How it Works
Build-up Control Technology it’s how DrumBlaster works.
The DrumBlaster daily washout system incorporates an extendable boom with a rotating head. Using recycled or fresh water and a highly efficient 18 kW or 25 HP electric driven pump – the 8 spray jets at the tip of the boom provide an aggressive washout.
With 2 passes of 3 minutes each of the boom, residual concrete is blasted away from the sides of the mixer drum and both sides of the mixing blades, as well as thoroughly cleaning the ‘A’ frame area.
The unit is safe and simple to use – your driver/operator views and positions the adjustable boom visually at the control deck. The boom is manipulated hydraulically: up/down; tilt angled and in/out.
The system is designed to accommodate mixer drums from mini to the largest maxi.
Installation can usually be completed in around 3 hours from delivery and the small footprint of 5 m x 1.2 m (16.4 ft x 3.9 ft) will impress any plant manager. Plants often find it useful to install a small feeder water tank.
As an additional management tool, DrumBlaster supply a web-based monitoring device for recording the following information: Site details; Truck number; Date; Pressure wash time.
A DrumBlaster unit can be used 24/7 and will easily service a large fleet of trucks.
The 6 minute washout cycle compares favorably to the traditional washout time.
Drivers also find DrumBlaster very useful to use during the day after delivering high strength, sticky or colored loads.
DrumBlaster – easy to install, very easy to operate and has a very low maintenance cost. Spare parts are readily available.
The unit can be customized to suit your particular site requirements.
