A transit mixer is multi-purpose equipment used for transporting concrete mortar to and from a concrete batching plant. The transit mixer is filled with dry ingredients and water; Transit mixers consist of a drum with a spiral blade that has the ability to move in two directions.
Here are some components of the transit mixer
A concrete transit mixer is essentially a truck that can transport concrete. The advantage of using this truck is that the mixing process continues even when it is in transit. It is highly durable and the concrete will stay in good condition for a long time, allowing the truck to travel great distances. These trucks also carry water and dry ingredients to ensure mixing during transport while keeping the concrete in usable condition. This is done with the help of a spiral blade present inside the drum of the truck.
In Transit Mix Concrete, all raw materials are loaded directly into the truck mixer. No plant mixer is included. Some or all of the mixing water is usually introduced into the plant. During loading, the mixer drum is rotated at the charging speed.

Future Trends- According to all statistics, the use of construction equipment, including transit mixers, is steadily increasing. As per the global market analysis from multiple sources, it is anticipated to increase in the near future. There are many advantages of using transit mixers which are quite evident from the global market data. The fact that it can mix concrete and transport it to a construction site is highly beneficial, especially when construction sites are located in remote areas or away from a concrete plant.
The added benefit of using a transit truck is that the mixer will not clot and prevent the effects of cement bowling during transit. This is a machine that saves drivers time and money by reducing waiting times and reducing fuel consumption.
Explain the working mythology of transit mixer
This machine consists of a supporting element which is a supporting frame. Discharge support with a discharge channel is mounted on this supporting frame, as well as a discharge feed hopper on the discharge support with the help of a tubular frame. The swiveling discharge chute is vertically adjustable as per the requirement with special support provided. It has an elliptical cross-section and is mounted on the discharge support by a reinforced double arm.
It is possible to extend the discharge slope by using an additional expansion slope. The gearbox with drum bearings is bolted to the bearing pedestal; It is fixed on the supporting frame with the help of U-bolts. The mixer drum consists of mixing spirals supported by two rollers in the discharge support; These highly wear-resistant.
However, when the concrete is being pumped the drum must rotate counter-clockwise. This type of rotation ensures optimum performance and also allows for easy discharge of concrete from the swiveling discharge tube.
