Features & Benefits
The features of the DrumBlaster make it a device that is both innovative and unique. The machine is designed to allow deep cleaning of concrete tanks
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.

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.
