At Excon, Liebherr showcased the space-saving batching plant Compactmix 1.0 with 60 m¦ capacity per hour and top technology truck mixers for most economical concrete transport.
A very popular model in Liebherr´s extensive range of batching plants, the Compactmix 1.0, is capable of a maximum discharge output of 60 m¦ of compacted concrete per hour. The space-saving overall concept and the flexible 180¦ truck mixer approach angle underneath the plant enables to position the mixer in a relatively small area. Despite the compact construction, all components are within easy and convenient reach. Most of the steel parts are zinc-coated, ensuring excellent corrosion protection and therefore, a long working life.
The Compactmix 1.0 has been designed particularly with use as a semi- mobile concrete mixer in mind when mounted on a skid foundation but can also be operated without any difficulty on any construction sites, thanks to its modular design. The compact batching plant is equipped with the tried-and-tested Liebherr RIM 1.0 ring-pan mixer with 1 m¦ rated capacity or 1,500 litres volume. The mixing system is available with either a mechanical or a hydraulic whirler (Agitator) system. Whirler systems are especially beneficial if there is a need for particularly high concrete quality or if additives or colouring agents are part of the mix for a homogenous mix. This is why the Compactmix 1.0 is ideally suited to the prefab and concrete-products industry, where low slump is required.
The basic format of the Compactmix 1.0 can, if desired, be combined with in-line bins, pocket bins or star bins. The in-line bins are available in various size configurations. Thus, storage compartments of volume of 35 m¦ each up to five compartments can be accommodated for different aggregates.
As with all other Liebherr concrete mixers, many useful options are available for the new Compactmix 1.0, like additive scales, high-pressure mixer cleaning equipment, housings and winter fittings. There is an optional extension to the mixer´s skip, meaning that the inline bins can be positioned lower, thus reducing the need for ramping facilities or direct dumping from the truck is possible.
HTM 604+ PTO and slave engine truck mixers
Liebherr also presented two HTM 604+ truck mixers. They have a capacity of 6 m¦ with additional capacity of 0.5m3each. One HTM is a truck mixer with PTO drive mounted on a MAN 25:220 chassis. The other HTM has a slave engine drive and Ashok Leyland 2518 chassis.
Liebherr builds its own mixers in house to the highest quality standards, using special grade of steel with high wear resistance, low centre of gravity for good road dynamics. Liebherr machines are designed in such a way that safety is priority without compromising on quality. Delivering concrete economically means fast loading, rapid road travel and no loss of time when discharging at site. Liebherr truck mixers are designed for maximum user benefit in all these areas.
