ABOUT SHOTCRETE

WHAT IS SHOTCRETE?

The shotcrete (gunite) is defined as the mechanized application of concretes and compositions with a cement and non-cement binder (e.g., refractories, linings) without formwork. Shotcrete is a gunned layer of concrete, which obtained as a result of shotcreting. The difference between shotcrete and plastering, which is also often produced by a mechanical method.

POSSIBILITIES OF SHOTCRETE

The process of shotcrete is known for more than a hundred years, and the areas and scope of its use in the world are continuously increasing. Initially, dry shotcrete was used to reinforce soils and repair reinforced concrete structures. Subsequently, with the expansion of the capabilities of shotcrete equipment, shotcrete has become a more flexible technology capable of solving the most ...

DRY-MIX SHOTCRETE MACHINE АС-1

DESCRIPTION OF THE MACHINE

The AC-1 series machines for dry shotcrete are designed for applying concrete and refractory concrete by the so-called dry shotcrete method. This machine operates using a pocket-type one-sided dosing drum. The machine is produced in two types of execution—with an electric engine and a pneumatic engine, with a productivity of 0.4–3.2 m3/h. Versatility in use allows adapting the AC-1 to the most types of shotcrete works.

FIELD OF APPLICATION

The AC-1 series shotcrete machines are used for repairing concrete, ground reinforcement in underground and overland development, strengthening engineering structures, in the construction of hydraulic structures and tanks, reinforcing arches tunnels and collectors, carrying out the readjustment of concrete structures. Another important field of application is a refractory materials spraying. Compactness and mobility make the AC-1 the ideal machine for repairing concrete structures and underground development.

ADVANTAGES OF THE АС-1 SHOTCRETE MACHINE

- ease of movement and transportation due to the low weight of the machine; 1 worker can easily move the AC-1

- smooth output adjustment (VARIO version)

- long-term operation life due to reliable European components

- ability to work in the “start-stop” mode

- a simple cleaning of the apparatus and a rare choking of hoses

- possible to transport mixtures to long distances and to hard-to-get-at places

- low operating costs and long-term operation life of wearing parts

 

In response to the need to improve mobility and reduce materials consumption of the shotcrete equipment of classical design, the AC-1 machines have been developed. Thanks to the use of only one compaction plate, the machines in this series have a 30% reduced wear compared to machines with through-type rotor. The simplified and lightweight design makes the AC-1 an effective solution in the repairing of concrete, roadway supports, and the application of refractories.

The AC-1 is the “Kalashnikov automatic rifle” in the shotcrete.

DRY-MIX SHOTCRETE MACHINE АС-2

DESCRIPTION OF THE MACHINE

The AC-2 pneumatic concrete spraying machine is designed for shotcreting and refractory concrete by the so-called dry method. This machine is based on the classical rotary principle of action with through-type dosing rotor. The machine is manufactured in two versions—with a output of 0.5-4 m3/h. Changing the drum allows to additionally change the performance. The dual air supply system perfectly copes with dense and heavy mixes. In order to apply the refractory and lining layers, machines of this type are used in metallurgy, chemical, glass, cement industries, as well as in other enterprises that use furnaces.

FIELD OF APPLICATION

The AC-2 shotcrete machine can be used for the applying refractory shotcrete mixes and lining materials, repairing concrete, ground reinforcement in underground and overland development, strengthening engineering structures, reinforcing arches tunnels and collectors, carrying out the readjustment of concrete structures, and applying waterproofing mixes. Equipment of this type can be used for the transport of bulk solids and sandblasting.

ADVANTAGES OF THE MACHINE

- works well with big aggregate mixes (for example, refractory shotcrete mixes)

- a massive design that allows to work under severe conditions

- long-term operation life of wearing parts due to central lubrication

- smooth output adjustment (VARIO version)

- a simple cleaning of the apparatus and a rare choking of hoses

- possible to transport mixtures to long distances and to hard-to-get-at places

- low operating costs and long-term operation life of wearing parts

 

 

The classic design of shotcrete machines with through-type dosing drum has proven itself over many years of operation as extremely reliable, resistant to severe environment.

АС-3 DRY AND WET SHOTCRETE MACHINE

DESCRIPTION OF THE MACHINE

The АС-3 shotcrete machine is designed for shotcreting and applying of refractory concretes in a dry or wet method. This unit operates using a through-type dosing drum. The concrete sprayer machine is produced in two versions – with a output of 2–7 m3/h and 2–6 m3/h. Due to the special design of the charging hopper and the dispensing rotor, the sprayer can also be used for wet shotcrete. The АС-3 shotcrete machine is productive and the most versatile in the range of the АС shotcrete machines, and it can be adapted to any kind of gunite work.

FIELD OF APPLICATION

The AC-3 shotcrete machine can be used for the construction of buildings and structures without formwork, including using 3D panels, building swimming pools, applying refractory shotcrete mixes, repairing concrete, ground reinforcement in underground and overland development, strengthening engineering structures, reinforcing arches tunnels and collectors, carrying out the readjustment of concrete structures, and applying waterproofing mixes. Equipment of this type can be used for the transport of bulk solids and sandblasting.

ADVANTAGES OF THE MACHINE

- versatility with use of dry and wet mixes

- possible to feed liquid additives in the nozzle, applying large layers in one pass

- works well with big aggregate mixes

- a massive design that allows to work under severe conditions

- long-term operation life of wearing parts due to central lubrication

- smooth output adjustment (VARIO version)

- low operating costs and long-term operation life of wearing parts

 

 

The ability to work with any type of mixes makes this shotcrete machine extremely flexible in use – from small repairs to laying large volumes of concrete in the formwork. The possibility of replacing dosing drums and spray nozzles, according to the mix type, allows the AC-3 to cope with any task.

АС-4 SHOTCRETE PLASTERING MACHINE

DESCRIPTION OF THE MACHINE

The AC-4 machine is designed for shotcreting and plastering with fine grained wet mixes with high flowability. This machine works with the application of the gerotor-type (screw) pair and ensures the most gentle movement of mortars, including materials that are significantly different in density and sensitive to mechanical action (refractories, polystyrene concrete, foam concrete, etc.). The shotcrete plastering machine has a output of 0.75–2.8 m3/h.

FIELD OF APPLICATION

The AC-4 can be used to mechanize the application of mortars up to 30 mm in one pass: the construction of buildings and structures without formwork, including using 3D panels, applying refractory shotcrete mixes, carrying out the readjustment of concrete structures, and applying waterproofing mixes. Replaceable nozzles and nozzle holders allow adapting the machine to the required type of work. The AC-4 series auger machines are non-alternative equipment for pumping slush and abrasive masses that are used in waterproofing and finish (plastering).

ADVANTAGES OF THE MACHINE

- high reliability and safety of work due to the simplicity of the design

- all machines are equipped with a mixer, which allows giving up additional equipment

- quick and high quality mixing of mixes (in versions with mixers)

- mobility, most machines easily pass into a standard doorway

- implementation of modifications based on the drive 220V makes it possible to use it without industrial connection of electricity

- a wide range of accessories for specific work

 

 

Mobility, simple design, and easy replacement of wearing parts make the AC-4 a “workhorse” for plastering, shotcreting, waterproofing, and building of thin-walled structures
