How to choose a concrete batching plant
First of all, to perform specific tasks, it is required to select the appropriate performance, as well as to estimate the size of the site allocated for the placement of equipment.
It is necessary to take into account the required strength characteristics and type of concrete, as well as the quality and availability of resources and components that are necessary for the operation of the future unit: binding ingredients, aggregates, additives, and also study the possibilities of supplying electricity, heat, water, and steam. Concrete plants are most commonly classified as the mobile concrete batching plant, and stationary concrete batching plant. Mobile devices differ in that they do not require a special foundation: they are designed for quick disassembly and assembly, the speed of which can vary from three days to a week. If a plant is purchased for a specific project and after completion of work it needs to be moved to a new site, dismantling and transportation should not cause difficulties.
Mobile Concrete Batching Plant Advantage
The advantages of a mobile plant include the ability to quickly obtain a fresh mixture of the required composition since the preparation of concrete takes place directly at the construction site. This eliminates the change in the properties of the mixture that occurs during long-distance transport. In addition, the productivity of such mobile batch plants is more dependent on the quality of the aggregates, and due to the design features, the operating cycle is usually higher than that of stationary plants. Mobile batching plants are easy to disassemble and assemble, no welding is required. This allows the equipment to be transferred to another facility in a short time. Stationary batching plants are not designed to be moved from one construction site to another and are much more powerful.
