Ultraspan’s hollowcore extruders create a high-quality, dense slab with an exceptionally dry concrete mix. As a result, you get a hollowcore slab that cures quickly within six hours and requires less cement, which means more profit and greater productivity.EXT-400 Extruder – Optimizing Performance:
- Zero slump concrete with optimum water/cement ratio reduces curing time to as little as six hours with controlled curing methods.
- Increased profits due to highly-efficient, trouble-free production, reduced maintenance costs and decreased concrete consumption.
- High-quality slabs are dimensionally accurate, with a superior finish, optimum density and excellent bond to strand.
- Low noise extrusion (less than 85 dB) with Ultraspan’s Whisper Technology.
- Extrudes concrete at a rate of up to maximum 2.3 meters (90 inches) per minute; adaptable to suit your concrete mixing and delivery system’s speed and capacity.
- Longer spans with higher capacity require fewer steel strands which reduce manufacturing costs even more.
- Long-term technical support with innovative design and engineering expertise.
- Optional accessories allow for project diversification.
Designed for long life and optimum compaction of the hollowcore slab, the auger is the key to Ultraspan’s extrusion technology.
High frequency vibrators attached to the bearing housing ensure optimal compaction in the cross section of the hollowcore slab.
The plate vibrates above the augers at a high frequency, which aids in compaction. Without the vibration plate, the extruder would be unable to achieve high compaction and the concrete mix would require more water, which would extend the curing time.
Motors and Chain Drive
Two motors – 10 or 15 HP – drive the extruder. High torque transfers to the augers through a heavy duty chain drive, which results in minimum maintenance.
Patented vibration system
Produces a high-quality slab with an optimal water/cement ratio. Using up to 25 percent less cement than competing technologies means more financial returns on your investment.
Smart-Start Technology and Operator Online Optimizer
The technology offers trouble-free, lights-out operation to maximize financial returns.
Consists of one power unit and various HC size option cassettes. Fast & easy cassette changeover in only minutes.
Ultraspan’s hollowcore extruder technology uses a concrete mix that produces a high-quality slab with an optimal water/cement ratio. As a result, the hollowcore slab cures in as little as six hours. Using up to 25 percent less cement than competing technologies means more money in your pocket.Durable, efficient and easy to maintain
Ultraspan’s machines are designed to be durable, efficient and easy to maintain. Our hollowcore extruders have less downtime and operate at a low cost.Longer Spans
Ultraspan’s hollowcore extruder technology utilizes a section profile with optimal strength and weight properties, allowing for longer spans. By using longer spans architects can design buildings with up to 20% cost savings over other technologies.
Low maintenance costs are critical in today’s economy and with Ultraspan’s patented vibration system, the EXT-400Si delivers results with fewer parts in contact with concrete than any other industry extruders.
The EXT-400Si has approximately 80 percent fewer moving parts than its competitors’ sheer compaction mechanics. Streamlined for ease of maintenance, the EXT-400Si is completely free of grease lines, which result in lower operating costs.Motion Drives Cost
The more moving parts that are in friction with the concrete the more the equipment will break down, and the more costs will rise. Among active producers using Ultraspan’s 400 Series, maintenance costs factor in at a few cents per square foot.
Adjustable vibration frequency feature allows for optimal compaction, eliminating losses due to waste associated with strand slippage. The EXT-400Si’s performance is enhanced by quality formulation in a harmonized manner for high-quality, high-performance demands.Longer Asset Life
The EXT-400Si is designed to be more compact and lighter. With fewer moving parts, the resulting friction reduction means less wear which ultimately extends the life of the equipment.
Coupled with the performance metrics gathered from 400 Series installations, Ultraspan offers service agreements to make the maintenance expenditure highly manageable and predictably low.
