for the Lancaster Machine. All Lancaster Products parts must pass stringent quality requirements to ensure high performance standards. Using Lancaster Products genuine spare parts and services avoids problems such as premature failure and lower performance that might be experienced with a third-party part.
Employing Lancaster Products factory spare parts has proven to be the best way to protect your investment from poor performance. All our parts are designed to work together seamlessly to provide superior and sustainable performance, ensuring your machine operates as well as the day it was installed. In addition, we recommend keeping high wear parts in stock to ensure minimal downtime. We stock a full range of replacement parts that can be quickly deployed anywhere in the world our equipment may reside.
We also offer equipment rentals for testing or production. Customers can try equipment in their own facilities over a period of time so other factors related to the equipment itself such as footprint, size, location, electric and air, etc. can be evaluated as well. It is during these test runs that unanticipated issues are often identified and addressed, thus helping in both the proof of concept of the process itself, as well as any equipment modifications that may be required to fit the needs of the application.
Lancaster Products offers a variety of equipment rental possibilities. We have a fleet of K-Series high shear mixers in a variety of sizes from the K1-LAB (0.5 ft. 3 capacity) to the K5 (24 ft. 3 capacity)* that is ready for use by companies looking to run sample processing on-site in their own facility. We offer rental terms of various durations.

MAINTENANCE AND REPAIR SERVICES
Lancaster also offers field maintenance and repair services. Our service technicians are intimate with Lancaster Products machines and can efficiently repair and service at your location minimizing downtime while ensuring that your Lancaster machine is operating at peak performance.
No one knows your Lancaster Mixer better than us. Lancaster Products Technicians can be deployed to your site for minor repairs or major upgrades. Older machines can be modernized to include the latest technology or repaired to run as good as new.
Traditional processes for manufacturing fertilizer require many steps and different types of equipment. It is common for systems to include multiple dryers, a mill/pulverizer for size reduction of dried material, pin mixer/pug mill for mixing of additives and raw materials, a pelletizer and multiple conveyors to facilitate the process. If this seems like a complex process that requires high levels of work, energy and maintenance, we agree.
Lancaster Products engineers can optimize existing complex fertilizer pelleting processes or design new streamlined systems to help you realize multiple benefits, including a reduction in physical footprint and an improvement in the characteristics and reproducibility of your pelletized product. By utilizing a Lancaster Products K-Series High Shear Mixer to replace a mill and disc pelletizer, you not only reduce system complexity but also gain the ability to begin processing with raw materials at higher moisture levels. The counter-current mixing action in a Lancaster Mixer allows for one-step mixing and pelletizing with rapid mix times.
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.
