FEATURES

Stainless Steel: Shaft, augers and paddles of stainless steel, along with aluminum mixing and pugging chambers, make for rust-free clay processing.

Removable Blades: The mixing blade/auger assembly is removable for ease of cleaning.

Large Hopper: The 8" x 8" hopper door allows for easy loading of up to 85 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" 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.

Variable Speed Control: 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.

On Wheels: The VPM-30 comes with 6" diameter wheels. It is easily transported for cleaning or storage.

Work Surface: The motor and drive are enclosed for protection, cleanliness and safety. A 14" x 20" cleanable work surface is provided on top for convenience of the operator while loading.

 

CAPABILITIES

The Vacuum Power Wedger 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 warm up a batch of clay.

When the clay is adequately mixed, it can be deaired with vacuum and pugged out in the form of logs ready for use.


SAFETY

It is not necessary to continuously hand-feed the Vacuum Power Wedger as with standard pugmills. Load a full batch, close the lid and turn it on - this eliminates exposure to moving blades. The Power Wedger shuts off automatically when the lid is opened. All machines are equipped with a thermal overload for protection against overheating.

Cleaning is necessary only to avoid cross-contamination. Since the machine is completely sealed, it can be left for long periods of time without the clay drying out.
