The Importance of Batching Equipment

If you work in the construction industry, it’s likely that you understand how important batching equipment is. Concrete plays a crucial role in any construction project, and the quality of that concrete determines the quality of any structure made from it. In order to make high quality concrete, you need equipment that can precisely combine ingredients like gravel, cement, water and other additives. Batching Systems The technology that goes into modern batching systems is intricate and constantly evolving. A batching plant has many components to it including a silo, cement [...]

How Should I Store Powdered Materials in Bulk?

From bags and pellets to large vertical silos, there are multiple options when it comes to storing your powdered materials in bulk. However, when it comes to reducing costs, keeping the powdered materials safe and streamlining operations, silos are the best option for bulk storage. Off-the-shelf solutions are rarely appropriate for large scale storage as each situation warrants different design approaches. Suppliers like Batchcrete can custom design your silo to suit your specific needs. This includes your volume requirements, space restrictions at the site, climate, availability of cranes and personal [...]

The Inner Workings of a Batching Plant

A batching plant, also known as a concrete plant or batch plant, combines various ingredients to form concrete. Some of the materials used can include water, rocks, gravel, sand, lime, fly ash, potash and cement. Batching plants are generally designed to suit individual needs. The two primary types of batching plants are dry mix batching plants and wet mix batching plants. The former involves mixing all the dry materials first and then dispatching it into a transit mixer (mobile concrete mixer truck) where water is added. The latter involves homogeneously [...]

Reduce air void cement clustering with the right batching plant

Cement clustering is a problem that can seriously hamper construction and building efforts, and it’s often difficult to pinpoint exactly what’s causing the problem until it’s too late. A common issue is too much air in the concrete mix, which is usually only be detected a minimum of a month after the mix has been laid and put to use, by which time the project will have already commenced. By this point, the resultant poor compression strength will have started to cause problems, and little can be done to remedy [...]
