Concrete truck mixers and concrete pumps are regular visitors to most construction sites. However, the traditional system does have some limitations. Mixamate recently launched a new unit that allows for the delivery, mixing, and pumping of concrete from a single vehicle. The innovative machinery has been trialled, andis now fully operational in and around the London area.

Brand New Type of Unit

The fully road compliant vehicle was designed and manufactured using a combination of technologies drawn from the US, UK, and Denmark. At just 12 m long, it can easily navigate site and residential road access, and is capable of administering up to 12 m³ of concrete per delivery. Complete with an on-board 50 m delivery hose, the unit can pump at a rate of up to 6-8 m/hour.

“We are very pleased to have developed and manufactured this new type of machine here, using a range of International technologies,” said Chris Smith, managing director for Mixamate. “We have integrated robust concrete pumping machinery directly with a mix-on-site vehicle to create a brand new type of machine. The concrete pumping truck provides an all-in-one service for the on-site delivery, mixing and pumping of concrete from a single vehicle, which eliminates the need for a separate pump to be delivered, reducing costs, hassle, and CO2 emissions.”

No Need to Hire a Separate Concrete Pump

The vehicle has been specifically designed to administer concrete directly from mixing pan to trench. This removes the need to hire a separate pump for construction jobs, significantly reducing transport, labour and waiting costs, while reducing the number of vehicles on the road. It also removes the hassle that has traditionally been associated with hiring a separate pump, removing the need for ordering, storage, and cleaning.

The unit also draws upon Mixamate’s pioneering Conqueror Mixing technology, to deliver batching plant quality concrete from a mix-on-site service. Each ingredient that goes into the mix is metrically weighed and monitored by the machine’s on-board computer, providing a print-out documenting the exact quantities of the mix.

Ryetec Bunot brings commercial shredding to areas with limited accesCompact Waste Chipper Shredder

Ryetec Bunot brings commercial shredding to areas with limited access, no wider than a wheel barrow at 76 cm (30”) allows the BVE3 access through a standard pedestrian gate or door way.

Once past the obstruction, a capacity of either 80 or 100 cms (3-4”) and a power feed roller system, makes easy work of all types of green waste that can be reduced to an easily composted mulch and blown with the machines adjustable ejection chute into trailers, bags or barrows for easy disposal.

The shredder uses a proven drum and hammer system, exactly the same as on its largest 100 hp shredder, the BVE11, but in a much narrower version with 24 sharpened hammers. These machines ‘tear’ the material apart and the hammer system is capable of taking stones, nails and other contaminants without the expensive damage which can occur with most chippers when they encounter this type of material.

A 14 hp Kohler petrol engine provides plenty of power and an operator controlled lever operates the powered feed roller. The machine is easily loaded onto trailers for movement from site to site and a simple over centre lever engages drive from the engine to the shredding drum to give easy no load starting.
