In the event the pugmill is overfilled, the excess clay is collected in the vacuum chamber where it can be easily accessed and redirected back into the processing chamber in time for the next batch (if necessary). The Vacuum Chamber door is designed to disengage before excess clay can generate enough pressure to damage the gear drive system. This is a key design feature for mixing pugmills where clay is being forced up against the rear of the processing chamber during the mixing cycle.\u003cspan\u003e \u003cstrong\u003ePeter Pugger is the only mixing pugmill to provide extra protection against vacuum and bearing seal exposure resulting in maintenance free operation.\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e \u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eVariable Speed Control:\u003c\/strong\u003e This allows the operator the ability to speed up or slow down the pugmill.

Similar to an automatic transmission, the Pugger-Mixer can automatically speed up or slow down based on the hardness of the clay being processed. The operator can also control the speed by controlling the variable speed knob.\u003c\/p\u003e \u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003ePatented Vacuum Chamber:\u003c\/strong\u003e The Patented Vacuum Chamber serves as a separation chamber between the processing chamber (where clay is mixed and pugged) and the gear drive system. In the event the pugmill is overfilled, the excess clay is collected in the vacuum chamber where it can be easily accessed and redirected back into the processing chamber in time for the next batch (if necessary). The Vacuum Chamber door is designed to disengage before excess clay can generate enough pressure to damage the gear drive system. This is a key design feature for mixing pugmills where clay is being forced up against the rear of the processing chamber during the mixing cycle.\u003cspan\u003e \u003cstrong\u003ePeter Pugger is the only mixing pugmill to provide extra protection against vacuum and bearing seal exposure resulting in maintenance free operation.\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e \u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eVariable Speed Control:\u003c\/strong\u003e This allows the operator the ability to speed up or slow down the pugmill. This is especially useful when extruding through dies. Because of the back pressure generated by a large amount of clay being forced through a small orifice, the speed control allows the operator to slow the pugging as required. In turn, perfect deaired configurations are easily extruded through the Pugger-Mixer. There are additional advantages if you are a “single potter studio”. The ability to slow the pugging allows for time to place pugged clay into containers or bags.\u003c\/p\u003e \u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eStainless Work Surface: \u003c\/strong\u003eThe stainless steel work surface creates a durable work surface for convenience of the operator while loading.\u003c\/p\u003e \u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eCorrosion Resistant: \u003c\/strong\u003eThe VPM-20SS is imperative for potters using porcelain and white stoneware clay bodies with soda spars.\u003c\/p\u003e \u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eOptional Stand: \u003c\/strong\u003eThis heavy duty stand has a shelf, and the height is adjustable.

Similar to an automatic transmission, the Pugger-Mixer can automatically speed up or slow down based on the hardness of the clay being processed. The operator can also control the speed by controlling the variable speed knob.\u003c\/p\u003e \u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003ePatented Vacuum Chamber:\u003c\/strong\u003e The Patented Vacuum Chamber serves as a separation chamber between the processing chamber (where clay is mixed and pugged) and the gear drive system. In the event the pugmill is overfilled, the excess clay is collected in the vacuum chamber where it can be easily accessed and redirected back into the processing chamber in time for the next batch (if necessary). The Vacuum Chamber door is designed to disengage before excess clay can generate enough pressure to damage the gear drive system. This is a key design feature for mixing pugmills where clay is being forced up against the rear of the processing chamber during the mixing cycle.\u003cspan\u003e \u003cstrong\u003ePeter Pugger is the only mixing pugmill to provide extra protection against vacuum and bearing seal exposure resulting in maintenance free operation.\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e \u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eVariable Speed Control:\u003c\/strong\u003e This allows the operator the ability to speed up or slow down the pugmill. This is especially useful when extruding through dies. Because of the back pressure generated by a large amount of clay being forced through a small orifice, the speed control allows the operator to slow the pugging as required. In turn, perfect deaired configurations are easily extruded through the Pugger-Mixer. There are additional advantages if you are a “single potter studio”. The ability to slow the pugging allows for time to place pugged clay into containers or bags.\u003c\/p\u003e \u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eStainless Work Surface: \u003c\/strong\u003eThe stainless steel work surface creates a durable work surface for convenience of the operator while loading.\u003c\/p\u003e \u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eCorrosion Resistant:\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003cspan\u003e \u003c\/span\u003ePeter Pugger now offers a corrosion resistant model\u003cspan\u003e \u003c\/span\u003e\u003ca href=\"https:\/\/pinkwhistlesociety.com\/products\/pp_vpm20-ss\"\u003e(VPM-20SS).\u003c\/a\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e \u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eOptional Stand: \u003c\/strong\u003eThis heavy duty stand has a shelf, and the height is adjustable.

