Model 1670 - Industrial Mixers
From Industrial Mixers
Progressive compost technicians know once a proper recipe has been selected, mixing the ingredients is essential to ensure rapid decomposition and quality compost. One of the major benefits of mixing is to uniformly distribute nutrients and microorganisms throughout the compost pile. The ROTO–MIX design combines gentle tumbling with quick complete mixing to save time and improve your bottom line. The ROTO–MIX conveyor can be used to build windrows or static piles. ROTO–MIX has a complete line of Industrial Mixers—one that will meet your needs today and tomorrow.
The ROTO–MIX system protects particle size with less grinding or compaction. Particle size and porosity are critical because it determines how well air can enter and diffuse into the composting mass.
With better air introduction and distribution, ROTO–MIX consistently produces quality compost by lifting the ingredients past the lower auger’s wedge point, resulting in a fluffier mixture that starts to compost faster.
Totally Mixed Compost
Our thorough mixing action eliminates dead spots, auger tunneling and corner pile-up giving a consistent balance of nutrients and microorganisms from the first yard of compost to the last.
Mixes all types of compost ingredients, solid waste, yard waste, food waste, sludge and amendments, animal manure and a number of others with consistency day after day.
Industrial Scale Check System
Load-cell mounting comes standard with ROTO–MIX ball and socket type tie bars to connect the mixer to the frame. This feature eliminates side and end movement on the load cells, which allow for scale dependability and accuracy.
Optional hydraulic folding conveyor up to 120' long gives you ability to build windrows, static piles or load truck fast and efficiently. We also have a portable stand-alone conveyor for stationary models.
The forward pitch rotor design, adjustable UHMW wiper blades, and the rotation of the lower auger quickly and efficiently cleans out the mixing chamber.
Easy Access Rear Doors
The single lever latch makes inspection easy and desirable compared to other little latches or hardware.
Single Point Grease Bank
Allows quick lubrication from a single point. Heavy-duty drive assembly runs in an enclosed oil bath.
Lower Center of Gravity
A lower center of gravity makes for a more stable unit when making windrows and less shock load when cornering.
Forward Pitched Rotor
The patented rotor lifts ingredients up to the side augers that move the ingredients from end-to-end for thorough mixing. The lifting action of the rotor eliminates wedging of the compost under the lower auger. Patented tumbling design reduces mixing power requirements.
Industrial Duty Drive Train
Spline shafts eliminate shearing of keys and gaulding of shafts. Heavy-duty chains and bearings extend life and reduce downtime.
3⁄4', 5⁄8' and 1⁄2' flighting available for lower auger to extend life. Top augers available in 3⁄8' and 1⁄2' flighting.
The flared side allows ingredients to tumble out of the rotor speeding up the mixing action and reducing the chance for ingredients to get trapped inside the rotor.
Full Scale Frame
Sturdy box frame construction with rectangular tubing for increased stability and weighing accuracy. Scale frame assembly allows scale frame to float independent of truck frame.
