The twin-shaft continuous mixer of type LFK is an efficient, reliable solution for continuous mixing processes, especially when handling coarser particles. The mixer is particularly suitable for the production of mineral mixtures, hydraulically-bound base layer concrete, landfill sealings, lean concrete, heavy concrete, dry mixtures etc. BHS also offers complete continuous mixing plants including sophisticated weighing, dosing and control technology as well as individual plant components.
The mixing tools engage the continuously fed input material and convey it onward. Water is added by means of special nozzles.
The counter-rotating movements of the two mixing shafts and the inclined mixing tools ensure intensive vertical and horizontal mixing and continuous transport of the mixture.
The mixture leaves the mixer continuously, allowing for transport to downstream systems.
Two trough designs – square and round – are available to address different requirements of the input material. When mixing coarse materials, a square trough has proven most suitable. The natural material bed offers optimum wear protection. We recommend the round trough design when mixing fine materials.
For mixing cohesive, fine-grained materials, special comb blades are available for the removal of material adhesions on the mixing trough.
The hydrodynamic fluid coupling prevents both mechanical and electrical load peaks. Its use is recommended in particular if unstable electricity supply conditions prevail on site.
A central lubrication system continuously supplies the internal mixing trough seals with grease during mixing operation. Different designs are available depending on the desired degree of automation.
For use in loading stations of quarries, the mixer can be installed on a mobile platform to enable product changes between single grain and grain mixtures.
A discharge hopper with segment closure and integrated drip protection is available for loading onto open trucks. For loading onto truck mixers, we recommend a discharge hopper with an auxiliary swivel-capable hopper.
The hopper mounted on the mixer allows for the direct loading of grain mixtures onto open trucks or truck mixers, bypassing the mixer.
The BHS twin-shaft continuous mixer fitted with a round mixing trough is recommended for applications where low-residue discharge is essential. The trough is lined with tiles made of a special chilled cast chrome alloy.
A special sealing-air seal is available for mixing dry materials that must not be contaminated with lubricants.

|Soils||Gardening soil, soil improvers|
BHS offers complete continuous mixing plants of various sizes based on the twin-shaft continuous mixer. The mixing and weighing platforms are designed for easy and cost-efficient transport to the installation site in an ISO container. The batcher and the control technology allow operators to continuously weigh and adjust the formulation’s components with great precision. Continuous mixing plants address the needs of construction sites where large volumes of building materials (e.g., RCC) is required at consistently high quality.
The aggregates are stored in a multi-chamber metering system
Speed-controlled metering belts with integrated belt weighers weigh the aggregates continuously and in precise accordance with the formulation.
The aggregates are metered in layers onto the collecting belt and fed to the twin-shaft continuous mixer via the ascending belt.
The binding agents are stored in silos. There, the fill level is measured continuously, and air loosening systems and control devices consistently monitor the filling process.
The binders are fed to the weighing and metering station via tubular screw conveyors. The screw conveyors are equipped with outlet flaps.
The self-calibrating twin weighing system facilitates exceptionally high metering accuracy. It consists of a hopper scale with a speed-controlled rotary valve as the discharge unit and a screw scale for continuous data measurement value acquisition.
In the BHS twin-shaft continuous mixer, which is mounted on a generously dimensioned mixer platform, the various materials are mixed thoroughly.
Additives are metered via speed-controlled gear pumps. The water is metered via a control valve. Quantities are recorded via an inductive flow meter.
A compressor station supplies the entire mixing plant with compressed air.
A discharge belt transports the mix directly to the construction site or to the truck loading bay.
The control station and power control are housed in an air-conditioned 20-foot container.
