Each tank carrying concrete that can rotate it during concrete transfer and, on the other hand, prevent it from being used up to the final consumption point, is called Concrete. These tanks can also be installed on a truck, trailer or any other propulsion unit of railroad cars, as needed. If the mixer is used for all mixing operations, this can be done at the site of concrete production before going to the workshop. Either at the workshop or even along the route
Sometimes mixing machines are used to complete the mixing operation. In this case, a central mixing plant for concrete should be used for initial mixing. When mixing machines are used as concrete conveyors made by the central concrete, the mixer tracks act only as an agitator unit.
In the mixer, the circular compartment in which the concrete material is poured is the cup.
The order of the addition of concrete materials in the mixer will play an important role in the uniformity of the concrete.
Should avoid mixing overload, especially in the case of heavy aggregates such as steel pans, the size of the cargo should be reduced to about 50% of the nominal capacity of the mixer. Since some aggregates are quite crumbly, it is necessary to avoid mixing up the concrete in order to prevent the breakdown of aggregates, which have a detrimental effect on the efficiency and fouling of concrete.
To trucks carrying the mixing cup, the truck is a mixer or tricycle truck.
