The ORU MX single-axle mixer (the heart of the system), owing to its operating system, can mix the various
types of material with different specific gravities, such as light concretes, expanded concretes, expanded
clay, polystyrene, sandy mixes, mortars and concretes of all classes (from S1 to S5 with no difficulty
whatsoever). Owing to the layout of the helix-shaped blades which create a flow and a backflow, movement
of the material inside the mixing case takes place by continuous lifting/overturning together with movements
from right to left and vice versa..
As may be easily understood and demonstrated, this type of motion is the most effective and allows the mixing of materials that differ from one another, both in terms of specific gravity and class (at the most the mixing time changes). In the case of very wet concretes (class S5) or with higher mixing time than standard, with this mixer no adverse effects take place on the material (segregation of materials) and no grout comes out of the discharge mouth, as occurs in other types of mixers with the outlet located in the bottom part during mixing. In addition, also with very dry concretes (class S1 – S2) the effect of overturning the material warrants the quality of the mix.