Similar to an automatic transmission, the Pugger-Mixer can automatically speed up or slow down based on the hardness of the clay being processed. The operator can also control the speed by controlling the variable speed knob.\u003c\/p\u003e \u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003ePatented Vacuum Chamber:\u003c\/strong\u003e The Patented Vacuum Chamber serves as a separation chamber between the processing chamber (where clay is mixed and pugged) and the gear drive system. In the event the pugmill is overfilled, the excess clay is collected in the vacuum chamber where it can be easily accessed and redirected back into the processing chamber in time for the next batch (if necessary). The Vacuum Chamber door is designed to disengage before excess clay can generate enough pressure to damage the gear drive system. This is a key design feature for mixing pugmills where clay is being forced up against the rear of the processing chamber during the mixing cycle.\u003cspan\u003e \u003cstrong\u003ePeter Pugger is the only mixing pugmill to provide extra protection against vacuum and bearing seal exposure resulting in maintenance free operation.\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e \u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eVariable Speed Control:\u003c\/strong\u003e This allows the operator the ability to speed up or slow down the pugmill. This is especially useful when extruding through dies. Because of the back pressure generated by a large amount of clay being forced through a small orifice, the speed control allows the operator to slow the pugging as required. In turn, perfect deaired configurations are easily extruded through the Pugger-Mixer. There are additional advantages if you are a “single potter studio”. The ability to slow the pugging allows for time to place pugged clay into containers or bags.\u003c\/p\u003e \u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eStainless Work Surface: \u003c\/strong\u003eThe stainless steel work surface creates a durable work surface for convenience of the operator while loading.\u003c\/p\u003e \u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eCorrosion Resistant:\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003cspan\u003e \u003c\/span\u003ePeter Pugger now offers a corrosion resistant model\u003cspan\u003e \u003c\/span\u003e\u003ca href=\"https:\/\/pinkwhistlesociety.com\/products\/pp_vpm20-ss\"\u003e(VPM-20SS).\u003c\/a\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e \u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eOptional Stand: \u003c\/strong\u003eThis heavy duty stand has a shelf, and the height is adjustable.

Similar to an automatic transmission, the Pugger-Mixer can automatically speed up or slow down based on the hardness of the clay being processed. The operator can also control the speed by controlling the variable speed knob.\u003c\/p\u003e \u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003ePatented Vacuum Chamber:\u003c\/strong\u003e The Patented Vacuum Chamber serves as a separation chamber between the processing chamber (where clay is mixed and pugged) and the gear drive system. In the event the pugmill is overfilled, the excess clay is collected in the vacuum chamber where it can be easily accessed and redirected back into the processing chamber in time for the next batch (if necessary). The Vacuum Chamber door is designed to disengage before excess clay can generate enough pressure to damage the gear drive system. This is a key design feature for mixing pugmills where clay is being forced up against the rear of the processing chamber during the mixing cycle.\u003cspan\u003e \u003cstrong\u003ePeter Pugger is the only mixing pugmill to provide extra protection against vacuum and bearing seal exposure resulting in maintenance free operation.\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e \u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eVariable Speed Control:\u003c\/strong\u003e This allows the operator the ability to speed up or slow down the pugmill. This is especially useful when extruding through dies. Because of the back pressure generated by a large amount of clay being forced through a small orifice, the speed control allows the operator to slow the pugging as required. In turn, perfect deaired configurations are easily extruded through the Pugger-Mixer. There are additional advantages if you are a “single potter studio”. The ability to slow the pugging allows for time to place pugged clay into containers or bags.\u003c\/p\u003e \u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eStainless Work Surface: \u003c\/strong\u003eThe stainless steel work surface creates a durable work surface for convenience of the operator while loading.\u003c\/p\u003e \u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eCorrosion Resistant: \u003c\/strong\u003eThe VPM-9SS is imperative for potters using porcelain and white stoneware clay bodies with soda spars.\u003c\/p\u003e \u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eOptional Stand: \u003c\/strong\u003eThis heavy duty stand has a shelf, and the height is adjustable.

