MP | PLANETARY MIXER
The size of our Planetary Mixers ranges from 0,3 cu.yd to 5,3 cu.yd of compacted concrete output, covering every possible need from small laboratory mixers to the largest production plants. The excellent performance of SICOMA-OMG Planetary Mixers are recognized in several application fields: readymix concrete, production of prestressed / precast elements, block and pavers, concrete pipes, dry mortar mix, but also in different sectors such as glass, refractory materials for foundries and chemical products. Depending on the type of application, the mixers can be equipped with several accessories and options to optimize their productivity, mixing quality and life expectancy. Whenever necessary, we work with our customers in the development of new solutions that best suit their specific needs.
With 70 years of mechanical experience, Sicoma has created a gearbox virtually indestructible. The huge double horizontal design is strong and shock resistant. The wide horizontal oil bath is cool running and gives every gear optimum lubrication. It is good for life and carries a 5 year, 10,000 hour warranty.
Complete the mixing action and give fast discharge. Cast from Ni-hard iron, 550 HB minimum, for extreme wear resistance. Outer edges are thickened to equalize wear and the angle of attack is optimized to push, not slice, to maximize both mixing and blade life.
SICOMA’s mixing action starts with the arms, which are responsible for most of the mixing, from top to bottom. Three cast iron arms per star, two stars starting from MP 1875/1250 and three stars for MP 4500/3000 and MP6000/4000. Together with two hardened steel scraping arms they are the best for toughness plus abrasion resistance. Adjustment slots allow easy blade adjustment to compensate for wear.
0,6 in Ni-hard cast iron tiles give many times the life of abrasion resistant steel liner plates, reducing lifetime cost. Bolted assembly makes replacement a simple task; in addition, the wall plates are reversible to increase life even further. Additionally, tight fabrication tolerances mean that blades can be adjusted close to walls and floor for perfect cleanout between batches, ensuring the best performance on coloured products.
HYDRAULIC POWER PACK
It has plenty of capacity to operate doors reliably in even the largest mixer. Manual lever allows the door dual use, to be opened during power loss and to be closed right after.
Up to four swing-out sector doors running in rubber seals are completely watertight, non-jamming and low in maintenance, further reducing lifetime cost. All models are hydraulically powered, but for small ones is also available a choice between pneumatic or manual operation.
Widest opening of any, to give faster cleanup and adjustment of wear parts while making the process safer all round. One, two or three-part depending on mixer size. Single piece cover with hydraulic lift for easiest access is optional in largest models.
