BISHOPSTOWN, UK – Core Grouting Services, an Acteon company, has commissioned a new high-volume, high-strength grout mixing and pumping unit. The equipment is designed for mixing and pumping high-strength grout with a compressive strength greater than 100 MPa (14,500 psi). These grouts are used in offshore foundations.
Based on tests performed at Core's headquarters in Cork, Ireland, the unit will produce 12–14 cu m (424–494 cu ft) per hour of grout.
Colin Barrett, equipment manager at Core, said, “Our new mixer unit uses orbital planetary mixers. This is a huge improvement on the current pan mixer type, as orbital planetary mixers enable more effective mixing of the grout. We can now mix large volumes of grout uniformly and quickly, enabling our customers to keep their projects moving.”
