The drying of the facing concrete prevents the tamper shoes from adhering to the concrete and helps with the texture of the block surface. In this sense, the »Hotshoe™« FEATURE is an ideal demolding aid. The control compares the TARGET temperature with the ACTUAL value measured on the heating element and if necessary, reheats. The TARGET value to be set depends on the respective mold, the water ratio in the concrete mix and the ambient temperature. As a result, the water-cement content matched to the product can be used without limitation due to surface problems, since adhesion to the tamper shoes is prevented. Higher surface qualities and a refined finished surface appearance are achieved.
Facts & Advantages:
- Verifiably higher surface quality on the concrete block, fewer rejects
- The temperature range with the KOBRA control device can be controlled for customer-specific and individual product needs
- Prevents the adhesion of moist, fine facing concrete through controlled setting
- Shorter cycle times for products requiring intensive cleaning
