Features

Stainless Steel: Plunger plate of stainless steel, along with a stainless steel extruding chamber ensures rust-free clay processing.

Large Hopper: The oversized hopper door allows for easy loading of up to 25 lbs. of clay per batch.

Sealed Chamber: Each pugmill casting has precision CNC machined o-ring grooves incorporated into them which allows the pugmill to effectively store moist clay indefinitely! No other pugmill on the market provides this level of precision when it comes to properly sealing all pugmill surfaces.

Extruder Output: Switch to EXTRUDE after a batch is loaded and the Power Extruder will begin extruding material using hand or foot operated controls.

Stainless Steel Construction: The Power Extruder main chamber, hydraulic push rod plate and nozzle are made of stainless steel to ensure clay processing without corrosion. Aluminum main chamber, hydraulic push rod plate and nozzle option is available.

Vacuum Deaired: Entire batch can be thoroughly deaired by starting the vacuum pump once batch has been loaded. Air is removed from around “clay chunks” leaving an air-free, high quality product.

Variable Speed: Variable speed allows the operator to control the speed of the motor, thus the speed of the extrusion. This control is especially useful when extruding small objects through dies attached to the nozzle.

Hand and Foot Operation: The Power Extruder can be operated using hand or foot pedal controls.

Rapid Retract: Once the complete batch of material has been extruded, switch to “RAPID RETRACT” to quickly bring the cylinder head back into position for reloading.

Safety

The power extruder is interlocked for safe loading and maintenance. Load a full batch, close the lid and turn it on-this eliminates exposure to moving components. The machine shuts off automatically when the lid is opened.

Vacuum Pump

Vacuum is provided by a 1/2 HP double-headed rocking piston type diaphragm pump. These new technology pumps are the simplest and quietest vacuum source available. They are maintenance-free and long lasting. The VPE-8SS Power Extruder does not require a large vacuum pump because the clay is continuously exposed to vacuum in the sealed mixing chamber. Once the clay chamber is evacuated, the vacuum pump can be turned off.

Cleaning

With the removal of four bolts, the entire extruding chamber can be accessed so it can be conveniently cleaned out. Cleaning is necessary only to avoid cross contamination. Since the machines are completely sealed, moist clay can be stored indefinitely without drying out.
