A concrete mixer is a focal part of the construction industry as it helps to mix the cement and water quickly to ensure the smooth and fast run of construction. As per its name a stone mixers is a tool that mix sand, gravel but particularly cement with water. It may be either installed at a particular place or portable. Concrete equipment is a major expense for any company and a well maintained concrete mixer will continue to operate efficiently for many years. It is important that any technician working with a concrete mixer not only understands how the concrete machinery operates, but also how to troubleshoot and pre-empt any problems that arise. Routine maintenance is also critical as this will prevent problems from occurring in the future.
Whilst there are companies offering chemical and industrial pressure washing services, even these techniques can fall short, failing to remove all traces of concrete from inside the drum. In these cases, the only solution is manual removal with the most rudimentary of tools – the jackhammer. Many companies have had to resort to using a ‘chipping service’ to remove the residual concrete inside their concrete mixer and concrete pump equipment. The service involves sending in a specialist to chip away at the solid concrete until it is all removed. It’s a tough job, but effective!
One of the most important tasks when keeping concrete machinery operating perfectly is maintenance of the concrete mixer drum. Dried concrete left inside the drum can cause serious problems over time, coating the inside and gradually reducing its capacity and the volume of concrete it can hold. The problem sounds easy to resolve, but it’s actually very hard to remove any residual concrete once it dries inside the concrete mixer drum. Using a pressure washer whilst the Concrete Mixer Drum is rotating can help, but is not the most effective means of removal. Of course, even the most experienced technician might not know there is a problem with their concrete equipment until it is too late. In summary, maintenance of your concrete mixer and concrete pump equipment is absolutely essential and could save you thousands of pounds in parts, labour and downtime.
