Contractors World International Vol 6 No 1


Announce New


The USA company,

Blastcrete Equipment Company


has been providing innovative and cost efficient so-

lutions for the construction and building industry

for over 60 years. They continue to innovate and

have just made two interesting announcements.

Blastcrete D3522

Hot Epoxy Grouting


TheD3522Attachment fromBlastcrete Equipment

Company is, according to the company, the only

hot epoxy pump on the market that can be pow-

ered by an existing hydraulic power source.

It is a lighter, more versatile, lower cost option

than hot epoxy pumps and mixer/pump combina-

tions since skid steers and other equipment with

auxiliary hydraulic hookups can power the unit.

The D3522 Attachment features a durable hy-

draulic squeeze (peristaltic) pump. The pump has

two rollers that rotate clockwise and squeeze a 2

inch (50 mm) rubber pumping tube.

The rotation generates suction from the receiving

hopper and pushes the material through the pump

and out to the discharge into the delivery hose. The

epoxy materials do not come in contact with the mov-

ing parts of the squeeze pump, unlike a rotor stator or

piston-style pump.

The attachment can pump hot epoxy or cementitious

grouts at variable speeds from 0 to 6 yd³ (4.5 m³per hour

and deliver up to 400 psi of pumping pressure.

It can be used for spraying plaster and small wet-shot-

crete applications.

Upgraded 2,200-pound-

capacity Pan Mixer

For greater efficiency, easier maintenance and faster mix-

ing speeds, Blastcrete has redesigned the 2200 Pan Mixer.

It can mix up to 1 t. of refractory castable in two minutes

or less. In addition, the mixer can be used for dry blending

materials before water is added.

The new design increased the unit’s maximum mix-

ing speed from 30 rpm to 45 rpm, which reduces mixing

times from five minutes to two minutes or less. It also has

a variable frequency drive, which allows users to adjust the

unit’s mixing speed from 0 to 45 rpm in both forward and


The upgrade also increases the pan mixer’s efficiency.

To avoid the power loss that occurs when using hydraulics,

the 40 hp electric motor couples directly to two gearboxes.

By eliminating hydraulic components the 2200 Pan Mixer is

now more economical to purchase and maintain. An exten-

sion ring above the mixer was added to prevent material

loss or spillage during loading or the mixing process, and a

Fill-Rite water meter and 20-gauge dousing bucket allows

for quick and accurate water filling.

The 2200 Pan Mixer also features a hydraulically pow-

ered mixer tilt function, which allows the user to easily mix

a batch as small as 200 pounds (90 kg) to finish the job. The

tilt also allows for fast clean up.

Blastcrete can customize the 2200 Pan Mixer to fit any

voltage and hertz requirements, including those outside of

the United States.
