Made from an advanced cast polymer concrete, the new AMAROC structures are corrosion-free, abrasion resistant and at least five times more resistant to mechanical impact than traditional steel structures. Moreover, the excellent vibration damping qualities of the concrete composite contributes to smoother, quieter and more efficient operation of the mixers. “The new design simplifies installation and requires virtually no maintenance, providing real benefits for the end user,” explains Majid Hadavi, National Accounts Manager for water and waste water solutions at KSB Pumps Inc. “Our clever combination of mixer and stand offers real advantages for operators of wastewater facilities”.

KSB Pumps Inc., based in Mississauga, ON, is a member of the KSB Group, one of the world’s largest manufacturers of pumps, valves and systems.
