How to make a concrete mixer: analysis of 2 independent production options

Any construction work on the site, whethererection of foundation, screed or arrangement of blind area, can not do without the use of concrete solutions. Wanting to save money on the construction of many craftsmen knead it by hand. If for the manufacture of several liters of solution can do manual labor and conventional shovel, to obtain much better use of large amounts of a special mechanism - the mixer. The mechanism of such a device is quite simple. Thanks to those described in the article step by step instructions, anyone can figure out how to make the mixer with their own hands, and to make the right device at the farm for just one day.


Option # 1 - manual concrete mixer from the barrel

The easiest way mixer - a device propelled by manual power.

Handmade homemade concrete mixer

Handheld unit during operation provides involvement of large muscle strength. However, a woman can in incomplete filling of the container set in motion concrete mixer

Thinking through how to make the mixer tohome use, many owners try to choose an option that does not provide a large financial costs. The best option - making device of metal drums and frame welded from angles and rods.

The barrel is perfect as the capacity toCover with a capacity of 100 liters and above. With the ends of the cover drill holes for the placement of the shaft, and is mounted to the bottom of the cover flange bearings. Thereafter, the cylinder side hatch vyrezyut - 30x30 cm rectangular opening hatch desirable to place near the end which during operation will be located on the lower side..

For a snug fit in the hatchWork on the edges of the hatch devices need to stick soft rubber. Secure the barrel on the cut piece you can use loops on nuts and bolts or any constipation using hinges.

The shaft should be placed at an angle of 30degrees, and mounted on a frame structure made of parts of 50x50 mm. The finished design should be embedded in the ground or mounted on the surface tightly. The shaft may be made of two steel rods of d = 50 mm.

The simplest manual mixer design

The design is ready to go. It remains only to fill in the tank all components, close the lid and using the handles to perform 10-15 rpm

To unload the finished solution from the tank, it is necessary to substitute any container under the barrel and through the open hatch upside down barrels throw zameshenny solution.

Option # 2 - production of electric mixer

Electric mixers are classified as more advanced models, they are driven by a motor.

Preparation of the basic elements

To make the mixer is necessary to prepare:

  • Metal reservoir;
  • The motor;
  • Drive shaft;
  • Metal corners or bars d = 50 mm blade;
  • Two bearings;
  • for frame elements.

Using the barrel with a capacity of 200 liters per load will be possible to receive up to 7-10 buckets ready solution, sufficient for one cycle of construction works.

Concrete Mixer, welded from sheet steel

For the production of concrete mixer, you can use ready-made barrels, or cook capacity of 1.5 mm sheet steel. However, for this it is necessary to possess certain skills lathes

To increase the mixability properties of the unit,the tank can be fitted with helical blades. Cook them over or they can be rods, placing them at an angle of 30 degrees, and giving them the shape of the internal contours of the tub.

For a mixer, you can usethe engine of any technology (eg washing machines). But selecting the drive motor is better to choose for this, which is capable of rotational speeds of 1500 rev / min and the rotational speed when this would not exceed 48 revolutions / min. These characteristics can be obtained without a high-quality concrete mix dry inclusions. For the main power module will also require additional gearbox and belt drive pulleys.

Building construction

drilled holes on two sides of the containerdrum shaft connection. Construction of the tank hatch occurs on the same principle as in the assembly manual mixer. By the bottom of the container is welded a ring gear, which serves part of the gearbox. Attached to the same and the smaller diameter gear.

To turn an ordinary tank inelectric mixer, necessary piece of pipe, which will subsequently be welded to the tank insert bearing with a larger diameter, and then connected to the motor shaft.

Scheme manufacture and assembly of the support structure

The supporting structure - the frame can be made of wooden boards or planks, metal channels, pipes or parts of 45x45 mm

To make a mobile support structure, it may be further equipped with wheels which are mounted on axle ends lathed made of valves d = 43 mm.

To facilitate the work with the device,the mixer is desirable to equip the rotary device. Collect it is quite simple. To do this by welding two metal pipes must be connected d = 60 mm and two stops bearing housings. To fix the frame bearing devices remain a welded plug and tipping the handle.

To fix the rotator in the workingposition should be in the front ring and the adjacent wall of the pipe to drill a vertical hole where the pin is inserted into a wire with a diameter of 8 mm.

Finally, I would like to show a couple of video examples. Here manufacturing option from the gas cylinder:

But this mixer can be done if the motor attached to a conventional barrel:
