Helix Dosing Machines make it easy to introduce the Twisted Steel Micro Rebar (TSMR) into any concrete mix.
Helix Dosing Machines
There are different types of Helix Dosing Machines that cater for any size project:
- Small Scale Helix Dosing Machines
- Medium Scale Helix Dosing Machines
- Large Scale Helix Dosing Machines
Safely Dosing Helix Micro-Rebar
Helix and its Agents work with ready mix batch plant managers to implement the dosing of Helix Micro-Rebar into their agitator trucks by minimising the impact on their daily operations. Helix Agents train and certify ready mix batch plant operators to dose Helix Micro-Rebar whilst adhering to all site specific safety and OH&S requirements. Helix provides the relevant Material Safety Data Sheets, Job Safety Analysis Forms and Risk Assessment Matrices to comply with all State and Regulatory Body OH&S requirements. Contact your local Agent to obtain a copy of the Helix Micro-Rebar MSDS or download it from our Technical Page.
Small Scale Helix Dosing Machines
Gob Hopper Helix Dosing Machines have been developed for small-scale dosing at ready-mix plants that require uniform distribution of the Helix TSMR through their mixes from time-to-time. Versitile and easy to maneuvre, the Gob Hopper can be set up in no time at all to dose a few loads. Its robust design, incorporating steel that have been cut from one piece, and minimum welds, ensure a easy-to-use dosing system that can absorb the knocks any ready-mix plant can throw at it.
Medium Scale Helix Dosing Machines
Vibratory Feeder Helix Dosing Machines are designed to allow for the ease of dosing of Helix TSMR for medium sized projects:
- onto a conveyer belt that feeds aggregate into a concrete agitator truck, or
- directly into the back of the truck from a bag stand (see below video).
The use of the Vibratory Feeder is to ensure that the Micro-Rebar is evenly distributed throughout the mix and no balling occurs.
The Vibratory Feeder measures 1.4m high x 0.8m wide x 1.7m long and can be lifted by two or three men. However, it is best lifted by a forklift and has been designed to be manouvered this way.
Helix Steel Australasia assesses each method of delivery with the individual client to ensure smooth delivery and uninterrupted supply.
Blower Feeder designed and built by Concrete Reinforcement Pty Ltd and Supersteel Tasmania. Used for dosing Helix Micro-Rebar into concrete agitator trucks, either at the batch plant or on the pour site. These machines and variants of, are available from Devonport to be shipped all over AUSTRALIA. For pricing and availability call Geoff Hubbard on +61 410 421 415 or Daniel Murphy on +61 417 291 052.
Large Scale Helix Dosing Machines
Incite Automated Fibre Dosing Systems
The Incite Automated Fibre Dosing System is a large scale method for introducing Helix TSMR to concrete. This system is typically suited to ready-mix batch plants where large volumes of Micro-Rebar is dosed on a daily basis, often in the order of 100-300m3. The system operates on negative load cells which precisely measures the amount of Micro-Rebar that is dosed into every truck-load. The rotating, vibrating doser, which can handle around 1 Tonne Micro-Rebar at a time, can feed onto conveyor belts or directly into the back of agitator trucks. Because the system is fully automated, accurate records can be kept and made available for Quality Management purposes.
