Rapid International, recently supplied Eco Readymix, one of the UK’s largest ready-mix concrete, mortar and floor screed suppliers, with a new R3000 3.0m3 Rapid pan concrete mixer. The new concrete mixer forms an integral part of the company’s new batching plant, situated at their Ellesmere Port site and will produce circa 70,000m3 of material annually.
The new R3000 3.0m3 Rapid pan mixer, outputs 3m3 per batch and provides double batching, which according to Gary Billington, Managing Director – Eco Readymix, “…is a big benefit for us to increase our truck turn arounds, whilst loading.”
„Uniform & precise“ batching for Eco Readymix
The Rapid pan mixer has been specifically designed with the ready-mix industry in mind, offering high outputs and fast discharge time. The pan’s mixing arms ensure all materials are kept in constant motion, in every direction, providing a thoroughly homogenized mix. The Rapid pan features durable chill cast tiles, wear sleeves and paddles, as standard. Safety concerns are mitigated with spring tensioned mixing arms. The mixer is complete with an up-rated gearbox, supplied by a specialist gearbox manufacturer.
Commenting on his satisfaction with the new Rapid mixer, Mr. Gary Billington, Managing Director – Eco Readymix, said, “We are delighted with our new Rapid R3000 pan concrete mixer and it is batching to perfection at Ellesmere Port’s new plant. Despite other manufacturers trying to improve their rival pan mixers for some 20 years, we believe nothing works as well as the Rapid mixer. We have been using the Rapid R1500 in our Ruabon depot for 8 years now, with no issues and it still runs faultlessly 6 days a week. This is unlike its predecessor, from another European mixer manufacturer, that was double the price and lasted all of 10 months.” Mr. Billington concluded, “As for Rapid’s customer service and after-care, we couldn’t speak highly enough of our dealings with the team. From sales, to fulfilment, to post install advice, Rapid have been there every step of the way and all in all we couldn’t be happier with the end result!”
