Large Studio Equipment / Pugmills / Peter Pugger VPM9 Pugmill

Peter Pugger VPM9 Pugmill

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. Variable Speed Control now comes stock on the VPM-9 and VPM-20. Any clay that has not been fired can be reclaimed in the VPM-9. Broken greenware, slop, powder and water can be thrown into the pugmill and reclaimed in minutes. It is that simple.

  • 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 25 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. 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 openings are sealed so clay will stay moist indefinitely.
  • 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.
