14. Concrete Mixer Truck

A concrete mixer (often mistakenly called a cement mixer) is a device that homogeneously combines cement, aggregate such as sand or gravel, and water to form concrete. A typical concrete mixer uses a revolving drum to mix the components.

For smaller volume works portable concrete mixers are often used so that the concrete can be made at the construction site, giving the workers ample time to use the concrete before it hardens. An alternative to a machine is mixing concrete by hand.

This is usually done in a wheelbarrow; however, several companies have recently begun to sell modified tarps for this purpose.

Special concrete transport trucks (in–transit mixers) are made to transport and mix concrete up to the construction site. They can be charged with dry materials and water, with the mixing occurring during transport.

They can also be loaded from a “central mix” plant, with this process the material has already been mixed prior to loading. The concrete mixing transport truck maintains the material’s liquid state through agitation, or turning of the drum, until delivery.

The interior of the drum on a concrete mixing truck is fitted with a spiral blade. In one rotational direction, the concrete is pushed deeper into the drum. This is the direction the drum is rotated while the concrete is being transported to the building site.
