Concrete mixing trucks are essential machines in the world of construction, transporting high volumes of concrete every day. A typical concrete truck, also known as an in-transit mixer, can be loaded with dry materials and water, with the mixing occurring during transportation. Yet, mixed concrete can also be loaded directly into the mixing drum. The drum rotates to keep the concrete from starting to set, so it remains in a liquid state until it’s ready for delivery at the right location.
With a multi-purpose blade inside the drum, it mixes the concrete with ease. The blade runs the internal length of the drum in a spiral shape. While turning into the base of the drum, the blade mixes the concrete. When the rotation of the drum is reversed in the other direction, towards the opening of the drum, the spiral acts as an Archimedes screw.
