The new MX-20MT mixer/pumpfrom Blastcrete Equipment Company 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’s mounted to a single-chassis trailer for convenience as well as fast and easy transportation, setup and cleaning.
It features a 1-metric-ton mixer with a high-speed hydraulic agitator that keeps materials blended and in suspension as it flows to the 4-inch swing-tube piston pump. The pump operates with up to 2,200 psi pumping pressure for consistent installation of as much as 20 metric tons of material per hour. Customers can vertically pump refractory material in excess of 300 feet and load the hopper with as much as 2,500 pounds of material.
Blastcrete offers an optional 2,000-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-square-foot platform provides 50 percent more space than competitive equipment to give operators ample room to maneuver for safe operation. The electrical controls are mounted on the platform and positioned away from the mixer to remain free from debris and water.
