TURBINE (PAN) MIXERS
Despite the fact that in some countries it is considered as old technology, the Turbine (Pan) Mixer is still a valid solution for the production of Readymix Concrete. SICOMA Pan mixers are built with Bonfiglioli angular gearboxes and the tank design is conceived on the basis of the characteristics of the MP mixers.
All sizes can be shipped in standard Open Top containers or Trucks due to their split tank, which can be easily assembled at the jobsite. The arms are connected to the rotor by a spring system to absorb the shock load caused by mixing blades hitting possible obstructions, protecting the gearbox. Larger models can be fitted with rotating agitator(s) to increase the mixing efficiency and to reduce the mixing cycle time.
All Sicoma Turbine mixers can be shipped in standard open top containers or trucks due to the fact that the tank can be separated into two or more bolted segments. Re assembly on site is simple and quick as the segments are located on positioning pins and then bolted together. The tank walls and floor are lined in wear resistant steel plates.
Under request, they can be lined with Ni-Hard plates.
MIXING ARM SPRING SYSTEM
All the mixing arms are connected to the rotating drive system with spring shock absorbers operated by cams. This system absorbs any shock loads caused by the mix blades hitting obstructions and protects the drive gearbox. It also allows easy adjustment of the mix blades clearance to the tank floor.
AGITATOR AND DISCHARGE ACCELERATOR SYSTEM
SICOMA Turbine mixers can be fitted with one or twin rotating agitator systems to increase mixing efficiency and to reduce the mix cycle time. A special discharge blade can further reduce the total mixing cycle time.
All parts of the discharge door/s are produced using very accurate CNC machining and the full door assembly is then bolted to the tank. This guarantees the correct positioning of the door and that the door segment rotates in a perfect arc and is in contact with the rubber door seal on the tank. This prevents any unwanted leakage when the door is closed and prevents any possibility of the door jamming.
HIGH PRESSURE WASHOUT
Two high pressure rotating stainless steel spray bars with adjustable spray nozzles fixed to the drive turret wash the mixer floor very thoroughly and a further two fixed bars wash the arms and mixing paddles as they rotate,
as well as the pan walls.
All Sicoma turbine mixers have a range of optional accessories available, these include aggregate skip hoists, cement weigh hoppers, water weighing systems, dust reducing airbags, high pressure wash systems, accelerated discharge blades and multiple discharge doors. All accessories are pre-assembled in the factory to guarantee minimum assembly time on site.
EXPERIENCE AND KNOW HOW
SICOMA have been producing Turbine ( Pan ) mixers for more than 30 years, utilising the expertise gained by the parent company OMG in the production of planetary mixers for the past 50 years. The know how from the planetary mixer production was the basis for the high quality and up to date design and production methods used for the Sicoma Turbine mixers.
CONSTANT IMPROVEMENT OF DESIGN AND MANUFACTURING
SICOMA customers will always benefit from the continuing development of our products and the standardisation we build in to our turbine mixers making the build and maintenance of the mixer simple and reliable with excellent standardized parts backup.
