Slip-O-Matic ™ Centrifugal Pumps

This is the best pump design in the industry! There are no bearings or seals exposed to the slip, and it comes with a full two-year warranty. We use this pump with several of our machines, including our T60, T100, BP24 and BP30.

The drive assembly of the Slip-O-Matic™ pump is what we refer to as the bearing assembly and it has no bearings or moving seals exposed to the liquid. We use this unique assembly to drive several different types of pumping systems. The original unit was a centrifugal design with a housing and impeller. A four-leg tower is used to suspend the housing, and the impeller is fastened to the shaft.

Regardless of the shaft size used, the hole in the top of the housing is slightly larger and no bearing or seal is used at this point. As a result, the pump can be run either in or out of the liquid with no wear or damage to the system. While this pump is not cheap to build, there is nothing available that compares to its quality and durability.

Also, since the pump is actually suspended in the slip, the rotating drive assembly creates mixing action in the tank. And by building different sizes of the same design, the pump can be made to meet the volume needs of various requirements and situations.


Slip-O-Matic ™ Reversible

This pump not only pumps slip into molds, it also pumps it back out, eliminating all the heavy lifting. There is pump part wear because the rotor and stator are exposed to the slip. A great value for those that cannot lift heavy molds and need reverse action.

Shortly after we developed the original Slip-O-Matic™ Centrifugal pump, we modified it and introduced a unit that both fills and drains the molds.

These machines use the same bearing assembly, but it drives a positive displacement pump that consists of a rotor and stator. When turning in one direction, the slip is pumped through the hose and into the mold. When the motor is switched to drain, the assembly turns the other direction and pulls the slip from the mold back into the tank. An extension tube for the nozzle is provided to reach down inside the bottom of the mold.

Due to the fact that the rotor is turning directly inside the stator with slip running between them, there is an abrasive wear factor on these two parts. Over the past fifty years, we have improved the durability of the parts, but the average casting studio replaces them about once every 12 to 14 months. The rotor is the hardened stainless steel part and it usually has a slightly longer life than the stator.

Our Model RM30, RD30 and RD630 reversible machines are fantastic when used properly. They allow you to fill and drain large molds that would be impossible to do by hand. If the drain feature is needed and going to be used, the maintenance expense is more than worth the benefit that is gained.


      

Stationary Casting Tables

Model T100


$1,915

Dimensions:
29.5"W x 96"L x 31"H

Description: 50 gallon tank, 8' table, Slip-O-Matic™ Centrifugal Pump

Operating Instructions

The Model T100 has been the best quality casting table available since it was first introduced in 1970. The unique Lehman centrifugal pump has no bearing or seals exposed to the slip. This pump is suspended down in the slip and then belt driven from the externally mounted 1/2 h.p. motor.

You can run it dry, or with slip in the tank with the nozzle closed without wear or damage. The central drive shaft, plus the flow-thru pump housing, provides the gentle agitation to condition the slip as you cast. A stainless screen over the pump inlet keeps out unwanted particles.

The Lehman Slip-O-Matic tank has a fifty gallon capacity with a heavy steel frame. The motor is located on the frame end and has a self-adjusting belt drive system. The entire top surface is covered with 1" dowels that remove in 3 convenient sections.

Reversible Casting Tables

Model RM30


$1,730

Dimensions:
24"D x 45"H overall x 32"H of tank

Description: 30 gallon round tank, reversible pump

Operating Instructions

The Model "M30" was the hobby ceramic industry's original slip casting machine. It was designed and introduced in 1965, and, with several improvements and updates, the current version remains the flagship of our company. The Model RM30 has a unique reverse pumping action which allows for both the filling and draining of molds with just a flick of a switch. The utility nozzle easily controls the slip flow from a trickle to a full 5 GPM. The drain tube (attaches to the nozzle) is especially designed to draw in from the sides and will not harm the greenware.

Also, by using the reverse action, the RM30 will fill itself simply by inserting the drain tube into any container of slip. The clear plexi-glass top covers help eliminate moisture loss and allow slip storage in the tank for weeks. The drive assembly has no bearings or seals exposed to the liquid and, as it turns, it gently mixes the slip and keeps it in ideal casting condition.

The 30 gallon fiberglass tank has a steel frame with 3 heavy duty casters and it can be turned around within a 24" space. It uses a 1/2 h.p., 110 volt motor and the machine is shipped fully assembled and ready to be put to work.


Model RD30


$1,760

Dimensions:
22"W x 46"L x 44"H overall x 32.5"H of tank

Description: 30 gallon table top, reversible pump

Operating Instructions

The Model RD30 has a unique reverse action pump that both fills and drains molds with just a flick of a switch. The utility nozzle easily controls the slip flow from a trickle to a full 5 GPM. The drain tube (attaches to the nozzle) is designed to draw in from the sides and will not harm the greenware.

By using the reverse, the RD30 fills itself simply by inserting the drain tube into any slip container. The drive assembly has no bearings or seals exposed to the liquid and, as it turns, it gently mixes the slip, keeping it in ideal casting condition.

Slip Reclaiming

Model 30B


$675

Dimensions: 19"D x 41"T with motor x 30"T of tank

Description: 30 gallon slip mixer/ reclaimer

Operating Instructions

Slip mixing and reclaiming is a primary function of the ceramic industry, and doing either in a casting table is really not the right concept. To properly mix slip, you need a very specific type of vortex action.

We offer the Model 30B mixer/reclaimer that is excellent for either making slip or reclaiming trimmings. Model 30B features a round polyethylene tank with direct-drive, top mount mixers. It has a removable plexi-glass top cover and a 2" side drain faucet. A steel base is optional. (Base adds 12" to height)

The 30B uses a 1/2 h.p. motor and can be shipped UPS. It requires some minor assembly, and we include the mixing and reclaiming instructions.


Model BR6



$375

Dimensions:
14" D x 24" H

Description: 6 gallon slip mixer/ reclaimer

Operating Instructions

The BR6 has the same great mechanical features as the Mity Mite, except it is designed to fit on a 6 gallon bucket. The motor mount / top cover of the BR6 is clear lexan and it both seals the tank and allows you to see inside. The BR6 has a convenient handle so the mixer can be moved from bucket to bucket. A 6 gallon bucket is provided with the BR6.

Dimensions: 24" Depth

Description: Slip-O-Matic™ Centrifugal pump, 24" depth

The drive assembly of the Slip-O-Matic™ Centrifugal pump is what we refer to as the bearing assembly, and it has no bearings or moving seals exposed to the liquid. We use this unique assembly to drive several different types of pumping systems. The original unit was a centrifugal design with a housing and impeller.

Glaze Mixers

Model GS20c



$970

Dimensions: 24"D x 29"H

Description: Glaze mixer and dipping machine

Operating Instructions

The easiest way to apply clear glaze is by using the dipping method. It's fast and efficient, plus it increases production and lowers costs.

The GS20C was designed especially to mix any brand of glaze. Shown here with the top cover on and the mixer in place, the tanks holds up to 25 gallons.

The glaze is thoroughly mixed in a matter of seconds. The cone bottom fiberglass tank is 22" deep and there are no edges or corners for the glaze to build up.

The ideal mixing action is created by the 4" prop that is powered by a 1/2 h.p. motor.

The Paint Safe grid has an adjustable height frame and it also swivels out of the way. All parts are non-corrosive and the glaze can be stored in the tank. The standard 100 volt motor has an 8' cord with an in-line switch.

In addition to mixing glaze, the GS20C is also great for slip and slip reclaiming.
