Abstract:
(EN) An apparatus and method are disclosed for transporting and agitating a substance having solid and liquid constituents. The apparatus includes a mobile wheeled chassis (12) having a pressure vessel (22) mounted thereon. The vessel (22) has a floor (36) and at least one wall (32) with an inner surface defining a vessel interior space (28) for containing the substance. A plurality of supports (40, 42, 44, 46) are located within the interior space (28) and mounted to the inner surface. A plurality of motors (54, 56, 58, 60) each having a shaft (62, 64, 66, 68) are located and mounted to a respective support (40, 42, 44, 46). A plurality of agitator blades (88, 90, 92, 94) are each coupled to a respective shaft (62, 64, 66, 68) and rotated about a substantially vertical axis for directing the substance toward the floor (36).
(FR) Dispositif et procédé pour transporter et agiter un produit comportant des composants solides et liquides. Le dispositif comprend un châssis (12) mobile sur roues, sur lequel est monté une cuve (22) sous pression. La cuve (22) se compose d'une partie plancher (36) et d'au moins une paroi (32) dont la surface intérieure délimite un volume intérieur (28) destiné à contenir un produit. Ce volume (28) intérieur renferme une pluralité de supports (40, 42, 44, 46) fixés à la surface intérieure. Une pluralité de moteurs (54, 56, 58, 60) possédant chacun un arbre (62, 64, 66, 68) sont placés et fixés sur un support respectif (40, 42, 44, 46). Une pluralité de pales d'agitation (88, 90, 92, 94) sont chacune couplées à un arbre (62, 64, 66, 68) respectif et entraînées en rotation autour d'un axe sensiblement vertical pour pousser le produit en direction du plancher (36).