Similar to an automatic transmission, the Pugger-Mixer can automatically speed up or slow down based on the hardness of the clay being processed. The operator can also control the speed by controlling the variable speed knob.\u003c\/p\u003e \u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003ePatented Vacuum Chamber:\u003c\/strong\u003e The Patented Vacuum Chamber serves as a separation chamber between the processing chamber (where clay is mixed and pugged) and the gear drive system. In the event the pugmill is overfilled, the excess clay is collected in the vacuum chamber where it can be easily accessed and redirected back into the processing chamber in time for the next batch (if necessary). The Vacuum Chamber door is designed to disengage before excess clay can generate enough pressure to damage the gear drive system. This is a key design feature for mixing pugmills where clay is being forced up against the rear of the processing chamber during the mixing cycle.\u003cspan\u003e \u003cstrong\u003ePeter Pugger is the only mixing pugmill to provide extra protection against vacuum and bearing seal exposure resulting in maintenance free operation.\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e \u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eVariable Speed Control:\u003c\/strong\u003e This allows the operator the ability to speed up or slow down the pugmill. This is especially useful when extruding through dies. Because of the back pressure generated by a large amount of clay being forced through a small orifice, the speed control allows the operator to slow the pugging as required. In turn, perfect deaired configurations are easily extruded through the Pugger-Mixer. There are additional advantages if you are a “single potter studio”. The ability to slow the pugging allows for time to place pugged clay into containers or bags.\u003c\/p\u003e \u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eStainless Work Surface: \u003c\/strong\u003eThe stainless steel work surface creates a durable work surface for convenience of the operator while loading.\u003c\/p\u003e \u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eCorrosion Resistant:\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003cspan\u003e \u003c\/span\u003ePeter Pugger now offers a corrosion resistant model \u003ca href=\"https:\/\/pinkwhistlesociety.com\/collections\/peter-pugger-pugmills\/products\/pp_vpm9-ss\"\u003e(VPM-9SS).\u003c\/a\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e \u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eOptional Stand: \u003c\/strong\u003eThis heavy duty stand has a shelf, and the height is adjustable.

In the event the pugmill is overfilled, the excess clay is collected in the vacuum chamber where it can be easily accessed and redirected back into the processing chamber in time for the next batch (if necessary). The Vacuum Chamber door is designed to disengage before excess clay can generate enough pressure to damage the gear drive system. This is a key design feature for mixing pugmills where clay is being forced up against the rear of the processing chamber during the mixing cycle.\u003c\/span\u003e\u003cspan\u003e \u003cstrong\u003ePeter Pugger is the only mixing pugmill to provide extra protection against vacuum and bearing seal exposure resulting in maintenance free operation.\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e \u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eVariable Speed Control:\u003c\/strong\u003e This allows the operator the ability to speed up or slow down the pugmill. This is especially useful when extruding through dies. Because of the back pressure generated by a large amount of clay being forced through a small orifice, the speed control allows the operator to slow the pugging as required. In turn, perfect deaired configurations are easily extruded through the Pugger-Mixer. There are additional advantages if you are a “single potter studio”. The ability to slow the pugging allows for time to place pugged clay into containers or bags.\u003c\/p\u003e \u003cp\u003e\u003cb\u003eOn Wheels:\u003c\/b\u003e\u003cspan\u003e \u003c\/span\u003eThe VPM-30 comes with 6″ diameter wheels.

