VPM-20 Vacuum Power Wedger

"The vacuum deairing Pugger-Mixer"

VPM-20 Vacuum Power Wedger

 

 FEATURES

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

Large Hopper: The oversized hopper door allows for easy loading of clay.

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.

Optional Stand: This heavy duty stand has a shelf, and the height is adjustable.

Optional Wheels: Wheels can be installed on the motor end of the VPM-20 stand for easier transport.

 CAPABILITIES

The 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 wedge a 25 lb. bag of clay - literally warm the clay by mixing it.

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 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.


 VACUUM PUMP

Vacuum is provided by a 1/3 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.


 CLEANING

The nozzle and the mixing chamber on the VPM-20 are removable so they can be conveniently washed off. The blades are then easily accessed for cleaning.

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.

VPM-60 Power Wedger

 

VPM-60 Vacuum Power Wedger
"The vacuum deairing Pugger-Mixer"

 

FEATURES

Stainless Steel: Shaft, augers and paddles of stainless steel, along with aluminum mixing/pugging chamber, ensures rust-free clay processing.
Large Hopper: The 9" x 9" hopper door opening allows for easy loading of up to 140 lbs. 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 1/2" 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. Our patented vacuum design allows us to deair the clay without the use of cumbersome vacuum screens!
Sealed Chamber: Leaving moist clay in the Power Wedger is not a problem. All the openings are sealed so clay will stay moist indefinitely.
Intellectual Mixing Technology: Real-time monitoring of clay consistency can be accomplished while mixing. 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.
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-60 comes with 8" diameter wheels. It is easily transported for cleaning and storage.
Work Surface: The motor and drive are enclosed for protection, cleanliness and safety. A stainless steel cleanable work surface is provided on top for convenience of the operator while loading.

Answer: The VPM-9 has arrived. With all the bells and whistles, and
a price that competes with the standard pugmills, the VPM-9 does it
all. Any clay that has not been fired can be reclaimed in the VPM-9.

CLEANING

With the removal of four bolts, the entire mixing/pugging chamber can
be removed so it can be conveniently washed off. The paddles are then
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.

Clay Mixer 240/208V 1or3Ph Sp 5 HP

Soldner Clay Mixers   Professional Model

Soldner Clay mixers are still being manufactured
with the same quality of construction that has developed their solid reputation
for performance over the past 36 years.

Soldner clay mixers are a fast and efficient way of mixing fresh
clay from powder or reprocessing scrap clay into a useable consistency.  There
are no sharp blades or augers but rather the clay is pushed against the stationary
mixing bars by a slowly rotating concrete tub.

What makes a Soldner Clay Mixer so good.

  • We use American made industrial quality Baldor motors and gear reducers
  • Most of the repair parts needed to maintain our mixers are off-the-shelf parts
    and available locally in most places. 
  • Mixer bars are 1" solid stainless steel.
  • Steel reinforced concrete tub.

Most Soldner mixers that have been manufactured are still in service, even some
of the earliest ones from 30 years ago.  Every effort is made to insure this
same quality in our new mixers.  I have used a Soldner Pro mixer in my own
studio for the past 16 years, mixing 12-23,000 pounds of  clay per year. 
The machine has always performed flawlessly.  I have a great deal of respect
for Paul and the reputation of his mixers, and I am now pleased to be a part of
this tradition.
