Modern concrete formulations place special demands on the mixing technology. We support you with our innovative, reliable solutions. The twin-shaft batch mixer (type DKX) from BHS is available in different versions with a wide range of configuration options. As a result, it caters to virtually any application scenario: This includes special lightweight concrete for insulation walls; heavy concrete for pipeline construction; high-performance concrete (HPC) for wind power plants; ultra high-performance concrete (UHPC) for architectural masterpieces or bridge renovations, and countless more – whatever your project, you will find the right system at BHS.
We offer a laboratory mixer (type DKX 0.06), whose 60-liter mixing volume represents a suitably scaled-down load of our twin-shaft batch mixer. It is designed to emulate production machinery down to every detail.
Twin-shaft batch mixer (DKX)
Concrete admixtures and additives are distributed quickly, evenly and effectively. The fields of application of the twin-shaft batch mixer range from fine to coarse, from hot to cold, from light to heavy, and from wet to dry.
Optilong is our special, durable wear protection. The variable hardness of the individual tile rows ensures uniform abrasion across all wear zones.
Smooth mixing tools reduce adhesions to a minimum, even when processing sticky mixtures.
A twin mixing mechanism processes the mixture with higher shear forces.
Precise monitoring of the mixing process is possible with the help of various components. Depending on customer requirements, we can equip our mixers with probes for consistency or for temperature measurement, a device for taking samples, or a video camera.
Shorter construction times thanks to BHS-Sonthofen twin-shaft batch mixers: For the renovation of three highway overpasses in Switzerland, we assisted KIBAG with a complete mixing system for ultra-high performance concrete (UHPC). Mixing this highly abrasive material is a demanding task, but it’s an easy feat for the twin-shaft batch mixer as you can see in the video.
