Method Engineering have manufactured many Hydro Mixers over several years and range in size from 1.5m to 7m in length. They are used in mining, quarrying and agricultural applications and as the name suggests for mixing materials and sometimes for breaking materials down in to a more appropriate form. The example shown below was to be installed in a European powder station.
Not only involved in the fabrication aspect of this project, Method Engineering were also tasked with the mechanical aspect, powder coating and final assembly. The two geared shafts, motor and bearing assemblies were assembled, installed and set prior to final inspection by the customer and shipping to Europe.
Some of the previously manufactured Hydro Mixers are also fitted with spray arms as a dust suppression aid.
