A 415V continuous mixing pump, hired from Kennards Concrete Care, provided a fast and efficient way of grouting around door frames during construction of a $42 million apartment complex in Wollongong, NSW. The Pioneer Sands development, which JABBcorp is building at Towradgi, includes 42 motel serviced apartments, 56 residential apartments, restaurant, gymnasium, function room, shops and swimming pool.
The continuous mixing pump , which was used to pump grout around door frames, included the following features:
- The 415V continuous mixing pump can mix and pump 100 to 180 bags of grout with up to 3mm of aggregate per hour
- The continuous mixing pump can also used for spray mortars, plasters and other fireproof materials
- Bags of material are emptied into a dry hopper, from where they are fed into a mixing and pumping chamber
JABBcorp site co-ordinator Brad Newton said “We were looking for an efficient way to do this, and the guys at Kennards Hire Corrimal put us on to Kennards Concrete Care,” he said. “The continuous feed of this machine was ideal. Once we got the consistency right, it flowed really well and definitely saved us a fair bit of time.”
