Portable Concrete Plant
Portable cement plant is a mobile facility where ready-mixed concrete is produced by mixing aggregates such as sand and gravel with cement and water in certain proportions.
Raw materials procured from mines and quarries must go through certain stages in order to become ready-to-use concrete. Mobile facilities where these stages are carried out are called portable cement plant or mobile concrete plant.
What is a Portable Cement Plant?
Ready-mixed concrete is the basic building material that is obtained by mixing homogeneously concrete aggregate, cement, water and in some cases additives at the certain proportions. It is primarily fluid, but solidifying and hardening over time. It is used in many sectors. Complex factories or facilities that combine the necessary materials to produce ready-mixed concrete are also called cement batching plants or ready-mixed concrete plants. Concrete plants are divided into 3 main groups as follows:
- Stationary Concrete Batching Plants
- Compact Concrete Batching Plants
- Mobile Concrete Batching Plants
Stationary Concrete Batching Plant
Stationary concrete batching plant is larger than mobile and compact concrete plants since remaining fixed in the project area. It has high capacity and includes cement silo, mixer, aggregate bunker and feeding systems.
Stationary concrete batching plant was built to meet the high performance production requirement. Stationary concrete batching plant is designed to produce high quality of concrete and work efficiently in accordance with the rules of work safety. It is able to produce for long periods and maintain their durability for many years.
Compact Concrete Batching Plants
It is a type of concrete batching plant that combines the high efficiency of stationary concrete batching plants and the portability of mobile concrete batching plants. It is designed in a compact structure that can be installed more easily at the project site where the production will start.
Compact concrete batching plant offers significant advantages especially in construction projects. It can be easily located very close to the construction site. It is the most preferred product by companies that want to increase their business volume or reduce operating expenses.
The mobile concrete batching plant is a practical machine since easy of use and ready for production within a few hours after being installed. They can be purchased with double shaft mixer or pan mixer if needs. It contains all the parts that should be in a concrete plant and can be used for different projects due to its portabilty.
