How Often Should I Plan Concrete Removal for My Drums and Central Mixers?

While best practices vary based on average use, specific jobs and similar circumstances, at General Chipping we advise concrete removal services every three months. Let us explain why.

Dried concrete forms along the insides of your valued equipment every time you transport and pour concrete. While it might not seem like cause for concern from the start, as buildup grows, so do your potential problems. Dried concrete can throw off the balance of the drum, slowing the mixing process — and throwing your team off schedule. It also puts undue stress on your equipment, leading to breakdowns and costly repairs.

Don’t forget your concrete mix. That can be affected, too. Mixing new batches inside a “dirty” drum can mean inconsistent blends, with hardened bits finding their way into your otherwise smooth mix. While this can affect the finished product’s look and overall strength, it doesn’t end there. An imperfect job often damages relationships with valued clients.

Setting up a regular maintenance schedule is a simple way to keep your mixer running at its very best, and General Chipping is here to help. You can always contact us through our website, or by calling 1.866.343.8295. If email is more your speed, that works, too. Reach us at info@generalchipping.com. We hope to hear from you soon!
