Agitation tanks are used to provide a storage reservoir for mixed batches of grout from the high speed high shear mixer.
Three main functions:
I) Releases any air bubbles trapped during the mixing process.
II) The agitation of the specially shaped paddles keep the mix in suspension prior to pumping.
III) The tank acts as a storage reservoir for mixed batches allowing a continuous supply to be maintained for the pump.
Powered by either air, electric or hydraulic motors, the units are of robust design. A grout inlet pipe to connect to the mixer discharge is provided and mixed grout is passed through a screening basket to filter any large objects which could damage pumping equipment.
