Both cement mixer and Concrete mixer are special vehicles for mixing construction materials, and they are different in function and material composition:
The cement mixer truck is mainly used to mix cement with other ingredients (such as stone powder, sand, etc.) to produce cement paste for construction use.
The Concrete mixer is used to mix raw materials such as cement, gravel, sand, water and other admixtures (such as additives) to produce concrete for construction.
Differences in material composition:
The main raw material for cement mixer trucks is cement. Cement is a bonding material that can form a hard cement paste by mixing it with other components in a reasonable proportion.
The main raw materials of Concrete mixer are cement, gravel, sand, water and other admixtures. Concrete is a structural material made by mixing coarse aggregates (such as stones), fine aggregates (such as sand), cement, water, and admixtures in a certain proportion, and has a certain strength and plasticity.
Differences in mixing methods:
Cement mixer trucks generally adopt a forced mixing method, which involves mechanical forced mixing through equipment such as mixing paddles.
The Concrete mixer can adopt the rotary or forced mixing mode. The rotary mixing mainly depends on the rotation of the mixing tank itself, while the forced mixing requires mechanical forced mixing through the mixing paddle and other equipment.
It should be noted that during the actual use of cement mixers and Concrete mixer, operators should understand and master the corresponding operating procedures and safety requirements to ensure the safety and reliability of the mixing process. At the same time, regularly inspect and maintain vehicles and mixing equipment to ensure their normal operation and extend their service life.
