Concrete batching plant

Concrete batching plant are widely used to produce various kinds of concrete, including quaking concrete and hard concrete, suitable for large or medium scale building works, road and bridge works, precast concrete plants and much more.

A mobile concrete batching plant includes multiple containers that separately transport all the elements necessary for concrete production, or any other mixture, at a specific job site. In this way, the operator can produce exactly what is required, where it is needed and in the quantity required through the use of an on- board computer.

Once production starts, various components enter the mixer in the required quantities and the finished product comes out to be transported through a concrete truck mixer. The mobile batching plant is easy to transport. It can be fixed- mounted on a truck, mounted on a truck with tipping box or mounted on an interchangeable cradle.

There are two types of concrete plants:
-Ready mix plants
-Central mix plants.

A concrete plant can have a variety of parts and accessories:
-Mixers (either tilt- up or horizontal or in some cases, both)
-Cement batchers,
-Aggregate batchers
-Radial Stackers
-Aggregate Bins
-Cement Bins
-Cement silos
-Batch plant controls
Dust Collectors (to minimize environmental pollution).

There are three types of mixer:
-Pan and
-Twin shaft mixer

The twin shaft mixer can ensure an even mixture of concrete and large output ,while the tilt mixer offers a consistent mix with much less maintenance labour and cost.
