Xypex Chemical Corporation is a world-class manufacturer of waterproofing, protection, and rehabilitating materials for concrete structures. In the international marketplace, Xypex’s unique technology is used in over fifty countries on all five continents.

Xypex Chemical’s “Waterproofing by Crystallization” technology is a non-toxic concrete treatment that causes a catalytic reaction. The resulting crystalline formation of dendritic fibers becomes an integral part of the concrete.

Team Mixing Technologies was commissioned by Xypex to design, build, and commission an automated production facility. The plant was to receive raw materials by bulk truck, bulk bags, and hand- added quantities.

TMT managed the project from concept to production. Seismic upgrades were required on existing foundations both outside and within Xypex’s building prior to installing equipment. They also worked very closely with Xypex personnel and sourced the purchased packaging equipment.

Two 100 ton silos, mixer platform, and all material handling equipment were designed and fabricated by TMT, including a unique automated drum filling machine.

The 60-formula control system operates the plant unattended except for at the four packaging areas. A Modicon PLC with touchscreen is used to meet Xypex’s stringent quality control and production requirements. The entire operation utilizes a large dust collection system for a dust-free environment.
