A forced action mixer can be cleaned in ten simple steps:

Step 1: Ensure the discharge chute is free.

Step 2: Start the machine and add 1-2 bags of dried, plain aggregate, allowing the gravel to agitate the inside of the pan.

Step 3: Add white spirit or xylene to the dry aggregate with the mixer still in operation in order to help remove excess resin.

Step 4: Release the mixed aggregate into a suitable vessel such as a wheelbarrow or bucket and carefully dispose of the soiled aggregate.

Step 5: Take out the mixer head and paddles and clean separately.

Step 6: Brush out leftover gravel with a wire brush.

Step 7: Clean the pan using white spirit or xylene and a wire brush.

Step 8: If cured resin is persistent, a heat source such as a hot-air gun or a blowtorch can be used with a wallpaper scraper. Care must be taken not to apply direct heat to one area as this may cause non-metallic parts such as wiring insulation and plastic to melt.

Step 9: Replace the mixer head.

Step 10: Clean the outside of the mixer.
