If preblended dry mortar mix is readily available and affordable in your area, new continuous mortar mixers may simplify and improve your mortar mixing operations. At the push of a button, a feeder auger draws the premix from the hopper into a mixing chamber. In the cylindrical mixing chamber, rotating mixing blades blend the premix with water, which is automatically injected into the chamber. The operator easily controls the ratio of water to premix. The mixer manufacturers claim using dry premix provides contractors many benefits: limited handling of materials; consistent premix proportions; ease of cleanup; and mobility.
