CONCRETE DRUM CLEANERS
FEATURES & BENEFITS
Reduce Chipping Costs & Frequency
Control the Variables
Get a competetive edge
Increased Capacity & Productivity
Take Advantage of Fuel Savings
Reduced Tare Weights
REDUCE CHIPPING COSTS & FREQUENCY
Using the DrumBlaster a few minutes each day reduces concrete buildup by 85%+ This greatly reduces the need for chipping services and lowers your annual chipping costs including, the associated hassles of hazardous entry permits, trucks out of service and drum damage.
CONTROL THE VARIABLES
Regardless of the causes of concrete buildup such as, type and strength of concrete, ie; curb mix, admixtures, temperature, waiting time on the job site or driver performance. Using the DrumBlaster on a daily basis controls the variables and reduces concrete buildup.
GET A COMPETITIVE EDGE
By self-certifying that mixer drum buildup is controlled on a daily basis using DrumBlaster Buildup Control Technology your sales team and your contractor partners will have a competitive edge over the competition especially, on high profile projects where stringent QC specification are required.
INCREASED CAPACITY & PRODUCTIVITY
With buildup under control your fleet of mixers can deliver more full loads more often. Eliminate the unproductive and costly practice of hauling hardened concrete to and from the jobsite.
TAKE ADVANTAGE OF FUEL SAVINGS
An 85%+ reduction in concrete build up impacts the bottom line in many ways. A savings in fuel costs is a result you can measure on every load of concrete delivered to the job site.
REDUCED TARE WEIGHTS
With a major reduction in concrete buildup the challenge of managing Tare Weights is within your control. Lower the risks of costly overweight fines and associated lost production while preventing the consequences of rollovers due to unstable loads.
Automated Build Up Control technology is cost effective
Will accommodate all size trucks
Standardize the drum cleaning process
Only need power and water to start cleaning
HOW IT WORKS
AUTOMATED BUILD-UP CONTROL TECHNOLOGY, IT’S HOW DRUMBLASTER WORKS.
Using DrumBlaster Automated Build-up Control Technology for a few minutes each day is proven to reduce build-up by 85%+. Drivers also find DrumBlaster very useful to use during the day after delivering high strength, sticky or colored loads. DrumBlaster Build-up Control Technology incorporates an extendable boom with a rotating head allowing the mixer drum to remain stationary. Using recycled or fresh water the highly efficient electric driven pump combined with the water jets at the tip of the boom remove the days build up before it hardens.
SAFE AND SIMPLE TO USE
Easy to install, very easy to operate and has a very low maintenance cost. A DrumBlaster unit can be used 24/7 and will easily service a large fleet of trucks. The 5 minute cycle saves time and water versus traditional washout methods.
Back up to prepositioned bump stop
Turn off truck & remove keys
Driver turns on DrumBlaster, keyfob recognises characteristics of truck
Pre-programmed automatic cleaning sequence does the rest
Up to 10 passes concentrating on the rear end of the drum/discharge area
Pauses and cleans the underside of the hopper and discharge area
Driver pulls away and discharges
The system is designed to accommodate multiple mixer drums configurations and can be customised to suit your particular site requirements. Spare parts are readily available.
Installation can usually be completed in around 4 hours from delivery and has a small footprint of 5 m x 1.2 m (16.5ft. x 5 ft.). Plants often find it useful to install a small feeder water tank alongside the DrumBlaster.
As an additional management tool, DrumBlaster supplies a web-based monitoring device for recording the system usage allowing management to standardise and monitor the build-up control process.
WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS THINK
DrumBlaster has been in operation for 1 year at the Halkitis Bros Concrete Plan. The results speak for themselves - the performance of the DrumBlaster Concrete Washout System definitely works. Over the six months period the trucks inspection hatch was opened and trucks have gained zero buildups with DrumBlaster. The comment from the drivers is its quick, easy to work and keeps the rear of their trucks very clean.
