Description

Reed Dry-Mix Shotcrete Machine

REED’s LOVA dry mix gun has been
using the same basic operating principle for almost 50 years. Perfect for various applications including mine support, tunnel linings, rockscaping and much more.
1. The dry mix is fed through a
hopper into the pockets of the rotary feed wheel.
2. The rotary feed wheel, driven
by a heavy-duty oil bath gear drive,
rotates the mix under the conveying air inlet and material outlet.
3. With the introduction of single source
compressed air, the mix is evacuated from
the feed wheel pockets and then travels
through the outlet.
4. The dry mix is then conveyed in suspension through the dry mix hose to the
shotcrete nozzle where water is introduced.
