The noise generated from a D50 mixer is very low, in the region of 65 to 70 dBA.
Yes but only when empty
A minimum water pressure of 2 bar and a flow rate of 800 lt/hour is required. Water storage tanks are possible , see our site requirement brochure for full details
Silos can run off either single phase or three phase mains, they can also run off a suitable generator, download our site requirements brochure for full details

1 tonne of mortar will lay approx 1,000 number bricks, this is around 16.5m2 of single skin masonry.
1 tonne of mortar will lay around 500 to 600 blocks depending on the thickness of the block.
We can produce a pumpable mix of most products, pumps are available for hire from specialist plant hire companies.
Hydration and strength development in mortar generally occurs at temperatures greater than 4°C. This means that when the temperature at the time of laying is less than 4°C, the characteristics of the mortar may be affected. Consequently, masonry construction should stop when the air temperature falls below 3°C, unless the mortar temperature can be maintained at a minimum of 4°C until it has hardened. This may mean working in heated enclosures. If work is suspended laying may be resumed when the air temperature rises to 1°C and is expected to continue rising to above 3°C over the bricklaying period. – see the mortar industry association data sheet for further details
