Eirich launch new R16 intensive mixer at Hillhead 2010
World renowned for their mixing technology, Eirich will exhibit their brand new R16 intensive pan mixer for the first time in the UK on the Orthos stand at Hillhead 2010.
The new mixer is a testament to the high degree of sophistication that is found in the concrete and building materials industry of today. Its versatility and high specific energy input make it particularly suitable for facing and speciality concretes.
Whilst incorporating the well proven principle of the rotating pan, the ‘R’ series is a simpler design to the older ‘D’ series mixer that is still widely used throughout the concrete industry. Fitted with a single multi-level mixing tool, and fixed pan and wall scrapers, the complete batch of material is swept into the mixing zone on every pan revolution. As a consequence, the applied energy is efficiently transferred into the mix, in direct proportion to the speed of the mixing tool. This tool may run in the opposite or same direction as the pan – particularly useful when light weight aggregates or fibres are to be mixed.
The R16 has a 500-750 litre capacity (800-1200kgs) and matches precisely the demands of today’s industry, short mixing times, low energy consumption, high mix quality, batch repeatability and low maintenance.
