Ideal for the small studio or educational use as it only takes 7Kgs of clay to fill the machine up.
The standard machine incorporates Aluminium barrels and nose cone with Nylatron blades. The auger is powered by an in line helical drive motor and gearbox. The pugmill is supplied complete with a high volume vacuum pump.
For easy cleaning it has externally removable shredder plates, making it one of the most user friendly machines available. The pugmill can be supplied with various options including die plates for coil extrusion and tile nose cone and dies for extruding tiles.
Pugmills are an important item of equipment in any pottery or studio. Provided that the clay is not too dry, putting it through a pugmill will reconstitute it. Thus the clay can be reclaimed and used again. The pugmill can also be used within reasonable limits for incorporating such materials as sand or grog etc into the clay body. If the pugmill is used fairly frequently and the hopper and outlet nose cone sealed, when not in use, no appreciable drying of the clay will occur and it will not be necessary to clean the pugmill. However, if the pugmill is used infrequently it should be cleaned after use. Under no circumstances should the pugmill be used with dry clay still in its body.
