Sonthofen, Germany – Talleres Alquezar has been successfully using two BHS mixers in a modular plant to produce a total volume of 400,000 m3 of hydro dam concrete in Portugal since 2017. The twin-shaft batch mixer has debunked the industry myth that the technology is unsuitable for these types of concrete mixes and has shown that it is the technology of choice during this demanding major project. The Spanish plant builder was even able to surpass the high concrete requirements with regard to the suitability of the mixer for the project.

Utica (NY), United States – A new Munson Machinery Paddle Blender equipped with four high-speed choppers provides added shear to break lumps and/or disperse dry bulk solids, pastes, slurries and emulsions containing agglomerates during blending. It handles free- and non-free-flowing materials that are dry, moist, oily or paste-like in batches up to 5.7 m3.
Detmold and Düsseldorf, Germany, October 19 , 2016 – C tec PRO is an all newly developed, fully automatic container mixer system launched by MTI Mischtechnik. Unlike all previous machines designed for this kind of task, it imposes no idle time for cleaning in the event of a recipe switch. For each new batch, the new MTI C tec PRO changes the relevant container along with its lid carrying the pre-fitted mixing tool. This makes for a virtually continuous operation and hence, a significant increase in the number of batches completed. Moreover, the container size and mixing tool configuration are adaptable to individual requirements and can be optimized for the production volume of each given batch. The high level of automation ensures that the potential time savings are actually realized in real-life industrial operation, irrespective of the number of batches handled.
