Ocmix SF planetary concrete mixer produces high quality concrete at high
speed with outstanding reliability; its body is wider than most,
ensuring that its multi-star planetary mixing action gives the fastest
and most complete mixing of full size batches with no dead zones.
Its motor is more powerful than most too, making easy work of
high-density mixes. Large, fully sealing discharge doors and
scooped paddles discharge even SCC concrete with ease. Low sidewalls
and wide opening access covers (removed at right) make cleaning and
maintenance easy and safe.
Shipping and installation is made easy by removable
sections, as shown here.
In the planetary (or countercurrent)
design, one to three mixing stars (depending on size) rotate
individually while also rotating around a central point, allowing each
arm to cover the whole mixer floor in a number of revolutions.
This powerful mixing action is both fast and thorough, resulting in a
mixing time, after water is added, of 30 seconds or less for most types
of concrete. The result is more concrete per hour for the same
size plant, as well as better consistency and greater strength or, on
the other hand, a saving on cement that can pay for the mixer in a short
time. The planetary design is the best choice for dry precast
concrete, coloured mixes and for smaller batches of SCC and wet-cast due
to its intense, compulsory mixing action and complete cleanout.
Ocmix mixers are made in Italy by
Ocmer Grandi Impianti.
SF's large horizontally arranged gearbox combines speed
reduction and planetary action in one rugged, reliable unit,
making service far easier than with double gearbox models.
The motor couples to the gearbox through a hydraulic clutch on 1
cu.m. and larger models,
removing danger to the gears when shock loads are encountered
and allowing repeated starting with a full load.
If the gearbox ever has to be removed, its wide circular
mounting flange allows it to be lifted straight out. Ocmix gearboxes are
guaranteed for 5 years / 10,000 hours.
3-bladed mixing stars and
scraper assemblies are fabricated rather than cast, for extra
strength. They are stronger than most and flex or even bend if they encounter an obstruction,
rather than breaking, reducing the risk of a "train wreck".
BODY, DISCHARGE DOORS Ocmix SF's body breaks down
for shipping and also makes for easy erection. The body
separates at the discharge doors. Up to four doors can be
fitted; each door is rubber sealed for full watertight
operation and is hydraulically operated for precise, non-jamming operation.
Paddles are of
certified HB600 ni-hard cast iron for long life. Their scooped design
allows all types of mix to be mixed thoroughly and discharged with ease. Other
paddle designs are available for special applications.
The Ocmix SF mixer's powerful
action saves 10 to 20% on cement compared with pan and drum
mixers. The payback time can be as short as one year.
And the pan, being wider than most, mixes more thoroughly.
SKIP HOIST OPTION
The optional skip hoist bolts
onto the mixer during installation, making erection quick and
easy. Ocmer skips use a double balanced rope system for
An optional air bag
collects dusty air displaced during discharge of aggregates into
the mixer, allowing a small dust collector to maintain a
dust-free environment inside the plant.
Water and admixture inlets are standard, making
installation and startup fast and trouble free.
INTEGRATED CEMENT AND WATER
Cement and water scales can be integrated into the mixer cover,
making installation fast, easy and risk-free as well as ensuring the fastest mixing cycles.
Cement scale is at left and water scale at right, behind the
optional weighed admix containers. Optional skip hoist can be seen
behind the piggyback assembly.
All Ocmer plant
accessories are heavy gauge hot galvanized steel and scales are
commercially available butterfly valves for reliable discharge.
Solid performance, year after year.
MIXER WEAR LINER
The standard liner is
mm wear resistant Hardox 500 steel; tough but not
brittle, for floor plates and Hardox
400 for walls. Other lining materials, including Hardox
600 and Chromium Carbide cladded steel, are available on special
order. Optional urethane covers on mixing arms greatly
prolong their life.
HYDRAULIC AND GREASING SYSTEMS
Discharge doors are hydraulically operated,
giving powerful non-jamming action and precise positioning.
If power is lost, the manual actuator can be used to open the
For maintenance-free operation, the Ocmix SF
planetary mixer has automatic lubrication of the main bearings, giving you peace

TheHigh Pressure Washout option includes two
rotating jet assemblies that force powerful jets of water in every
direction, cleaning every surface thoroughly. A high-power manual gun
is supplied for hand cleanup of the remaining difficult spots.
Mixing cycle and mixer charging sequence:
we recommend charging the dry ingredients and pre-mixing before water is
added. This has been proven to improve coating of aggregates and
give faster overall mixing cycle times.
