Blastcrete Equipment Company has upgraded its 2,200-pound-capacity pan mixer for greater efficiency, easier maintenance and faster mixing speeds. The company designed the 2200 pan mixer specifically for refractory installations and manufacturing precast refractory shapes. It can mix up to one metric tonne of refractory castable in two minute or less. In addition, the mixer can be used for dry blending materials before water is added.
The new design increased the unit´s maximum mixing speed from 30 rpm to 45 rpm, which reduces mixing times from five minute to two minute or less. It also has a variable frequency drive, which allows users to adjust the unit´s mixing speed from 0 to 45 rpm in both forward and reverse.
The upgraded design also increases the pan mixer´s efficiency. To avoid the power loss that occurs when using hydraulics, the 40-hp electric motor couples directly to two gearboxes. By eliminating costly hydraulic components and the upkeep they require, Blascrete has made the 2200 pan mixer more economical to purchase and maintain. The mixer´s durable, tubular-steel frame includes a 15-square-foot operator platform and a user-friendly control panel for easy operation. Blastcrete offers a platform mixer extension so that the customer can discharge the mixer at various heights. A 3-hp electric motor with a hydraulic power unit opens the bottom discharge door so material free flows into a pump or mortar pan to be transferred to a form.
