Concrete plant

Concrete plants, also known as batch equipment or furnishing equipment or concrete mixing stations, are equipment that combine various components to form concrete. Some of these inputs include water, air, mixtures, sand, aggregate (rock, gravel, etc.), fly ash, silica fume, slag and cement. There are two main types of concrete plants: dry mixed plants and wet mixed plants, as well as plants containing mixed surfaces and mixed surfaces, while using common material storage points. Concrete plants can have a variety of parts and accessories, including: mixer (tilt roller or horizontal, or in some cases for two), cement paver, aggregate distributor, conveyor, radial stacker, Aggregate boxes, cement tanks, heaters, coolers, cement silos, batch control and dust collectors.

The main point of the concrete mixing plant is the mixer, the mixer has a variety of types, such as tilting drum, disc, planetary, single and double-shaft mixer. The biaxial mixer can ensure a mixture of the mixture by using a high-power motor, while the tilting mixer provides a consistent combination and maintains manpower and less cost.  In North America, the main central mixer type is tilted drum, while in Europe, the biaxial is more common. Pans or planetary mixers are more common in prefabricated plants. The aggregate tank has 2 to 6 compartments for the storage of various sand and aggregate (rock, gravel, etc.) dimensions, and cement silos are usually one or two compartments, but sometimes in a single silo 4 compartment. The conveyor is usually between 24-48 inches wide and the aggregate is transported from the hopper to the aggregate tank, as well as from the aggregate batch to the charge tank.

Typical plants are used to prepare for mixing, civil infrastructure and prefabricated applications.


Dry-mixed concrete plants, also known as transporting mixed plants, weigh sand, gravel and cement through digital or manual scales. All ingredients are then discharged into the chute of the truck. At the same time, the water is weighed or volumetric and discharged into the mixer truck through the same charging chute. And then mix these ingredients at least 70 to 100 revolutions during delivery to the site.

The mixed concrete mixing station mixes some or all of the above ingredients (including water) in a concrete mixer at a central location, mixing the concrete at one point, and then simply stirring the setting against the road to the site (using a processor or preparation Mixed truck) or transported to the scene of an open dump truck. The dry mix is different from the wet mixed plant because the wet mixture contains a central mixer and is dried, which can provide a more consistent mixture in a shorter time (typically 5 minutes or less). The dry mix plant usually sees more damage to the standard deviation of the strength and load changes, because the mixing time, truck blades and drum conditions, traffic conditions and so inconsistent. Using a central mixing device, all loads will see the same mixing action when the initial mass is controlled when discharged from the central mixer. Some plants combine dry and wet characteristics to increase production or seasonal. le A mobile mass production workshop can be built on large sites. 

Both the wet mix plant and the dry mix plant can use a batch computer for computer assistance. Different types of concrete batch plant types can be used for a variety of applications.

Batch plants can be portable, stationary, or semi-portable. Certain batch plant designs may be considered mobile, but not necessarily easy to set up and tear down.

The popular expertise in the ease of starting and teardown and the presence of portable features such as axles, brakes, and lights. Mobile batching plants are typically a single unit, made up of a cement silo, an aggregate bin, an aggregate conveyor and the a concrete batchc can not be carried out for a single plant. to reduce transportation costs

The mobile batch plant, also known as a portable concrete plant is a productive productive, reliable and cost effective piece of equipment to produce batches of concrete. It allows the user to batch concrete at most any location then move to another location and batch concrete. Portable plants are the best choice for temporary site projects or even stationary locations where the equipment height is a factor or the required production rate is lower.