In turn, perfect deaired configurations are easily extruded through the Pugger-Mixer. There are additional advantages if you are a “single potter studio”.

Similar to an automatic transmission, the Pugger-Mixer can automatically speed up or slow down based on the hardness of the clay being processed. The operator can also control the speed by controlling the variable speed knob.\u003c\/p\u003e \u003cmeta charset=\"utf-8\"\u003e \u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003ePatented Vacuum Chamber:\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003cspan\u003e The Patented Vacuum Chamber serves as a separation chamber between the processing chamber (where clay is mixed and pugged) and the gear drive system. In the event the pugmill is overfilled, the excess clay is collected in the vacuum chamber where it can be easily accessed and redirected back into the processing chamber in time for the next batch (if necessary). The Vacuum Chamber door is designed to disengage before excess clay can generate enough pressure to damage the gear drive system. This is a key design feature for mixing pugmills where clay is being forced up against the rear of the processing chamber during the mixing cycle.\u003c\/span\u003e\u003cspan\u003e \u003cstrong\u003ePeter Pugger is the only mixing pugmill to provide extra protection against vacuum and bearing seal exposure resulting in maintenance free operation.\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e \u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eVariable Speed Control:\u003c\/strong\u003e This allows the operator the ability to speed up or slow down the pugmill. This is especially useful when extruding through dies. Because of the back pressure generated by a large amount of clay being forced through a small orifice, the speed control allows the operator to slow the pugging as required. In turn, perfect deaired configurations are easily extruded through the Pugger-Mixer. There are additional advantages if you are a “single potter studio”. The ability to slow the pugging allows for time to place pugged clay into containers or bags.\u003c\/p\u003e \u003cp\u003e\u003cb\u003eOn Wheels:\u003c\/b\u003e\u003cspan\u003e \u003c\/span\u003eThe VPM-60 comes with 8″ diameter wheels.

In the event the pugmill is overfilled, the excess clay is collected in the vacuum chamber where it can be easily accessed and redirected back into the processing chamber in time for the next batch (if necessary). The Vacuum Chamber door is designed to disengage before excess clay can generate enough pressure to damage the gear drive system. This is a key design feature for mixing pugmills where clay is being forced up against the rear of the processing chamber during the mixing cycle.\u003c\/span\u003e\u003cspan\u003e \u003cstrong\u003ePeter Pugger is the only mixing pugmill to provide extra protection against vacuum and bearing seal exposure resulting in maintenance free operation.\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e \u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eVariable Speed Control:\u003c\/strong\u003e This allows the operator the ability to speed up or slow down the pugmill. This is especially useful when extruding through dies. Because of the back pressure generated by a large amount of clay being forced through a small orifice, the speed control allows the operator to slow the pugging as required. In turn, perfect deaired configurations are easily extruded through the Pugger-Mixer. There are additional advantages if you are a “single potter studio”. The ability to slow the pugging allows for time to place pugged clay into containers or bags.\u003c\/p\u003e \u003cp\u003e\u003cb\u003eOn Wheels:\u003c\/b\u003e\u003cspan\u003e \u003c\/span\u003eThe VPM-60 comes with 8″ diameter wheels.

