Your volumetric concrete mixer plays a key role in your company’s day-to-day operations. It accompanies you to jobsites, provides the material you need to get your work done and is always ready to tackle the next big task. It goes without saying that you want to keep this important piece of machinery working its very best. So should you have it chipped on a regular basis?
The simple answer — and it might surprise you — is, no. Allow us to explain.
While traditional mixers create large batches of concrete and transport it to the jobsite, volumetric mixers operate differently. They create custom blends onsite, providing the exact amount of concrete you need for the project at hand. No more, no less. Because you don’t have excess product lingering inside the machine, there’s no need to worry about dried concrete forming along the walls of your mixer.
Of course, if your team utilizes both volumetric and traditional concrete mixers on the job, regular chippings are still important. Remember, we recommend you have concrete removed from your drums every three months.
