Truck engine with power take-off (PTO)
A load-sensing system for when loading (filling) which is connected to the truck PTO (power take-off).
Located at the top of the Cosmix, the aggregate hopper stores the premixed sand, gravel, stone or other aggregates. It is split into two hoppers totalling 9m³ (4m³ and 5m³).
The cement hopper is 2.5m³. It has a hydraulic driven auger conveyor with a proportional valve that is able to adjust the cement flow to the mixing system.
This is an anti-sticking system involving five vibrators (24VDC). There are two for the aggregate hopper, two for the cement hopper, and – if present – one for the powder additive hopper (this hopper is available as an optional upgrade).
Hydraulic tarp cover
The PVC foldable tarp cover protects the aggregates from wind and rough terrain, helping to stop the material from falling to the ground.
The conveyor system has a variable speed, combined metal and rubber belt. The system adjusts the aggregates’ flow to the mixing auger. It uses a hydraulic driving system with proportional valve.
Automatic aggregates dosage system
The automatic aggregates dosage system consists of two gates. Between them, proportional openings are driven by a hydraulic distributor.
Rear end assembly, including mixing auger
The 300mm mixing auger has been designed to ensure a high mixing capacity without compromising the maximum flow rate.
The discharging chute has four modular conveying funnels, which can be connected to adjust the conveying pouring distance.
Water supplying and metering system
The water delivery system includes all the necessary parts to precisely dose and control the water addition to the mix, emphasising the importance of the cement to water ratio.
The admixture system, which includes two liquid additive systems, can be operated independently.
Cement fill-up via pneumatic system preparation
The pneumatic fill-up system is used to fill the hopper. This system includes the pipe, connection and the breather element with an integrated filter on top of the hopper.
