TITLE
Fibre blowing system
ARTICLE
The safety team has devised a solution to the problems associated with the addition of polypropylene fibres to concrete and screed mixes.

A one-man system now transfers the fibres from the batch cabin into the mixer, consisting of a cone with a lid located in the batch control room. When the fan is switched on, the fibres are put into the cone and the lid is shut and sealed. The cone joins onto an electric fan blower located under the floor of the batch cabin, and the fibres are blown along a duct into the pan mixer.
