The HighShear AgiMixer allows a combination of both Colloidal and paddle mixing to occur simultaneously or seperately as desired. It is possible to use both mixing methods simultaneously to achieve rapid mixing of a base mix, followed by only paddle mixing a further product, which may be more delicate.
Upon completion of the mixing process, the Colloidal mixers can be turned off to save power or keep from generating unwanted heat, while keeping the product agitated using the paddles. This allows batches of grout to be stored in the mixing vessel unit it is required to feed a pumping unit.
The unique mixing action allows rapid mixing of grouts contaiing sand, up to a sand/cement ratio of 2:1 and neat cement grouts with water/cement ratios as low as 0.40:1 without additives, or lower with plasticisers or superplasticisers. The mixers are also very efficient at mixing bentonite and other clay products because the process accelerates hydration and makes a more stable product.
The Agi Mixer 3000 outputs beween 19-26 Cubic Yards per hour as batch mixers, dependent upon mix designs and material feed rates. It has a capacity of 800 Gallons and outputs 2 x 30 HP for HighShear Mixing and 7.5 HP for Paddle Mixing.
