3-bladed mixing stars
and scraper assemblies are fabricated rather than cast, for
extra strength. They are stronger than most and flex or
even bend if they encounter an obstruction, rather than
breaking, reducing the risk of a "train wreck".
Arms are heavier than any other and optional polyurethane
sleeves give even more protection.
Paddles are of certified HB600 ni-hard cast iron for long life. Their scooped design allows all types of mix to be mixed thoroughly and discharged with ease. Other paddle designs are available for special applications.
The Ocmix CVmixer's powerful countercurrent mixing action saves 10 to 20% on cement compared with pan and drum mixers. The payback time can be as short as one year. And the pan, being wider than most, mixes more thoroughly.
The optional skip hoist bolts onto the mixer during installation, making erection quick and easy. Its standard design ensures that everything will work as expected with no startup issues. Ocmer skips use a double balanced rope system and safety cutoff switches to make this skip hoist compliant with all regulations and ensure your personnel are safe at all times.
An optional air bag collects dusty air displaced during discharge of aggregates into the mixer, allowing only a small dust collector to maintain a dust-free environment inside the plant, saving extra cost.
Water and admixture inlets are standard, making installation and startup fast and trouble free.
Cement, water and other scales can be integrated into the mixer cover, making installation fast, easy and risk-free as well as ensuring the fastest mixing cycles. Cement scale is at left and water scale at right, behind the optional weighed admix containers. Use of pre-designed and assembled scales gives you the assurance that everything will fit when installed and will work exactly as expected from a standard and tested design. The optional skip hoist can be seen behind the mixer feed scale assembly.
All Ocmer plant accessories are heavy gauge hot galvanized steel and scales are fitted with commercially available butterfly valves for reliable discharge. Solid performance, year after year.
The standard liner is 18 mm wear resistant Hardox 500 steel; tough but not brittle, for floor plates and Hardox 400 for walls. Other lining materials, including Hardox 600 and Chromium Carbide cladded steel, are available on special order. Optional urethane covers on mixing arms greatly prolong their life.
Discharge doors are hydraulically operated, giving powerful non-jamming action and precise positioning. If power is lost, the manual actuator can be used to open the door. Rubber seals prevent leakage of water and fines during operation.
For maintenance-free operation, the Ocmix CVplanetary mixer has automatic lubrication of the main bearings, giving you peace of mind.
Parts are stocked at our Montreal plant with same day shipment throughout North America.
The High Pressure Washout option includes two or three rotating jet assemblies that force powerful jets of water in every direction, cleaning every surface thoroughly. A high-power manual gun is supplied for hand cleanup of the remaining difficult spots. This sytem saves personnel from the danger of climbing into the mixer as well as reducing cleanup time, giving the crew an extra half-hour of production every day.
We recommend charging the dry ingredients and pre-mixing before water is added. This has been proven to improve coating of aggregates and give faster overall mixing cycle times. More.
