MASTERMIX - fast & flexible moisture control for concrete mixers
Combine a rugged microwave
sensor with the power of BatchTron plus some advanced software and what
do you get? A major saving over competitive systems while maintaining
top performance and BatchTron's solid reliability. When you need really accurate control of slump for wet
cast or moisture for dry cast, MasterMix will give you fantastic
performance; speed and accuracy second to none.
measures the moisture of the ingredients after they enter the mixer.
Based on the known weight of materials in the mixer, the water required for
the mix is calculated from the formula value minus the amount contained in
the aggregates. The water is then added quickly via fast and slow
valves. This method is fast and very accurate.
If speed is important, MasterMix will maximize the use of your mixer.
microwave sensor is unaffected by the type of cement, admixtures and
temperature variation. Unlike older systems based on resistance,
measurement is accurate at all times, giving you perfect moisture, batch
- Fast and slow feed valves add water to the mix quickly
and accurately, giving the shortest possible total mixing time.
More batches per hour.
- Water target can be based on water/cement ratio for
wet cast or water/total solids ratio for dry cast, pavers and block, giving you the right type of measurement for your product.
- Water calculation is based on actual weights of
ingredients rather than targets, further enhancing
- Because it uses the BatchTron computer for control,
the system requires only the sensor, water valves, meter and software,
resulting in a large saving over a stand-alone moisture controller.
uses BatchTron's graphic touch
screen for display and control, making it easy
to set up and operate.
moisture trend graph allows the operator to view the mixing action as it
proceeds. Window on the mixing process shows up badly adjusted or worn
ensuring proper mixing action.
- Target water or moisture values and choice of Standard
or Lightweight concrete are stored in the batch formulas, allowing different
moistures and mixing sequences to be preset for different products.
This type of integration is easy with MasterMix but difficult or impossible
between separate batching and moisture controllers.
The difference between MasterMix and
MasterMix and Fast MicroMix are for fast, high production plants where the mixer never takes a break.
It allows more pours per hour because of its fast operation. It is equally
suitable for both wet and dry cast concrete.
is for the slow to medium production plant where the mixer waits between batches
and longer mixing cycles will not
slow down production. It is a simpler system which costs less. It is suitable
only for dry cast concrete.
MasterMix or Fast MicroMix and a well adjusted mixer, you will
make better product at higher speed, saving money
and increasing profit.
Why do we have both MasterMix and
AquaControl is a
stand-alone water dosing system for use with separate batching controllers.
It can be used with BatchTron but is more expensive than MasterMix, which is built into the BatchTron system. Both are
identical in performance, however, giving you the same tremendous speed and
includes the sensor, valves, water meter, input unit for the
BatchTron computer and special software. Because it runs on BatchTron's
computer instead of a separate controller,
it costs less than other microwave systems
but gives phenomenal performance. Call us or use our
