Compared with the belt batch plant, the stationary concrete batch plant equipped with a skip batch plant is firstly different due to the lack of a long inclined conveyor, which can greatly save the floor space of the concrete batching plant. This design allows the use of concrete factories in small buildings and production sites that are constantly lacking in work space.
In addition to the difference in occupied space, the skip-hopper concrete batching plant consumes less energy during work, which greatly affects the final cost of the final product. All equipment of the skip hopper concrete plant is reasonably compactly placed in a small area. Reasonable design and ease of installation and operation have made the skip hopper concrete plant widely recognized and become one of the modern standards in the field of stationary concrete production facilities.
The hopper used to supply inert materials has a special design to ensure the high reliability and operational safety of the entire equipment group, especially the feeding system. In the manufacture of the hopper, special double-stranded spiral cables and profiled steel with high technical parameters are used.
The only drawback of this design can be considered low feed rate. Generally, skip-hopper concrete plants for medium-sized plants, where the output is not as important as the accuracy, reliability and durability of the structural units used for concrete production.
