ELE International has developed a mortar mixer with automatic and manual function to prepare cement mortar mixes to the latest international testing standards, including the recent changes to EN 196
The new machine is designed to be simple and fast to operate, enabling users to increase the throughput of tests considerably.
The ELE Automatic/Manual Mortar Mixer enables carefully controlled cement mortar mixes to be prepared for moulding prisms for subsequent flexural and compressive strength testing.
With the correct preparation of the mortar ingredients essential to obtain a homogenous mix for consistent and repeatable test results, the machine's mixing paddle and bowl have been specially designed in accordance with industry standards, to avoid breaking down the sand particles that could affect the final strength.
The mixer features a simple to use control panel, incorporating an intuitive rotary switch control for the selection of either pre-defined mix programs or automatic or manual mixing mode.
When set to automatic, the microprocessor controlled unit carries out the required mixing cycle as specified in the latest testing standards, preparing accurate and consistent sample mixes..
Additionally, the mixer's new motor control system enables the machine to be reprogrammed at any time as necessary to satisfy standard revisions that specify new mixing cycles.
Sand and water can be easily added at the appropriate time in the mixing cycle, with the addition of optional dispensers.
When set to manual mode the mixer can be used as a two-speed general-purpose mixer.
The ELE Automatic/Manual Mortar Mixer features rugged construction enabling it withstand the rigours of regular use and offer long service life, making it ideal for use by cement manufacturers and private testing laboratories.
