Test procedures and results are reported for mixer efficiency tests on a 5-ton paddle mixer and a 5-ton shaft-mounted drum mixer. The latter appears similar to the cylindrical mixer, but the cylindrical mixer turns on trunnions while the shaft-mounted drum turns on a shaft through the center of the mixer and also has a unique flight design.
