Mine Mate shotcretes underground

Blastcrete Equipment Co. has introduced the Mine Mate, a machine designed to mix and pump concrete material for underground mine sealing and stabilization, grouting and various other shotcrete applications. It’s a convenient solution when ready-mix concrete is not an option. The Mine Mate utilizes a wet- mix shotcrete process. In contrast to dry shotcrete, the wet shotcrete process minimizes dust emissions and improves visibility, making it much safer, particularly for underground use. Featuring a compact and extremely low-profile configuration, the Mine Mate is designed for operation within a 4-foot ceiling. The Mine Mate includes Blastcrete’s X-10 3-inch, high-pressure swing tube pump and a high-shear continuous mixer. The unit is capable of mixing and pumping 12 cubic yards per hour and can handle up to 3/8-inch diameter aggregate. Offering the highest piston face pressure in the industry at 2,200 psi, it can pump material in excess of 500 feet, horizontally and vertically. ? (800) 235-4867 www.blastcrete.com
