As part of a trial at the Hanson plant in Preston, Sydney Australia in June 2015, eight trucks (8) were cleaned. From then on, four (4) of these trucks used the DrumBlaster daily washout system, and four were washed out in the traditional way.
In October 2015,all eight trucks were cleaned by independent maintenance company TPM, and the concrete build-up from each truck was weighed. The average build-up in each truck NOT using DrumBlaster was 417.5 kg per truck, whilst trucks using DrumBlaster had an average build-up of only 65 kg per truck. The four DrumBlaster trucks had an outstanding reduction in waste build-up of 84.4% per truck.
DrumBaster trials have also been conducted in Melbourne (Australia) and Amsterdam (Netherlands) and this has resulted in DrumBlaster purchasers by the companies undertaking the trials. Below is a photograph of a drum in Sydney Australia that has been using DrumBlaster which shows no concrete build-up after 4 months.

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:
The process is very straightforward. It cleans the fins – behind them where you can’t see, and in front. I can notice the difference compared to trucks that I work in that don’t use the DrumBlaster.
It’s really easy – anyone can use it. Given the results that I’ve seen in my truck, I will definitely continue using DrumBlaster. It does a better job than conventional cleaning.
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 Drum Blaster and re-inspected the barrel. The blades were clean.
We used to Dedagg our drums every 6 months now we clean every 2 years with little build up
