Product Details
Model Motor Mixing Capacity* Pugging Capacity* Weight
Peter Pugger VPM-30TE Tile Power Wedger 2.0 HP 240 lbs/hr 800 lbs/hr 470 lbs.

A complete clay processing machine.

Save your body and time for productive work and let the "tireless assistant" do the complete job of clay production and recycling. Capable of batch mixing any combination of wet, dry, greenware, slip, slop, powder and scrap. Recycle without slaking, wedging, or constant force feeding.

Robust construction combined with innovative design makes the Pugger-Mixer the most capable studio processor available today. The Pugger-Mixer frees the operator during the mixing process, vacuum de-airs the whole batch and then empties itself in the form of compacted logs -- ready for throwing.

Note: May take 4-6 weeks for delivery. May require additional shipping fees. Peter Pugger Pugger-Mixer price is FOB our warehouses.

Features of Peter Pugger Pugger-Mixers:

Batch Mixing
Full batch mixing and blending capability allows for thorough mixing and moisture adjustment before pugging.

Push Button Controls (VPM-60, PM-50, and PM-100 only)
The MIX/PUG/STOP buttons are mounted forward so the can be reached from the operator's side of the machine during loading and extruding.

High Quality, Heavy Duty Drive
The industrial rated electric motor, close coupled to a gear reduction transmission, is the highest quality available. Overload protection is provided in the magnetic motor starter.

On Wheels (VPM-60, PM-50, and PM-100 only)
The Pugger-Mixer comes with 8" diameter wheels and front casters. It is easily transported for cleaning or storage.

Sealed Chamber
Moist clay can be stored indefinitely since all openings are sealed.

Large Hopper
The oversized hopper door allows for easy loading of large chunks, scraps or dry powder.

Pug Mill Output
Switch to PUG after a batch is completely mixed and the Pugger-Mixer unloads itself in the form of compacted logs.

Stainless Steel
Augers, shaft and paddles of stainless steel, along with aluminum mixing and pugging chambers ensure clay processing without iron contamination.

Work Surface
The motor, gear drive and vacuum pump are enclosed for protection and cleanliness. This creates a durable work surface for operator convenience while loading and unloading.

Vacuum De-Aired
Entire batch can be thoroughly de-aired by starting the vacuum pump when the load is being mixed. Air is removed during the last stage of mixing, leaving an air-free, high quality product when pugged.

Variable Speed Option
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.
It is not necessary to continuously hand-feed the Pugger-Mixer as with standard pug mills. Load a full batch, close the lid and turn it on -- this eliminates exposure to moving paddles. The machine shuts off automatically when the lid is opened.

The Pugger-Mixer is the most versatile studio clay processing machine on the market today. It can perform a variety of functions efficiently, transforming clay in any form to a usable product. Some examples:
  • Mix moist clay from powder and water
  • Reclaim scrap - wet or dry
  • Blend two or more different bodies
  • Add materials (wet or dry) to an already moist body
  • Adjust moisture of an already wet body
  • Or just "wedge" a block of clay - literally warm the clay by mixing it
Vacuum Pump (VPM series only)
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 sources available. They are maintenance-free and long lasting. The Pugger-Mixer does not require a large vacuum pump because the clay is continuously exposed to vacuum in the sealed mixing chamber (no vacuum screens required). Once the clay chamber is evacuated, the vacuum can be turned off. No extrusion screens to plug, clean or slow down cycle times.

The nozzle, intermediate cone, as well as the auger and mixing paddles, are removable so they can be conveniently washed off. With the mixing paddles removed, the mixing chamber is easily accessed for cleaning. Cleaning is necessary only to avoid cross contamination. Since the machines are completely sealed, moist clay can be stored indefinitely without drying out.

Two year coverage on the whole machine; return the broken part, it will be replaced or repaired* (owner pays shipping one way only). Thereafter drive parts can be obtained through local hardware sources as all drive parts are standard components.

*If, in the manufacturer's sole opinion, failure is due to mistreatment or lack of reasonable maintenance, nominal charge may be made. Motor and transmission manufacturer's usual warranty applies to those parts.
