HOW IT WORKS

Using DrumBlaster Build-up Control Technology (BCT) for a few minutes each day is proven to reduce build-up by 85%. Drivers also find DrumBlaster very useful to use during the day after delivering high strength, sticky or colored loads. DrumBlaster Build-up Control Technology (BCT) incorporates an extendable boom with a rotating head allowing the mixer drum to remain stationary. Using recycled or fresh water the highly efficient electric driven pump combined with the water jets at the tip of the boom remove the days build up before it hardens.

EASY TO USE

  • Easy to install, very easy to operate and has a very low maintenance cost. A DrumBlaster unit can be used 24/7 and will easily service a large fleet of trucks. ​The 5 minute cycle saves time and water versus traditional washout methods.​


  • Back up to prepositioned bump stop
  • Turn off truck & remove keys
  • Drivers keyfob recognises individual characteristics of truck.
  • Pre-programmed automatic cleaning sequence does the rest
  • Up to 10 passes concentrating on the rear end of the drum/discharge area
  • Pauses and cleans the underside of the hopper and discharge area
  • Driver pulls away and discharges

INSTALLATION

The system is designed to accommodate multiple mixer drums configurations and can be customised to suit your particular site requirements. Spare parts are readily available.

​Installation can usually be completed in around 4 hours from delivery and has a small footprint of 5 m x 1.2 m (16.5ft. x 5 ft.). Plants often find it useful to install a small feeder water tank alongside the DrumBlaster.

​As an additional management tool, DrumBlaster supplies a web-based monitoring device for recording the system usage allowing management to standardise and monitor the build-up control process.

REDUCE CHIPPING COSTS

Using the DrumBlaster a few minutes each day reduces concrete buildup by 85%+ This greatly reduces the need for chipping services and lowers your annual chipping costs including, the associated hassles of hazardous entry permits, trucks out of service and drum damage.

CONTROL THE VARIABLES

Regardless of the causes of concrete buildup such as, type and strength of concrete, ie; curb mix, admixtures, temperature, waiting time on the job site or driver performance. Using the DrumBlaster on a daily basis controls the variables and reduces concrete buildup.

GET A COMPETETIVE EDGE

By self-certifying that mixer drum buildup is controlled on a daily basis using DrumBlaster Buildup Control Technology (BCT) your sales team and your contractor partners will have a competitive edge over the competition especially, on high profile projects where stringent QC specification are required.

INCREASED CAPACITY & PRODUCTIVITY

With buildup under control your fleet of mixers can deliver more full loads more often. Eliminate the unproductive and costly practice of hauling hardened concrete to and from the jobsite.

REDUCE FUEL CONSUMPTION

An 85%+ reduction in concrete build up impacts the bottom line in many ways. A savings in fuel costs is a result you can measure on every load of concrete delivered to the job site.

REDUCE TARE WEIGHTS

With a major reduction in concrete buildup the challenge of managing Tare Weights is within your control. Lower the risks of costly overweight fines and associated lost production while preventing the consequences of rollovers due to unstable loads.
