The next generation of the high-performance mixerMasa HPM 2
Porta Westfalica 15 Jul 2022 - Masa has an intensive dialog with the plant operators. Based on this, the Masa team planned, designed and built the HPM 2 high-performance mixer. As a new mixer generation, the HPM 2 already represents a today's solution for an AAC production of tomorrow.
When high-quality autoclaved aerated concrete is produced, all required raw materials come together for the first time in the high-performance mixer. The mixer determines the quality of the finished products and is the heart of the complete plant thus. Although the performance data of the previous Masa mixers are very high already, Masa wants to enable their customers to prepare for increasing requirements of the future building materials market. Growing quality and density requirements as well as an optimized energy consumption at optimal cost are the tasks that have to be accomplished. To meet these requirements further on, the mixing process has to be optimized continuously.
For the development of the new high-performance mixer HPM 2, the service experience and customer feedback were considered and evaluated. This resulted in the optimization of various details which in total meant a considerable improvement, compared to previous mixers.
Potential 1: Way and energy optimization
- Optimized raw material feeding by piping system
- Optimized feeding of slurries
- Optimized speed of the stirring device
Potential 2: Optimization of operating costs
- Extended service life of the mixing tool due to use of a frequency converter
- Easier access for maintenance
- Optimized change of tools
- Optimized cleaning process
Potential 3: Product-related optimization
- Adapted geometry of the mixer for products with low raw densities
The full article with all details on the optimization measures was published in the current issue 03/2022 of AAC worldwide.
