Three Types Of Concrete To Know About!

Cement is an important material in our lives, yet we don’t know much about it. What we do know is that its responsible for helping society build urban structures and support our way of life, making it better. It is used extensively in constructing buildings, parking garages, office buildings, roads, bridges, dams and also to support kerbs, drains and pipes. The cement is mixed with other ingredients including crushed stone, sand, rocks, gravel and water. The equipment that combines the different ingredients to create concrete is called a concrete plant. [...]

Using Concrete to Support Soil Stabilisation

Soil stabilisation involves pulverising, trimming, compacting and moisture conditioning weak soil by mixing various binders with it such as lime, cement and salt (sodium chloride). This improves its characteristics for construction projects with a more favourable moisture content, strength, density, shrink/swell characteristics, permeability and plasticity index. Soil stabilisation is mainly used to upgrade poor quality clay soils to prevent concrete from cracking as well as providing appropriate subgrade support for adequate concrete slab performance. Soil stabilisation of clay material increases hardness by up to ten times, helping to establish a [...]

Ordering Equipment for A Construction Site

Every construction site requires the right machinery to build and maintain a productive and safe working environment. Of course, every construction project has its own unique requirements depending on what is being built and how big the project is. However, there are certain machines that play a crucial role and tend to always be construction sites. We explore some of those below. Diggers From creating sublevels for residential and commercial buildings to establishing a solid foundation for any construction, excavation is a key process in any project no matter what [...]

Which Type of Concrete Mixer Is the Strongest?

Concrete is one of the most useful and versatile building materials available, with countless uses across different industries including construction and mining. However, to produce high quality concrete efficiently, you need the right kind of mixer. With so many different options available, it can be confusing figuring out which concrete mixer is ideal for your requirements. There are different considerations to make depending on the volume of concrete you need, the type of concrete you want to produce, whether you want to create batches or require a continuous mixing system [...]

Understanding Twin Shaft Mixers

Twin shaft mixers are ideal for industries that require large volumes of high-quality concrete. Using powerful twin shafts that counter rotate allows for fast mixing action, consistency and rapid discharge. It can handle mix designs with coarse aggregates up to six inches in diameter. Twin shaft mixers may be used to prepare everything from ready-mix and precast concrete to glass batch, sand-lime bricks, asphalt and more. Twin shaft mixers can come as batch mixers or as continuous mixers depending on how much concrete needs to be produced. How the Twin [...]

What Is a Planetary Mixer for Concrete?

The Sicoma planetary mixer is a fixed, heavy duty, general purpose mixer that provides world class mixing action. It’s ideal for manufacturing building products at a large volume while ensuring consistency and high quality. Using a unique mixing action, materials like resins, clay, reconstituted limestone and more can be blended to manufacture blocks, suspended concrete floors and other building products. The planetary mixer has one or two mixing stars that rotate around themselves as well as rotating around a central point, enabling each arm to cover every inch of the [...]

All about Continuous Mixers

There are a range of different industrial mixing technologies, applications and methods. Cement mixers vary in size, shapes, arrangements and modes of operation but will nearly always be a continuous mixer or batch mixer. Continuous mixing and batch mixing are two different ways of mixing concrete and other products, each suited to different circumstances. As the name suggests, continuous mixers allow you to continuously load, mix and discharge concrete until the required amount is achieved. Materials are loaded in manually using screw feeders. Continuous mixing is ideal for large scale [...]

The Difference Between Horizontal and Vertical Silos

Many manufacturing, mining, construction and civil engineering companies across Australia need silos or mixing plants to conduct their daily operations, including mixing and dispensing cement, lime, base and paste mixtures for a variety of applications. Silos can come in a range of types, including mobile or fixed and horizontal or vertical. Which one is best suited for your needs? It depends on factors like the environment the silo is operating in, volume needs, availability of cranes and personal preferences. If you’re looking for concrete batching equipment for sale, ensure you [...]
