The pugmill is an important piece of equipment in a pottery room or studio where there is a high clay usage. It enables clay to be reclaimed provided it has not become too dry. Clay that is too wet should be dried on plaster batts before reclaiming. It may also be used for modifying clays by the addition of grog or sand. The de-airing pugmill is a requirement in establishments where large volumes of clay are used and reduced preparation time is an advantage. The vacuum pump removes all air, eliminating time spent wedging.
