CON-TECH MANUFACTURING HIGH PERFORMANCE DRUM Con-tech Manufacturing
Con-techCon-techUnveiled at the 2013 World of Concrete, the HP is engineered for standard and paving configurations, and fabricated from A.R. steel. With an eye to uniform loads and reduced mix buildup, it features strategically placed paddles to break apart dry cement balls and a self-cleaning fin design with 2-in. holes allowing material to flow through blades.
The High Performance Drum has a short cone whose fin and spiral design enables fast charging. A straight taper cone eliminates surging for smooth discharge and even flow, while the high capacity head and belly sections allow more material in the mixing bowl. The A.R. steel specification nets 1/4-in. and 5/16-in. thick heads that are lighter and more uniform than spun head alternatives. The drum's solid roller track eliminates flexing and cracking, and provides a 300 percent-plus increase in contact surface area compared to a hollow track. — 507/374-2239; www.ctmixers.com
