The mixer is at the heart of any concrete batching plant. Astec is a leading manufacturer of concrete mixers.
Astec concrete batch plants can accommodate any type of mixer available on the market. Astec's extensive line of concrete plant components includes several mixer choices including tilt, horizontal reversing, planetary, and twin shaft mixers. The tilt mixer offers a comparatively large batch of concrete mix with low maintenance and fast homogenous mixing action while the twin shaft mixer can ensure an even mixture of concrete through the use of high horsepower motors. A horizontal reversing mixer can be added to increase plant production. Planetary mixers are most commonly used for precast and pre-stressed concrete.
