DCR’S Sand heaters are the economical choice for self-contained sand heaters. Featuring a rotary drum, feed hopper, slinger conveyor, sealed-in burner assembly and controls mounted on a portable 16-inch H-Beam frame.
DCR has the ready-mix supplier in mind allowing them full control over mix temperature to improve concrete mix quality reducing finishing time. Heated sand provides higher quality, winter-mix concrete offering more heating transfer than water with a much longer thermal retention time.
The DCR Sand heater provides a more consistent blend, eliminating lumps and improves plant flow enhancing concrete mixes. This also improves plant capacity, lowering maintenance and labor costs. Hot sand makes it easier to meet concrete specifications for the toughest jobs.
DRUMS & Drive System
A drum rolled of high-strength steel and special flight design provides peak performance for the ready mix supplier. The drum is driven by DCR’s patented rubber tire drive system which reduces horse power, maintenance, and won’t slip on frosty mornings. The drive system works like a 4 wheel drive pickup to give maximized traction.
A sealed-in burner with a 90-degree temp rise and direct drive blower with 12 oz of pressure uses less horsepower and retains more heat in the rotary drum. The burner control system strokes the burner from low fire to max fire. All sand heaters run on natural gas, or vapor propane with the option of fuel oil.
The feed bin is 12x7x6 feet(LxWxH) with a 60 degree side slope. A 4-inch grate mounted on top keeps frozen chunks from plugging the feed belt.
All breakers and starter including discharge conveyor (sized to customers conveyor) are Square D. Includes a variable frequency drive on the drum and feed hopper. All electrical is mounted in a cabinet on the main frame with stop/start buttons mounted to the cabinet’s exterior.
DCR has design, engineered, and patented the rubber tire drive system which reduces horse power, maintenance, and won’t slip even on frosty mornings. The system works like a 4-wheel drive pickup to give maximum traction. DCR’s sand heaters are the only sand heaters in the world that will have these rubber tire drive systems.
