Introducing Quikspray’s new 1.50” Carrousel Grout Plant. This compact unit consists of a standard 1.50” Carrousel Pump and 31” U-Blend Mixer mounted onto a skid frame—making it one complete unit. The Grout Plant sits on 16” pneumatic tires which makes it easy to move on the job site. In addition, the skid frame has fork pockets installed to allow contractors to move the unit with a forklift.
The Grout Plant is bolted together and measures approximately 48”x 38”x 56” and 600lbs. The model shown in the photo is driven by two 4hp air motors and the system requires an air compressor capable of 185cfm at 90 psi. to operate. This model is also offered in electric and hydraulic.
Just like the original Carrousel Pump, the 1.50” Grout Plant is capable of pumping epoxy grouts, heavily bodied materials, re-grouting mortar joints and also spraying fireproofing, waterproofing, EIFS, artificial rock work, stucco, and other commercial coatings.
The pumping system is easy to clean with just running a sponge ball and water through the system. Quikspray designed the U-Blend mixer was especially with easy clean up in mind. The mixer uses Square-Drive Technology to enable the operator to remove the mixing blades with no tools in order to wash the blades. This speeds up cleanup time and the longevity of the equipment.
The story of Quikspray Inc. began in the early 1950’s when Tom P. McRitchie began building barrel mixers to mix lime putty and plaster for the commercial construction industry. The idea took off, and Tom decided to form an official business and in 1954, he founded Quikstir Inc. Today, the Quikstir and Quikspray companies remain family owned and operated by the second and third generation of McRitchie’s. The mixer line has grown along with the pump line. Additionally, Quikspray has added a group of broadcasters and applicator guns along with other helpful accessory items. Today, Quikspray and Quikstir products are available worldwide.
