COMPUTERIZED CONCRETE BATCHING

A ready mix concrete plant, also known as a concrete batching plant, is a machine or equipment that combines various types of materials such as sand, gravel, and aggregates to form concrete. The ratio of different amounts of materials and additives will depend on the desired concrete type that the customer is requesting for their project. The concrete plant has many different components which include the cement and aggregate batchers, aggregate bins, conveyors, mixers, heaters, cement silos, control panels and dust collectors. The efficiency of the concrete batching plant allows for high quality and durable concrete.

Today, modern concrete batch plants have computer aided control and technology to assist in fast and accurate measurement of input materials or ingredients. With concrete performance so dependent on accurate measurement, systems now often use digital scales for weighing materials and aggregates, and moisture probes to measure water content as it enters the aggregate batcher to automatically compensate for the mix design water to cement ratio target.

Advantages of concrete batching plants:

1.       Improves the quality and performance of the concrete

2.       Improves the speed of construction with less errors

3.       Reduce material waste and save on overall costs

4.       Protect and improve environment – less pollution and waste
