INDUSTRIAL SERIES - all stainless de-airing Pug Mills

The Venco, 'Industrial Series' pug mill is the workhorse of our range.

"The heavy duty design and all stainless steel  construction makes this unit ideal for large-scale clay production / processing of up to 3000kg/hr (6,600lb/hr)"

The Industrial series are manufactured on a semi-custom basis. This allows a degree of user-customization of the final product. Various options include different motor capacities, mechanical variable speed drive, barrel diameters and nozzle orifice dimensions (expansion chambers). Please speak with your supplier about the various options and modifications available. 

The Venco 'Industrial Series' is available with an optional mechanical or electronic variable speed drive. Simply turning the hand-wheel adjacent to the motor varies the auger speed hence the production capacity. The auger speed is infinitely variable between 7- 28RPM. 

The large volume, twin auger mixing chamber efficiently blends the ‘raw’ ingredients, and permits effortless feeding. The twin augers, directly beneath the feed hopper, ensure the clay is swiftly drawn away and effectively mixed. The Venco 'Industrial Series' pug mills are fitted with an innovative feed system that allows for safe and effortless feeding of clay into the twin mixing augers. This unique design, completely shields the user from the rotating blades without the need for a restrictive safety grille.

The stainless steel, mesh type, shredder screen may be removed without disassembling the barrel, which is a definite feature on a machine of this physical size. 

All stainless components are electro-polished - this further increases the corrosion resistance of the pug mill. This process concentrates chromium at the surface of the stainless steel producing harder and more durable surface finish.
