Blastcrete Equipment transitions to Tier 4 Final


Blastcrete Equipment has completed its transition to Tier 4 Final-compliant products for the company’s full line of machines. 

This includes the RS180 mixer-pump and MX-10 mixer-pump. The new upgrades to Tier 4 Final compliant products feature the same user-friendly, low maintenance design, but allow contractors to stay ahead of changing emission standards.

“Our engineering team works to incorporate the latest technology, such as Tier 4 Final engines, to meet customers’ specifications and industry regulations,” said Tripp Farrell, president of Blastcrete Equipment.

“Engineering and customizations are two product areas that we will always be adapting to keep customers ahead of the curve.” 

The Tier 4 Final RS180 mixer-pump is an economical option for gypsum flooring underlayment, grouting, cellular concrete and some wet shotcrete applications.

Powered by a 55 hp Yanmar water-cooled diesel engine, the pump offers variable speed from 0 to 13.8 cubic metres per hour with long-distance and high-volume pumping capabilities. The adjustable pumping pressure adds durability and maximizes the longevity of wear components, extending the life of the machine.

Blastcrete’s MX-10 mixer-pump is designed for refractory wet shotcrete and pump cast applications in foundries, power generation, petrochemical, steel mills and cement manufacturing facilities. 

The closed-loop hydraulic circuit delivers improved speed and torque to quickly and effectively mix dense refractory materials in less than two minutes. The unit is powered by a Tier 4 Final 108 hp JCB water-cooled diesel engine.

Blastcrete Equipment has been manufacturing solutions for the refractory and shotcrete industries for more than 60 years. 

The company manufactures a complete product line consisting of concrete mixers, pumps and related products, the company serves the commercial and residential construction, ICF and SCIP building systems, refractory and underground markets.
