Retrofitting concrete mixing plants

From old to new

We have many years of in-depth experience retrofitting concrete mixing plants. Mixing plant technology can be modernized at a reasonable cost. In addition to modernization, the output of the plant can also be significantly improved. The competitiveness of a plant can be dramatically increased by installing a more powerful mixer, modifying the weighing and metering equipment and replacing the control system.

Thanks to the compact design of the various BHS mixer models, a good solution is always possible, even when space is at a premium. For example, a pan mixer can usually be easily replaced with a much more efficient BHS DKX twin-shaft batch mixer.

We not only plan and manufacture the full scope of supply designed to meet your special needs, we also offer on-site assembly services, including commissioning by our proven and experienced team of experts.

We will gladly make you an offer. You can usually trade in your BHS twin-shaft batch mixer, even if it is already 25 years of age or older.

Twin-shaft batch mixer used for major project

At present, a Muslim faith community is having the “Mosquée de l’Algérie”, worth approx. 1.1 billion Euros, constructed in the Algerian capital city. The prayer room of the mosque is a huge cube which will accommodate up to 35,000 people. The production of a total of 618 octagonal spun concrete columns used for the monumental building was not a common project even for the manufacturer Europoles from Neumarkt/Germany. For this large project Europoles needed a new twin-shaft batch mixer of the DKX series of BHS-Sonthofen in order to be in the position to produce the required up to 20 m³ of concrete per hour.
