Blunging, mixing


Mechanical mixing of a clay slurry. Blungers of all different types are available. Some are simply a high-speed propeller on a shaft, others employ complex arrangements of paddles and container shapes. Clay slurries require the application of considerable amounts of energy to achieve a slip in which water has penetrated well between all particles.
