The new MX-20MT mixer/pump from Blastcrete Equipment Co. gives contractors a high-output, easy-to-use unit for superb productivity on shotcrete and refractory work in a variety of applications, including steel mills, cement plants and petrochemical plants. The machine provides twice the output of the company’s popular MX-10 mixer/pump, yet has nearly the same compact footprint. It is mounted to a single-chassis trailer for convenience as well as fast and easy transportation, setup, and cleaning.
The MX-20MT features a 1 t mixer with a high-speed hydraulic agitator that keeps materials blended and in suspension as it flows to the 4 in. swing-tube piston pump. The pump operates with up to 2200 psi pumping pressure for consistent installation of as much as 20 tph of material. Customers can vertically pump refractory material in excess of 300 ft and load the hopper with as much as 2500 lb of material.
“To achieve high output often requires a separate mixer and pump, which doubles transport cost to jobsites as well doubles the setup time,” said Tripp Farrell, Blastcrete Equipment Co. President. “We resolved these challenges and built a machine that is safe and simple to use, quick to clean, and maintain and very user friendly.”
Portability on industrial jobsites can come at a premium. The ability to move and set up a unit in tight spaces using a forklift can be essential. The MX-20MT can be set up with a single person, which saves labour and time.
Blastcrete preserved the swing-out hopper in its latest model, giving users quick cleanup and maintenance. Additionally, the 20 min. quick-change-out 4 in. flat pack provides low-cost insurance for contractors in quick turnaround installations. No other pump in the world offers these features, Farrell said.
Blastcrete offers an optional 2000-psi hydraulic pressure washer for easier cleanup and an automatic lubrication system to ensure proper greasing of the swing-tube pump.
The MX-20MT’s 22 ft2 platform provides 50% more space than competitive equipment to give operators ample room to manoeuvre for safe operation. The electrical controls are mounted on the platform and positioned away from the mixer to remain free from debris and water.
Customers can also use the unit with Blastcrete’s patented DustAway system, which consists of an innovative bulk bag design that attaches to a mixer to contain dust as the mixer fills. DustAway helps businesses meet impending US Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulations for crystalline silica dust by controlling dust to within new permissible exposure limits.
The MX-20MT is also CE-certified to meet European Union safety standards for equipment operation.
