An industrial tilting drum concrete mixer is used to mix mortar, small amounts of aggregate chemicals, and other mixing solutions. Some users use them to mix plastic concrete, therefore, sometimes, this type concrete mixer is also called plastic drum cement mixer. They are perfect sized, mobile mixers that are designed with rapid mixing components in a fast, high quality manner. A tilting drum mixer can mix large sized aggregate materials due to its fast discharge rate for small amounts of workable concrete. Its internal blades are manufactured to lift and rotate the material being used, quickly and efficiently as other mixing machine or concrete mixer pump.
There are two traditional axes types, known as horizontal drums where one end has a drum opening for charging and another end for discharging (drum opening down). The other type
is the single drum, where concrete or other material is charged and discharged through one single opening. The only difference between both concrete mixers is their tilting
system whose drum rotation is powered via electricity, gasoline, or diesel.
Concrete tilting drum mixers are generally a trailer mounted or portable, small to mid-size piece of equipment. Usually they appeared as small batch concrete mixer. Its drum is a conical shape drum or bowl shaped, which rotates on an inclined tilt. They are used to mix concrete on small construction sites or they are used as an ancillary piece of concrete mixing equipment. These tilting drums are traditionally made of steel, but modern technology has now introduced polyethylene drums which are easier to keep clean.
Tilting drum mixers are manufactured as side-dump models and end-dump models. Both the side dump and the end-dump models, provide the ability for concrete or other mixing
material to be loaded manually within the drum, as well as newer models that are self-loading. Self loading concrete mixer truck is a new type mixer which is quite convenient. Self-loading drums are larger and are equipped with a tilting hopper. Tilting
hoppers are filled manually when it is situated at ground level. The hopper is then tilted up mechanically which dumps the material into the drum. Another option depending on
the tilting drum mixer’s use, is a mechanical drag shovel system, which is built-in to allow the aggregate material to be loaded into the hopper.
good ventilation for cooling the engine. Some models are also equipped with a bucket hoisting system and these mixer drums are available in 5, 6, 8, 10, 12, and “12L” cubic
yard capacities. Tilting drum concrete mixer is popularly known for its high durability and corrosion resistance. They are very suitable for hand feeding mixing materials into
the mixing drum opening.If you want to learn more about this machine, you can take this as a reference: http://chinaconcretemixers.com/tilting-drum-concrete-mixer/.
