The automatic planetary mortar mixer is programmable to perform cement and mortar mixing, gypsum and lime in accordance with international testing standards.

This automatic planetary mixer, programmable, for the automatic execution of mixing cycles according to the standards for strength tests of cements, mortars and similar or free configuration for research works.

The planetary mortar mixer covers the most demanding international standard for cement testing for cement and mortar samples preparation, gypsum, limes, additives, etc. and specifically: EN 196-1, EN 459-2, EN 1744, EN 1015-11, EN 13454-2, ASTM C 109, ASTM C305, BS 3892-1, BS 4551-1.

  • Electronic control module with 4.3” touch screen and IP66 protection, which is intuitive, safe, resistant and easy to use.
  • Precise digital communication between the control module and the frequency variator.
  • Great versatility, thanks to the possibility of setting fully customized mixing cycles.
  • Variable speed from the control module screen, to adapt to any standard or customer needs.
  • Optimized design to save space in the laboratory.
  • Innovative support and guidance system, for a robust and precise positioning of the bowl.
  • Planetary mixing movement, the paddle rotates on its own axis and driven in a planetary movement around the axis of the bowl, in opposite directions.
  • Automatic sand feeder.
  • Automatic or manual water dosing system, optionally available for mortar viscosity research tests.
  • Detection of the correct position of the bowl with sensors for proximity and position to ensure operator safety.
  • Nozzle for dust extraction system that allows the connection of an external vacuum.
  • Additive dispenser of liquid or solid.
  • Protection screen.
  • Emergency stop in compliance with compliance with EC marking Directives.

Technical specifications:

For pure cement paste according to ASTM C 305

Mixing cycles for free programming

Up to 5 freely configurable mixing programs

Available programming mixing steps

1. Low speed, during a specified time.
2. Low speed + sand feeding, with acoustic warning during the process.
3. High speed, during a specified time.
4. Cleaning time with countdown timer. The mixing stops and then the safety screen can be opened for the cleaning of the bowl. Acoustic beeps warning of close end of the selected cleaning time, so that the user can closes the safety screen and continues to the next step of the mixing cycle.
5. Pause time.
6. Unlimited stand-by time. During the “stand-by” time, the display indicates: “press ENTER KEY to continue”
7. Technical loop (usually used for checks and adjustments of the Technical Service). When finished a complete cycle, the technical loop links to a new one. The technical loop will repeat continuous cycles until the users press any key.
