Hello and some pix

Postby digger doug on Mon Dec 28, 2009 12:17 pm

Here is an old (still operating last I know of) Daffin
Down in Starbrick Pa.

The owner like's this option very much, but cannot get
a new one like it. I took the pictures, in anticipation
of making up some drawings.

He tell's me this works very good on bridge jobs, to pour over the
side (swing the auger to the extreme left) and then swivel the chute
over the side of the bridge, to where ever it is needed.

If the swivel chute is what you are interested in Cementech makes one, don't know if it is the same or not.

Uhm no... I was taking pix as he could not get one.

He told me, of all the builders, cementech replied they would be working on it, but
never got back to him. This was about 3 years ago, apparently
they finally did.

It's odd that cementech didn't show this on the website.

Please note that the rotation is by using an orbit motor and chain, not a cylinder.

Would you all like some more pix ? I have some more saved in my computer.

Hold on everybody.

Why do I want to contact anybody ?

Please re-read the initial post.

I am a designer, and I can re-design this to be producible
with proper toleranced shop drawings.

I am posting this here, as I sent these pix to Don a couple of
years ago, and thought some one might like to have a look see.

Now, who would like to remove their conveyor in under 15 minutes ?

Don 'splained to me some problems, I have some ideas.

I saw a Cementech unit with a swivel chute at World Of Concrete in about 2006 or 2007. On the one that they had the chute portion swiveled freely (independently of the auger swivel) and was moved manually just as a rear discharge barrel mixer would be. One advantage to having the chute swivel manually is that if your customers are used to working with a free swiveling chute there is a level of familiarity, I could not count the times I have seen a finisher try to push my auger (I did not get the swivel chute option as I pump 90 to 95% of my concrete). Another advantage would be in not having the added cost/maintenance of chains or rams or hydrolic lines and valves, etc. I do not know how many other Mfg. have come up with a similar swivel and I would imagine that someone with the right skills could design and build a system that would work well.
