J.W. Peters completes Project in Record Time with Mobile Agitor
Concrete Transporter for SCC and Structural Concrete for Pre-stress
Maxon Industries recently introduced the Mobile Agitor, a self-propelled concrete transporter and placer for pre-stress Concrete applications. The Mobile Agitor can transport, agitate and place up to 10 cubic yards of SCC (Self-Consolidating Concrete) in one trip.
For J.W. Peters, located in Burlington, Wisconsin, the Mobile Agitor has increased both production and quality of the finished product, allowing Peters to produce the components for the Bayshore Mall 400 car parking structure in record time. With the Maxon Mobile Agitor, Peters was able to transport and place twice the volume of SCC compared to past methods. In some cases the pour cycle for one column was reduced from 25 minutes to 6 minutes. The Mobile Agitor also allowed Peters to pour larger columns and beams in one pass, eliminating cold joints and additional hand finishing of the product.
The unique features of the Mobile Agitor provide delivery of quality SCC every time. The Maxon Mobile Agitor is equipped with a bi-rotational multi-speed full sweep agitator shaft that insures the SCC will not segregate during transport from the batch plant to the forms, a problem that occurred in the past with prior concrete transporters.
Mobile Agitor Advantages:
- Deliver up to 10 cubic yards of concrete or SCC in one load.
- Agitate or remix concrete and SCC in transit to insure delivery of quality product.
- Pour beams, columns or double tees with the same piece of equipment.
- Discharge up to 10 cubic yards of concrete in less than 3 minutes.
