Newly developed continuous M-Y mixer has number of mixing units connected in series. When using it in the horizontal way, it fully complies the 2 n mixing theory of kneading and lapping mechanism. When using it in the vertical way, mixing work can be done under gravity force only, with the new modified mechanism of inter-particle collision and impact. The vertical set-up of M-Y mixer is renamed as Energy Saving Gravity (ESG) mixer to represent its mixing characteristic under gravity force only.

This paper describes about this new mixing system and its practicability for concrete production work in dam project.
