Definition of pug mill in English:
A machine for mixing and working clay and other materials into pug (see pug2).
- Because of the very low water content, RCC mixing is not as productive using a central mix plant - so a pug mill is often used, a very high-energy mixing device.
- The clay is ‘weathered’ before it is mixed with sand and water and passed through a pug mill, to acquire a smooth consistency.
