About Us

Through Michael McLanahan's direction and leadership, McLanahan Corporation has developed into an international powerhouse as a supplier of not just equipment, but process solutions.

With an on-site foundry and complete machining, fabrication, assembly, and electrical departments, just about everything can be done in-house to ensure the highest quality and customer satisfaction.

The company is in the unique position of being able to manufacture many of their products from the ground up by using the latest engineering CAD systems (including recently installed +25 seats of 3D modeling) and four Electrical Engineers with PLC software programming skills.

Mineral Processing

Whether you're processing coal, rock, salt, iron ore, wood chips or clay, to name a few, McLanahan Corporation has a solution for you. With a wide range of equipment that performs crushing, mixing, screening, feeding, dewatering and scrubbing, our product line is one of the most reliable and versatile in the industry.

Our Mineral Processing Division began when the patented Rotary Breaker was first fabricated by McLanahan Stone Corporation in 1893. Shortly thereafter in 1894, Samuel Calvin McLanahan (2nd generation) invented the McLanahan Single Roll Crusher.

Aggregate Processing

McLanahan Corporation offers a wide range of aggregate processing equipment for washing, classifying, crushing and screening construction aggregates such as limestone, granite, sand, gravel and other similar minerals.

Around 1890, Samuel Calvin McLanahan, second generation, conceived an idea to wash clay from the rock in his Florida phosphate deposits. Inside a long box, he mounted wooden logs and attached cast iron paddles to them. On January 27, 1891, he secured a patent for his new machine and called it the Log Washer.

Sampling Systems

McLanahan is the industry leader in the design and manufacture of heavy-duty sampling equipment.

The experienced staff at McLanahan provides custom-engineered solutions, superior and innovative design that meets the latest sampling standards and outstanding customer service.

McLanahan Sampling Systems offers a wide range of innovative sampling solutions of the coal production, power generation and aggregate industries.


McLanahan is very excited to announce the addition of the Environmental Division. The central focus of the Environmental Division is the Recessed Plate Filter Press and expanding our service range in filtration technologies and other environmental technologies. We are looking to expand this equipment line into the pulp, paper and food industries as well.

We are in the process of adding additional information and photos regarding our product line. Please continue to check back for updated information.
