The tracked machine has been designed in response to growing demand for a mobile continuous mixing plant that provides easy transportation without the need for special transport permits.

Patent pending features include a controls system that weighs all materials and a double hopper cement weighing system.

The Portadown-based manufacturer says that other design highlights include low friction surface lining on hoppers, bottom conveyor for easy cleanout and out-loading conveyor for easy discharge.

Trakmix offers outputs of up to 250 tonnes per hour via a continuous Rapid twin-shaft mixer and 12.0 m3 aggregate hopper, which includes a division plate for two different types of aggregates.

Full weighing capabilities are provided via an integral control system. Adjustable feeder gates from the aggregate bins are provided in addition to a variable speed belt feeder to aggregate weigh belt. Powders are fully weighed via a twin hopper system with twin-screw discharge and the flow-meter provides metering of the water. An integral 600 litre water tank and provision for admixtures are also included as standard.
