AMIX Systems offers a variety of mixing plants designed to meet the specific needs of engineers in construction, mining, and civil works. Whether you need a plant for lower, medium, or high output applications, AMIX has a solution that fits your project’s needs. For comprehensive information on each line, visit the respective product pages.

The heavy plants in the AGP series feature tangential entry ports that force the slurry to vortex within the mixing tank, promoting additional mixing and cleaning. Formed blades catch and force slurry down inside the lower section of the mixer, and the rotating mass of slurry is forced into the colloidal mill inlet, increasing efficiency and preventing plugging, clogging, and build-up of materials. This innovative design ensures that the heavy plants consistently produce homogeneous, uniform grout for increased pumping distance, bleed resistance, and void penetration.

The Magic Behind AMIX Systems Grout Plants

AMIX High-Shear Colloidal Mixer (ACM)

Meet the star of the show: the AMIX High-Shear Colloidal Mixer (ACM). This bad boy from the AGP series whips up super stable mixtures that don’t bleed and flow like a dream. It’s tough enough to handle gritty stuff like sanded mixes, making it a top choice for quality control in the industry (AMIX Systems).

The ACM technology is based on true colloidal mill shearing, with the colloidal mill shearing the cement particles. This sets it apart from competitive units that use a centrifugal pump to simulate shearing, which only serves as a recirculation pump and doesn’t have the same high-shear mixing qualities. The ACM features a high-speed rotor (discar) housed inside the colloidal mill, with minimal clearance between the discar and the walls. This is where the high turbulence and shearing break down clusters of dry cement particles (agglomerates), ensuring a homogeneous and uniform grout mix.

Mixing System Components

The AGP mixing system is like a well-oiled machine, literally. It’s got high-performance mills with high chrome replaceable liners, impellers, and mechanical seals that are built to last. With fewer moving parts, you’ll spend less time fixing stuff and more time getting the job done (AMIX Systems).

High Chrome LinersReplaceableLong-lasting and easy to swap out
ImpellersHigh-performanceMixes like a pro
Mechanical SealsHigh-performanceKeeps things running smoothly

The heavy plants in the AGP series are equipped with all wear components that have easily replaceable liners. The mixing impellers and replaceable liners are cast out of 29% chrome for durability and wear resistance. The shafts and bearings are much larger than those of competitors, with AGP shafts manufactured from heat-treated tool steel with replaceable wear sleeves. These heavy plants also utilize tough high-performance mechanical slurry seals, resulting in no leaking of grout, no downtime, and less maintenance.

Performance and Maintenance Perks

The Typhoon series is a champ when it comes to low wear and tear and minimal maintenance. It’s got automated self-cleaning features and can run all day, every day (AMIX Systems).

The Hurricane series is built for non-stop action with self-cleaning abilities, high uptime, and low wear and tear (AMIX Systems).

The Cyclone series takes the cake with the highest uptime and the least maintenance. It’s also self-cleaning and can go 24/7 without breaking a sweat (AMIX Systems).

The self-cleaning capabilities of the heavy plants in the AGP series, using batch water, significantly reduce downtime, clean-up, and maintenance requirements. This allows the heavy plants to operate continuously with minimal interruptions, increasing overall productivity and efficiency on the job site. The automated systems available with these heavy plants further reduce the need for additional field staff and ensure consistent mix quality, making them an ideal choice for projects with limited resources or tight deadlines.

Final Thoughts

AMIX Systems’ heavy plants and mixers offer unparalleled performance, reliability, and efficiency for grouting applications in construction, mining, and civil engineering projects. With their advanced technology, robust design, and customizable options, these heavy plants can handle the most challenging jobs while maintaining a low environmental impact and minimal maintenance requirements.

Whether you need a heavy plant for lower output applications like micropile grouting or high-volume projects such as tunnel grouting and large-scale infrastructure, AMIX Systems has the perfect solution for your needs. The AGP Typhoon, Hurricane, and Cyclone series provide a range of options to suit various project requirements, ensuring that you have the right equipment to get the job done efficiently and effectively.
