Mixer Spares

We’re market leader in this specialist field and have been for over 35 years. We know more about mixers in UK than anyone else and offer the widest range of components. The key to our success is that we really understand abrasion and have an in-depth knowledge of the mixing process. This is why we’re so good at solving wear problems.

Supporting mixers in the UK since 1977

Reduce mixer running costs and minimise downtime

Improve mixer safety and reduce risk

Enhance mixing performance and safeguard concrete quality

Mixer Wear Parts

Mixing concrete is a particularly abrasive process which places the highest demands on mixing tools such as blades and scrapers. We’ve spent decades designing mixer wear parts which combat abrasion and last longer, so you spend less time in the mixer and more time making concrete.

Cast Steel ~ the traditional standard High quality, Ni-hard steel Excellent value for money Ideal for certain aggregates and low wear mixers

Hawiflex® Polyurethane ~ the industry leader Special formulation outlasts other PU’s by up to 3 x Highly abrasion and impact resistant Light-weight and safe to handle - simple to clean & maintain Twinshaft blades too heavy? Read how Hawiflex® helps...

Mixer Wear Plates

We supply more floor & wall plates to more mixers than any other company. This vast experience combined with the widest range of hard-wearing wear plate options enables us to identify the most cost effective alternative for your raw materials and mix designs. We help reduce mixer running costs and minimise plant downtime by supplying plates which last longer and fit better.

Pan & Planetary mixer floor & walls We supply plates to suit virtually all concrete mixers High quality plates fit accurately for quick, safe installation Widest range of materials to suit all budgets & wear levels Excel300 grade steel ~ entry level, competitively priced Excel600 grade steel ~ through hard quenched plate ConSpare Extra ~ hardweld coated plate. Extremely tough Chill Cast tiles ~ optimum quality. Excel in high volume applications New BetaTile ~ Impact & abrasion resistant hardweld coated tiles

Twinshaft mixer liners & end plates Lining tiles, end plates & shaft sealing components Specially heat treated trough liners Spend less time maintaining these inaccessible mixers

longer wear plate life = less maintenance = less risk





Mixer Components

Mixers are at the heart of the concrete production process. Years of arduous operation takes its toll and accidents sometimes occur which cause major damage. In either case, non-wearing parts may need replacement to bring the mixer back into full working order. We stock thousands of components to optimise mixer performance.

Wide range of mixer components: • Mixer arms / legs • Mixing stars • Arm mountings

• Rotor components

• Seal kits

• Hydraulic kits

• Spray jets

• Clamps

• Rotor covers

• Skip hoist spares

Plant Components No other company stocks the range of batch plant components that we do. We are the supplier that the industry turns to when they need spare parts, particularly in breakdown situations. As an industry wide supplier we see the most common causes of poor plant performance time and again, and we’ve worked out how to solve them. We provide a unique range of best practice components which make plants perform better.
