EXPERIENCE AND KNOW HOW
SICOMA have been producing Turbine ( Pan ) mixers for more than 30 years, utilising the expertise gained by the parent company OMG in the production of planetary mixers for the past 50 years. The know how from the planetary mixer production was the basis for the high quality and up to date design and production methods used for the Sicoma Turbine mixers.
The Manufacturing Procedures used by O.M.G. for the manufacturing of all SICOMA Mixers have been compliant with the Quality Requirements of ISO 9001 since 1995 and have been upgraded and approved by CERMET in 2009 as compliant to ISO 9001:2008.
Since 1999 all Mixers are designed and constantly improved with the use of three dimensional modeling softwares.
CNC MACHINE CENTER
The steel fabrication of the mixer tank and several parts of Sicoma Mixers are CNC machined to guarantee the necessary accuracy and to reduce the time of assembly.
The Shafts’ Seals as well as other particular features typical of Sicoma Mixers are protected by International Patents.
All Sicoma Turbine mixers can be shipped in standard open top containers or trucks due to the fact that the tank can be separated into two or more bolted segments. Re assembly on site is simple and quick as the segments are located on positioning pins and then bolted together. The tank walls and floor are lined in wear resistant steel plates. Under request, they can be lined with Ni-Hard plates.
MIXING ARM SPRING SYSTEM
All the mixing arms are connected to the rotating drive system with spring shock absorbers operated by cams. This system absorbs any shock loads caused by the mix blades hitting obstructions and protects the drive gearbox. It also allows easy adjustment of the mix blades clearance to the tank floor.
AGITATOR AND DISCHARGE ACCELERATOR SYSTEM
SICOMA Turbine mixers can be fitted with one or twin rotating agitator systems to increase mixing efficiency and to reduce the mix cycle time. A special discharge blade can further reduce the total mixing cycle time.
All parts of the discharge door/s are produced using very accurate CNC machining and the full door assembly is then bolted to the tank. This guarantees the correct positioning of the door and that the door segment rotates in a perfect arc and is in contact with the rubber door seal on the tank. This prevents any unwanted leakage when the door is closed and prevents any possibility of the door jamming.
HIGH PRESSURE WASHOUT
Two high pressure rotating stainless steel spray bars with adjustable spray nozzles fixed to the drive turret wash the mixer floor very thoroughly and a further two fixed bars wash the arms and mixing paddles as they rotate, as well as the pan walls.
All Sicoma turbine mixers have a range of optional accessories available, these include aggregate skip hoists, cement weigh hoppers, water weighing systems, dust reducing airbags, high pressure wash systems, accelerated discharge blades and multiple discharge doors. All accessories are pre-assembled in the factory to guarantee minimum assembly time on site.
(*) In order to identify the productivity of the mixer, two parameters must be taken into consideration:
1. Maximum Weight of the Mix, on the basis of the usual specific weight of concrete (150 lb/ft³or 2400 kg/m³)
2. Maximum Volume occupied by all batch components charged into the mixer, not exceeding the Dry Filling Capacity.
(**) 1 or 2 agitators.
