Pump, Conveyor Makers Add New Dimension To Mix Placement

ATLAS POLAR Truck-mouunted Mixveyor Conveyor offers a flexible delivery package capable of reaching footings and walls up to 51 ft. away from the mixer


Truck-mouunted Mixveyor Conveyor offers a flexible delivery package capable of reaching footings and walls up to 51 ft. away from the mixer in most residential, commercial and industrial sites. Radio Polar Remote Controls provide even greater placement versatility, product engineers contend. The Mixveyor allows material to be placed anywhere in a 300-degree arc around the vehicle, and pour in different directions and fill extended lengths of formwork and footings without moving the truck. The belt can be positioned to gain access to difficult areas or for crossing obstacles such as rough ground or walls and even through windows and doors.

Standard features include a single-beam design with tubular construction; long 9.5-in. rollers with recessed end caps for improved belt wear; brush guards along the entire length of the conveyor; and center-mounted, fully hydraulic combination swing and swivel mechanism.

Generation II 39-meter placing boom combines reduced weight with 114-ft. horizontal or 96-ft.-deep reach capability, and 40,000-plus sq. ft. coverage potential. At 13,500 lbs, its light weight is made possible by separating the hydraulic reservoir and power pack from the boom, resulting in a four-section detachable boom that can be mounted on a three-axle truck. The quick detach allows the boom to be easily craned to a remote location and supplied by the truck-mounted pump at ground level.

As a separate placing boom, the Generation II can be mounted in different ways including mast-mounting with floor frame, ballasted cross frame, wall truss or foundation frame. When mounted to climbing form systems, the boom can be equipped with a zero elevation frame. The boom can also be mounted on a lattice tower. Radio remote is standard with proportional joystick controls than can be used to rotate the boom 550 degrees.