Similar to an automatic transmission, the Pugger-Mixer can automatically speed up or slow down based on the hardness of the clay being processed. The operator can also control the speed by controlling the variable speed knob.\u003c\/p\u003e \u003cmeta charset=\"utf-8\"\u003e \u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003ePatented Vacuum Chamber:\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003cspan\u003e The Patented Vacuum Chamber serves as a separation chamber between the processing chamber (where clay is mixed and pugged) and the gear drive system. In the event the pugmill is overfilled, the excess clay is collected in the vacuum chamber where it can be easily accessed and redirected back into the processing chamber in time for the next batch (if necessary). The Vacuum Chamber door is designed to disengage before excess clay can generate enough pressure to damage the gear drive system. This is a key design feature for mixing pugmills where clay is being forced up against the rear of the processing chamber during the mixing cycle.\u003c\/span\u003e\u003cspan\u003e \u003cstrong\u003ePeter Pugger is the only mixing pugmill to provide extra protection against vacuum and bearing seal exposure resulting in maintenance free operation.\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e \u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eVariable Speed Control:\u003c\/strong\u003e This allows the operator the ability to speed up or slow down the pugmill. This is especially useful when extruding through dies. Because of the back pressure generated by a large amount of clay being forced through a small orifice, the speed control allows the operator to slow the pugging as required. In turn, perfect deaired configurations are easily extruded through the Pugger-Mixer. There are additional advantages if you are a “single potter studio”. The ability to slow the pugging allows for time to place pugged clay into containers or bags.\u003c\/p\u003e \u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eUpgraded 2Hp Motor:\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003cspan\u003e \u003c\/span\u003eIn addition to the massive gear reduction the gearbox provides, an upgraded 2Hp motor has been designed into the VPM-30TE to provide ample power.\u003c\/p\u003e \u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eTile Nozzle:\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003cspan\u003e \u003c\/span\u003eThe VPM-30TE has the ability to utilize the standard nozzle with a 3″ diameter pug or a tile nozzle with a 10″ wide x 2″ tall opening.

In the event the pugmill is overfilled, the excess clay is collected in the vacuum chamber where it can be easily accessed and redirected back into the processing chamber in time for the next batch (if necessary). The Vacuum Chamber door is designed to disengage before excess clay can generate enough pressure to damage the gear drive system. This is a key design feature for mixing pugmills where clay is being forced up against the rear of the processing chamber during the mixing cycle.\u003c\/span\u003e\u003cspan\u003e \u003cstrong\u003ePeter Pugger is the only mixing pugmill to provide extra protection against vacuum and bearing seal exposure resulting in maintenance free operation.\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e \u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eVariable Speed Control:\u003c\/strong\u003e This allows the operator the ability to speed up or slow down the pugmill. This is especially useful when extruding through dies. Because of the back pressure generated by a large amount of clay being forced through a small orifice, the speed control allows the operator to slow the pugging as required. In turn, perfect deaired configurations are easily extruded through the Pugger-Mixer. There are additional advantages if you are a “single potter studio”. The ability to slow the pugging allows for time to place pugged clay into containers or bags.\u003c\/p\u003e \u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eUpgraded 2Hp Motor:\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003cspan\u003e \u003c\/span\u003eIn addition to the massive gear reduction the gearbox provides, an upgraded 2Hp motor has been designed into the VPM-30TE to provide ample power.\u003c\/p\u003e \u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eTile Nozzle:\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003cspan\u003e \u003c\/span\u003eThe VPM-30TE has the ability to utilize the standard nozzle with a 3″ diameter pug or a tile nozzle with a 10″ wide x 2″ tall opening.

The operator can also control the speed by controlling the variable speed knob.\u003c\/p\u003e \u003cmeta charset=\"utf-8\"\u003e \u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003ePatented Vacuum Chamber:\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003cspan\u003e The Patented Vacuum Chamber serves as a separation chamber between the processing chamber (where clay is mixed and pugged) and the gear drive system. In the event the pugmill is overfilled, the excess clay is collected in the vacuum chamber where it can be easily accessed and redirected back into the processing chamber in time for the next batch (if necessary). The Vacuum Chamber door is designed to disengage before excess clay can generate enough pressure to damage the gear drive system. This is a key design feature for mixing pugmills where clay is being forced up against the rear of the processing chamber during the mixing cycle.\u003c\/span\u003e\u003cspan\u003e \u003cstrong\u003ePeter Pugger is the only mixing pugmill to provide extra protection against vacuum and bearing seal exposure resulting in maintenance free operation.\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e \u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eVariable Speed Control:\u003c\/strong\u003e This allows the operator the ability to speed up or slow down the pugmill. This is especially useful when extruding through dies. Because of the back pressure generated by a large amount of clay being forced through a small orifice, the speed control allows the operator to slow the pugging as required. In turn, perfect deaired configurations are easily extruded through the Pugger-Mixer. There are additional advantages if you are a “single potter studio”. The ability to slow the pugging allows for time to place pugged clay into containers or bags.\u003c\/p\u003e \u003cmeta charset=\"utf-8\"\u003e\u003cmeta charset=\"utf-8\"\u003e \u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eUpgraded 5Hp Motor:\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003cspan\u003e In addition to the massive gear reduction the gearbox provides, an upgraded 5Hp motor has been designed into the VPM-100TE to provide ample power.\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e \u003cmeta charset=\"utf-8\"\u003e\u003cmeta charset=\"utf-8\"\u003e \u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eTile Nozzle:\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003cspan\u003e The VPM-100TE has the ability to utilize the standard nozzle with a 4″ diameter pug or a tile nozzle with a 10″ wide x 2″ tall opening.

