Today TOPSTARMACHINE will introduce you very useful information about mixing tank. That is the structure of the concrete mixer tank. Let’s find out about this issue with us.

Application of concrete mixer tank

Concrete mixer tank is a large-sized concrete mixer good to use in transporting concrete mixture long distances from the feeding place to the construction site, delaying the coagulation process of concrete, avoiding the situation during transportation. In addition, moving concrete stratified, thereby, ensuring construction progress and quality of the work.

How is the concrete mixer made?

Concrete tanks are good to use to transport concrete for construction works in cities or residential areas where permanent concrete batching plants are not allowed.

Structure of concrete tank

The mixing tank is the main important part of the mixer truck, which is the place to store and mix concrete. In addition, it has a decisive effect in preventing concrete hardening and preventing concrete from falling apart.

How is the concrete mixer made?

Hydraulic powertrain

Hydraulic transmission system uses closed pressure transmission system, high efficiency, low heat generation, low noise. The hydraulic transmission system uses a PTO shaft for transmission.

The driving force transmits to the oil pump through the transmission shaft -> high oil pressure will start the metering motor -> reducer -> the tank will rotate to perform feeding and mixing – discharging concrete.

In addition, low speed torque reducers can provide superior features with long service life.

Concrete mixing tank is commonly good to use for pouring concrete and transporting concrete. So what is a concrete mixer? And what other useful uses does this concrete mixer tank have? The answer will be answered by maymocxaydung.vn soon.

What is a concrete mixer?

Concrete tanks are good to use to transport concrete from factories, factories, and concrete batching plants to construction sites, houses, bridges and roads with a distance from 1 km to several tens of kilometers in order to reduce the number of batching plants.

In addition, during the transportation of concrete, the concrete mixing tank rotates evenly to ensure the quality of concrete. When transporting concrete at short distances, we pour concrete into the mixing bomb and let the concrete tank rotate at a low speed to ensure that the concrete does not stratify.

When transporting the concrete mix to a long distance, we pour the unmixed but quantified dry concrete mixture into the bucket. In the process of moving the concrete tank, it will mix with sand, stone, cement, and water. Thus, the vehicle is both responsible for transporting and mixing concrete.

Concrete mixer trucks circulating on the road must meet the requirements of safety and environmental protection standards. In addition, concrete mixing tank has the right shape and size to store and mix concrete in proportion to the allowable load of the vehicle. Rotation speed adjusts as required.

  • Allow concrete discharge and concrete tank cleaning on request
  • Easy to manufacture and low cost but must ensure quality
  • Easy to disassemble and maintain the concrete mixer tank

Classification of concrete mixer tanks

Mixing Tank 2022

Concrete tanks classify according to the load and method of rotation of the tank + Mechanical movement + Hydraulic movement + Mechanical movement

Construction of commercial concrete tank

Hydraulic pump of concrete mixing tank with closed pressure movement, low noise, high working efficiency the drive line to the oil pump through the drive shaft —> high oil pressure will start the metering motor —> reducer —> the tank will rotate to perform feeding and mixing – discharging concrete.

In addition, concrete tank is one of the most important parts good to use to store concrete to help the mixer evenly avoid setting

Water line system use to spray car washes

Water line system for concrete mixer tanks good to use to spray car washes and premix concrete. It comes into 2 types of water supply:

  • First: Water supply by pressure is to install a water tank above the reducer, compressed air in the air chamber passes through the pressure reducing valve to reach the water tank. When rinsing, just open the control valve, water will spray out.
  • Second: Supplying water with a pump is to use a pump to create pressure to push water when washing the tank.

Concrete mixing tank control system

The control lever locates on the left side or two sides of the back frame of the concrete mixer. The lever operation can adjust the amount and direction of hydraulic oil, thereby controlling the tank to enter or discharge concrete.

Concrete feeding and discharging: important structural components

Concrete feeding and discharging are important structural components of the vehicle including the feed hopper, slide, discharge chute, extension chute, bracket, and hopper seal.

In addition, feed hopper and discharge chute have additional pads, increase wear resistance, discharge chute can rotate 180 degrees, when in vertical position can adjust high and low, when needed, it can extend by connecting trough to fit with specific situations.

Feeding into the concrete mixer should use an excavator to increase labor productivity

What is a concrete mixing tank?

Concrete tank is an increasingly popular product in the Vietnamese market. Tanks include 2 main types: Hydraulic concrete tanks and diesel tanks.

  • Hydraulic tank is a type of tank powered by hydraulic source from the truck.
  • Diesel tank is a tank fitted with a diesel engine that runs independently, separate from the truck.

In addition, concrete mixer tanks made of the best materials, manufactured on modern technological lines. The tank scientifically designs, with a reasonable arrangement of wings, extremely fast loading and unloading.

Construction of concrete mixing tank

Tank structure includes: hydraulic pump system, water line, pedestal frame and other mechanical details.

Hydraulic transmission system: sealed pressure transmission, high efficiency, with cooling fan so less heat generation, low noise.

  • The reducer with low speed torque ensures stable, durable operation and long service life.
  • The control lever locates at the rear near the discharge chute to easily observe during the concrete discharging process.
  • The control lever with a slight flick of the handle allows to adjust the flow and direction of hydraulic oil. From there, it will control the direction of rotation of the mixing tank, control the loading or unloading of concrete.

The feeding and discharging system include: feed hopper, discharge chute, extension through, rack.

  • The feeding hopper has a rubber sheet around it, which is convenient when feeding into the tank.
  • In addition, the discharge chute rotates 180 degrees, height and low can adjust. The extension trough can open or retract for convenient adjustment in each specific concrete discharge situation.
  • The extension chute can lock with latches for safety when not in use or on the go.
