Testing high-performance and special concrete in the laboratory mixer

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)

Versatile high-performance mixer

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.

The right feature set for any application:

Optilong wear protection

Optilong wear protection

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

Monitoring the mixing operation

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.

Engineering and delivery of a high-performance mixer for the production of UHPC

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.

Success stories

TWINMIX system accelerates highway reconstruction in Switzerland for KIBAG AG

Project managers used Ultra-High-Performance Concrete (UHPC) for the first time to reconstruct the major highway connection between the villages of Küssnacht and Brunnen and significantly reduce construction time. As the requirements for the mixing process are rather high, the Swiss company KIBAG AG selected an ultra-modern, rapidly deployable concrete mixing system. Two high-performance twin-shaft batch mixers form the core of the system.
