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.
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
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-
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.
