Concrete Mixers and Cement Mixers
A concrete mixer, also known as a cement mixer, uses a revolving drum to mix cement with water and an aggregate material such as gravel or sand. This is one of the essential machines inroad construction equipment and building construction materials. Concrete mixers can be large and truck-mounted or small and portable.
The Types Of Concrete Mixers
The first concrete mixing machine was invented in 1905 by the industrialist Gebhardt Jaeger, but since then different types of both stationary and mobile mixers have evolved to address the considerable worldwide demand for consistent mixes. However, three types of concrete mixers are predominant in today's industrial world.
The type of concrete mixer machine with the lowest maintenance and operating costs is the drum mixer, used for larger volumes. The high production speed of this kind of mixer makes it a market leader in the ready-mixed arena as it helps to drive down costs. Twin shaft mixers are generally used for high strength cement production and offer short mixing times.
Vertical axis mixers are predominantly used for pre-stressed and precast concrete, and because they can be efficiently and relatively easily cleaned between batches they are excellent for coloured concrete. The vertical axis concrete pan mixer is gradually being supplanted by the planetary, otherwise known as counter-current, mixer, so that the former can now often be found for a reasonable price on the used cement mixer market.
In-transit concrete mixers, invented by Stephen Stepanian in the early 20th century, have been adopted worldwide as a means of transporting and mixing cement and delivering it to construction sites.
These are very efficient as the mixing can be performed during transport on the back of the truck. Alternatively, a volumetric concrete mixer can be used. These are trucks containing the necessary ingredients to be mixed as and when required. Concrete pumps can be used to take the concrete to where it is required if the truck cannot get close enough. However, it is often the case that large amounts of cement are not required, in which case it is more cost-effective to use one of the many models of portable concrete mixer that are available. These typically use a small revolving drum into which the component materials are placed for the mixing process. Such a mobile concrete mixer may be powered by petrol engines, or an electric concrete mixer might be used.
