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.Enquire now
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.
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.Enquire now
What our customers think
Drivers really appreciate the DrumBlaster’s capabilities when they are cleaning up after delivering high-strength, kerb or coloured loads. The following is some of the feedback from drivers:
I bought the DrumBlaster over 6 months and found the machine easy to program when new trucks are added and the drives like it because it is simple to use and allows them to finalise paperwork or start cleaning their trucks. With over 4,200 individual cleans now I would recommend DrumBlaster to anyone, DrumBlaster is saving me a lot of time chipping out trucks.
DrumBlaster has been in operation for 1 year at the Halkitis Bros Concrete Plant. The results speak for themselves – the performance of the DrumBlaster Concrete Washout system definitely works. Over the six month period the trucks inspection hatch was opened and trucks have gained zero buildup with DrumBlaster. The comment from the drivers is its quick, easy to work and keeps the rear of their trucks very clean.
We washed out an aggi the old way. Jonathan and I inspected inside the barrel. The blades had residue of semi hardened slurry on the front of them. We then re-washed the aggi using the DrumBlaster and re-inspected the barrel. The blades were clean.
We have had our DrumBlaster in operation for over two years now and the results speak for themselves. In the past before the DrumBlaster our standard wash out operation consisted of a two rinse cycle and that was it. Then we would have to get in a de-dag once every 6 months depending on the truck and the driver sometimes sooner. Post DrumBlaster our washout/rinse cycle consists of min of 5 to 7mins on the machine then discharge into reclaimer then onto a final rinse at the standard washout point. We encourage our drivers if they are asked to “give it a rinse” you use the DrumBlaster, also when the vehicles are on kerb mix we limit the loads to two kerb loads then DrumBlaster before doing another load. We aren’t having to get inside some of our barrels for 18 months and even when we do it’s very minimal compared to before we had the DrumBlaster.
The DrumBlaster machine has been in operation at our Coffs Harbour plant since March 2019. Our drivers have found it easy to use and have implemented use of the machine each day. Drivers who have been in the industry have noticed a significant reduction in build up. Drivers who use the machine diligently have had no build up in their trucks. I would encourage more companies to invest in the machine to reduce de-dagging exposure.
Machine is going well, all the guys love it and they appreciated not having to get into the bowl to chip off the concrete from the fins.
