A pug mill is used to blend new clay or clay scraps to restore it to a more uniform and workable consistency. Clay is loaded into the feed hopper and an internal auger pushes the clay along the barrel, through some fine screens before re-compressing the clay and forcing it out the nozzle. Approximately one hour of pug mill use will produce enough pugged clay for an average professional potters days work. Venco have been manufacturing Pug Mills since 1983. Our pug mills are renowned worldwide for their quality. This is reflected by our sales of over 9000 units worldwide.

Venco use the highest quality materials in the construction of the pug mills to ensure a long and reliable service life. Venco manufacture three different series of pugmills. On all models stainless steel bolts are used whenever there is the possibility of corrosion. These materials are chosen to minimize chances of clay contamination by corrosion of the barrel or auger. The drive trains comprises a single or three phase (depending on model) AC motor, directly coupled to a high efficiency industrial gearbox. All motors have integral thermal overload protection. This combination not only guarantees smooth quiet operation but also a long service life even under the most demanding loads.
