All Lancaster Products Mixers utilize a counter-current mixing action where the pan rotates in a clockwise direction, while the mixing tools rotate counter-clockwise creating a shearing action within the mixing cavity that imparts a tremendous amount of focused energy into the mix. The powerful combination of multiple mixing tools including the rotating pan, high-speed mixing tool, and the counter-rotating plow effectively eliminate all dead zones in the mixer.
The pan and the plow transport material through the mixing cavity into the path of the high-speed mixing tool ensuring that all particles pass through the high-speed mixing tool every few seconds. The plow and sidewall scraper prevent material build up on the pan bottom and sidewalls, effectively leaving no unswept surfaces where ingredients can lodge. The Lancaster Products Mixer design allows for thorough mixing – without relying on the free fall or tumbling of material. Processing times are greatly reduced compared to most conventional mixers while providing a more homogeneous batch.
