Lancaster K-Lab Mixer

Category:

Product Description

The Lancaster K-Lab Mixer was developed as a rugged mixer to economically meet the needs of most laboratory, prototype, or small production work. The K-Lab Mixer has the same counter-current mixing design as all Lancaster Mixers with the clockwise rotating pan bringing material into the counter clockwise spinning rotor.

The rotor and pan speed are infinitely variable. The pedestal control panel also includes a mixing timer and rotor and pan ampere gauges. These features, combined with the rugged construction and the various styles of rotors available, make the Lancaster High Shear Lab Mixers the mixers of choice for almost any type of batch mixing.

How the Lancaster K-Lab Mixer Works

The K-Lab Mixer has the same counter-current mixing design as all Lancaster Mixers with the clockwise rotating pan bringing material to the counter clockwise spinning rotor.

The rotor and pan speed are infinitely variable. These features, combined with the rugged construction and the various styles of rotors available, make the Lancaster K-Lab the mixer of choice for almost any type of batch mixing.

The separate control pedestal conveniently positions all controls for easy operation of all lab mixer functions. Included in the pedestal control panel are separate motor amp meters for monitoring the current input to both the rotor and the pan. Also included is an easily set timer which begins timing when the rotor is started and automatically shuts down both the rotor and pan when the time period ends.

The laboratory mixer head, with the stainless steel mixing rotor and side wall scraper attached, is raised and lowered using a linear actuator operated by a reversing switch on the control console.

The 12″ diameter stainless steel pan is readily removable for easy cleaning and batching. Additional pans can be used for prebatching and cleaning to reduce total cycle time when greater production is desired.

Pan heating and cooling is an available option.
