For the application the company developped a machine which weights and mixes the solid and fluid components on the spot.     

    The comments of Bolidt: “Remainders fortunately don’t occur anymore. Apart of that the machine applies directly after start up a useful mixture. That is thanks to the special characteristics of the PENKO controllers. Calculated settings are stored per formula and the instruments measure  rapidly with a high resolution. Out of this information an alarm is generated when the mixture even slightly deviates from the setpoint. Practical is we can easily adapt the speed of the Bolimixmache to the speed we apply the wear layer in”.
