Key product features

Mixer control system

The control system of the End-over-End Drum Mixer

Mixer control system

Our electric model features an electric-hydraulic interface to provide you with precise control; the panel includes a mix timer, variable RPM controller, docking functions and LED-light indicators. The pneumatic ATEX control interface omits any electrical components to make it safe in potentially explosive atmospheres: the panel has a jog function in place of the electric docking feature.

Easy drum loading

Easy drum loading

You can use any of our STS drum depalletisers to easily load and unload the drum mixer. Alternatively, you can use a forklift drum attachment. However you choose to load and unload your mixer, it’s important that you do it in a safe and ergonomic way.

Robust drum-securing method

Robust drum-securing method

You can secure drums of 200-205 litres into the rotator head using the high-quality screw-top clamping bar. The adjustable clamping bar allows you to clamp drums of 830-930mm in height effectively. Once secured, close the gates and you can begin mixing safely.

Fully compliant safety guarding

Fully compliant safety guarding

In compliance with the EU Machinery Directive, we manufacture our drum mixers with a full guarding arrangement as standard. The guarding surrounds the unit and prevents access to the drum during mixing.

Safety gate interlocks

Safety gate interlocks

Both the ATEX and non-ATEX mixers feature safety gate interlocks: only once the gates have been closed can you activate the mixing function. To protect you and your operators, we've engineered an additional safety feature: should the gates be opened during a mix cycle, the unit will stop mixing immediately.
