Peter Pugger VPM20 Pugmill

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, along with aluminum mixing and pugging chambers, ensure rust-free clay processing.
  • Large Hopper: Oversized hopper door allows for easy loading of up to 45 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, 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 openings are sealed so clay will stay moist indefinitely.
  • Wheels are included and can be installed on the motor end of the VPM-20 stand for easy transport.
  • Variable Speed Control now comes stock on the VPM-20
  • Shown with Optional Stand: Heavy duty stand has a shelf, with adjustable height.
