HIGH PRESSURE WASHOUT - extra production, improved safety

High Pressure Washout automatically cleans all types of concrete mixer. Faster cleanup gives 15 to 30 minutes extra production each day.  This translates to over 5% more productivity every day, at no extra cost. And it guarantees safety - no need to enter the mixer.  Payback is a few months in most cases.  You will have better employee morale and safety. Easily installed rotating jets are fully automatic.

The high pressure pump unit,  1000 psi pressure at full flow of 20 gpm to suit all concrete mixers up to 12000/8000 (10.5 yd) size.  The reservoir is sized for a full wash cycle with automatic refill and low-water pump shutoff.  Coupled with Scale-Tron’s control unit, the complete system is a highly effective, reliable and flexible solution that automatically cleans concrete mixers. The video at right explains how it cleans so effectively and how it can pay for itself in a short time.

To see the LC200 head, our smallest with only 3 jets, in operation at our shipping dock, Click here.  Positioned near a 5 year buildup of road dirt and grit, watch how each sweep of the jet cuts a path right through it.  It can do the same with the concrete buildup on your mixer floor, paddles and walls.

Before: A new Voeller 4 yd mixer has been in use for a week, each day a full shift, mixing SCC concrete and has been cleaned with the washout system each day.  Note buildup on arms after the shift.

After: Three LC200 heads have done their job.  80 gallons at 900 psi as the mixer is running give a thorough cleaning cycle.  All surfaces have been covered with the LC200's rotating action, leaving the mixer like new.

"Our High pressure Washout gives tremendous performance and it saves 1/2 hour every day.  The hand cleanup gun is a powerful tool".  Buzz Morgan, Lindsay precast.
