The MX-20MT mixer/pump from Blastcrete Equipment LLC gives contractors a high-output, easy-to-use unit for superb productivity on shotcrete and refractory work in a variety of applications, including cement. The machine provides twice the output of the company’s popular MX-10 mixer/pump yet has nearly the same compact footprint. It’s mounted to a single-chassis trailer for convenience as well as fast and easy transportation, setup and cleaning.
The machine features a 1-metric-ton mixer with a high-speed hydraulic agitator that keeps materials blended and in suspension as it flows to the 4-in. swing-tube piston pump. The pump operates with up to 2,200 psi pumping pressure for consistent installation of as much as 20 metric tons of material per hour. Customers can vertically pump refractory material in excess of 300 ft. and load the hopper with as much as 2,500 lb. of material.
The MX-20MT is equipped with a 173-hp John Deere Model 6068HF water-cooled diesel engine. Blastcrete also offers the unit with electric motors. The engine on the MX-20MT is placed away from the mixer and receiving hopper to prevent thermal transfer that causes refractory materials to set prematurely.
Additionally, Blastcrete offers an optional 2,000-psi hydraulic pressure washer for easier cleanup and an automatic lubrication system to ensure proper greasing of the swing-tube pump. Customers can also use the unit with Blastcrete’s patented DustAway system, which consists of an innovative bulk bag design that attaches to a mixer to contain dust as the mixer fills.
