Equipment

Akkerman Inc.

When it comes to mud/fluid mixing, what matters most is aggressive agitation, a homogeneous blend, capacity, and powerful pump flow.

Our Bentonite and Lubrication systems are designed to fully hydrate your mixtures in less time with the pumping capacities required to enhance distances. They’re used on various projects, including guided boring, microtunneling, tunneling operations, conventional auger boring, HDD, and any application involving high viscosity heavy fluid mixing.

Safety and reliability are at the forefront with each design with features like a shrouded agitator, no belts, step‐up access to the tank, a mud supply platform, an in‐line suction strainer, and tank. A simple control panel and an in‐shaft control pendant complete the package.

Features:
  • Pump water or water with mud for fluid mixing
  • Aggressive in‐tank agitator maintains a homogeneous mixture by continuous mixing, independent agitation or agitate and pump
  • Hydraulically‐driven, high pressure with relief valve
  • Pressure is adjusted to match tooling requirements
  • In‐shaft control pendant comes standard with each assembly and allows operators to vary flow and pressure as needed
  • Sized to provide enough supply for the duration of the shift
  • Easy connection to mud/fluid supply

Testimonials

Lithos Engineering

Lithos Engineering is focused on providing tunnel design and construction management for underground construction projects across the United States and has worked with many different tunnel contractors on projects of varying sizes and complexity. I am always happy
to see Akkerman equipment on our project sites and I know we can rely on Akkerman products for a high level of performance and reliability.

I had the pleasure of working with Akkerman on one of our projects for which they designed and constructed a project specific hard rock TBM for a curved water conveyance tunnel high in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. Akkerman not only provided great solutions and technical support for the project but was a pleasure to work with in a collaborative teaming environment that allowed us to not only reduce project risks but reduce construction costs and schedule. During that project, I visited the Akkerman production facility to inspect the TBM under construction; I was extremely impressed with the Akkerman management, staff, and systems for quality control. I look forward to a long future of working with Akkerman and their products on our tunneling projects.