In the event the pugmill is overfilled, the excess clay is collected in the vacuum chamber where it can be easily accessed and redirected back into the processing chamber in time for the next batch (if necessary). The Vacuum Chamber door is designed to disengage before excess clay can generate enough pressure to damage the gear drive system.

In turn, perfect deaired configurations are easily extruded through the Pugger-Mixer. There are additional advantages if you are a “single potter studio”.

Similar to an automatic transmission, the Pugger-Mixer can automatically speed up or slow down based on the hardness of the clay being processed. The operator can also control the speed by controlling the variable speed knob.\u003c\/p\u003e \u003cmeta charset=\"utf-8\"\u003e \u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003ePatented Vacuum Chamber:\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003cspan\u003e The Patented Vacuum Chamber serves as a separation chamber between the processing chamber (where clay is mixed and pugged) and the gear drive system. In the event the pugmill is overfilled, the excess clay is collected in the vacuum chamber where it can be easily accessed and redirected back into the processing chamber in time for the next batch (if necessary). The Vacuum Chamber door is designed to disengage before excess clay can generate enough pressure to damage the gear drive system. This is a key design feature for mixing pugmills where clay is being forced up against the rear of the processing chamber during the mixing cycle.\u003c\/span\u003e\u003cspan\u003e \u003cstrong\u003ePeter Pugger is the only mixing pugmill to provide extra protection against vacuum and bearing seal exposure resulting in maintenance free operation.\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e \u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eVariable Speed Control:\u003c\/strong\u003e This allows the operator the ability to speed up or slow down the pugmill. This is especially useful when extruding through dies. Because of the back pressure generated by a large amount of clay being forced through a small orifice, the speed control allows the operator to slow the pugging as required. In turn, perfect deaired configurations are easily extruded through the Pugger-Mixer. There are additional advantages if you are a “single potter studio”. The ability to slow the pugging allows for time to place pugged clay into containers or bags.\u003c\/p\u003e \u003cp\u003e\u003cb\u003eOn Wheels:\u003c\/b\u003e\u003cspan\u003e \u003c\/span\u003eThe VPM-100 comes with 8″ diameter wheels.

In the event the pugmill is overfilled, the excess clay is collected in the vacuum chamber where it can be easily accessed and redirected back into the processing chamber in time for the next batch (if necessary). The Vacuum Chamber door is designed to disengage before excess clay can generate enough pressure to damage the gear drive system. This is a key design feature for mixing pugmills where clay is being forced up against the rear of the processing chamber during the mixing cycle.\u003c\/span\u003e\u003cspan\u003e \u003cstrong\u003ePeter Pugger is the only mixing pugmill to provide extra protection against vacuum and bearing seal exposure resulting in maintenance free operation.\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e \u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eVariable Speed Control:\u003c\/strong\u003e This allows the operator the ability to speed up or slow down the pugmill. This is especially useful when extruding through dies. Because of the back pressure generated by a large amount of clay being forced through a small orifice, the speed control allows the operator to slow the pugging as required. In turn, perfect deaired configurations are easily extruded through the Pugger-Mixer. There are additional advantages if you are a “single potter studio”. The ability to slow the pugging allows for time to place pugged clay into containers or bags.\u003c\/p\u003e \u003cp\u003e\u003cb\u003eOn Wheels:\u003c\/b\u003e\u003cspan\u003e \u003c\/span\u003eThe VPM-100 comes with 8″ diameter wheels.
