Ribbon-style auger reduces mixing times

Jaylor also adding more sensors, control to TMR mixers

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Jaylor has launched a new patented ribbon-style auger for its horizontal mixers.

These new style of augers provide the benefits of reduced mix times by up to one-third and increased mix capacity of 10 to 20 per cent (measured by weight).

Early adopters of the new system also note the ability of this style of auger to maintain large flake integrity, the company says.

Jaylor has been known for its patented square cut auger in its vertical mixers. The new auger means the company is increasing manufacturing capacity and bringing the new design to its Quad Auger Horizontal Mixer.

Jaylor is also offering the OrbitEvo 6520 intelligent controller. This hydrostatic planetary drive system and smart controller ensure power and performance that deliver feed accurately and efficiently.

Similar in concept to a Continously Variable Transmission (CVT), the OrbitEvo controller automatically constantly varies the hydrostatic pump and motor for optimal load balancing. Continuous monitoring while mixing provides automatic load balancing and adjustments, even regulating engine rpm to coincide with pump flow and pressure, as well as motor flow and pressure. In addition, fine-tuned control of auger rpm during feed-out, combined with a gravity chute allows inexperienced operators to achieve single-pass feeding.

A five-button joystick activates all the functions and the OrbitEvo 6520 takes care of the rest, reducing training required for drivers.

It incorporates seven sensors, logging system temperatures, oil level, pressures and flow for effective preventive maintenance and safely disengages when the system goes over settable thresholds.

In the low torque phase of cleanout, the augers can be spun at more than 20 rpm, while the truck is close to idle. In addition to improved longevity, the proprietary OrbitEvo 6520 system, combined with ribbon augers, also shows results in fuel saving of up to 3.8 litres per hour, when compared to conventional horizontal mixers.
