The Vacuum Power Wedger combines the capability of batch mixing with the convenience of pugmill output and the ease of vacuum deairing. All your scrap goes right back into the hopper and is recycled, vacuum deaired and pugged.
Stainless Steel: Shaft, augers and paddles of stainless steel, along with aluminum mixing and pugging chambers, make for rust-free clay processing.
Large Hopper: The 9" x 9" hopper door allows for easy loading of up to 140 Ibs. of clay per batch.
Batch Mixing Capability: Full batch mixing and blending capability allows for moisture adjustment before pugging.
Pugmill Output: Switch to PUG after a batch is completely mixed, and the Power Wedger unloads itself in the form of 3.5" diameter deaired logs.
Vacuum Deaired: Each batch can be deaired by starting the vacuum pump when the load is mixed. Air is removed during the last stage of mixing, leaving an air-free product when pugged out.
Sealed Chamber: Leaving moist clay in the Power Wedger is not a problem. All the openings are sealed so clay will stay moist indefinitely. On Wheels: The VPM-60 has 8" diameter wheels and front casters for easy transport for cleaning and storage.
Work Surface: The motor, gear drive, and vacuum pump are enclosed by a stainless steel cover for protection and cleanliness. This creates a durable work surface for convenience of the operator while loading.
