The concrete batching plant, known as concrete mixing plant, is a machine that can combine various things like sand, cement, water, etc. to produce concrete. These various ingredients are mixed in different ratios depending on the final model of the concrete which the company needs.

The batching plant is one of the most important equipment in the construction industry. The concrete plant has many important components which include the cement and aggregate batching, aggregate bins, conveyors, mixers, heaters, cement silos, control panels, and dust collectors. The efficiency of the batching plant is more important to get high quality and durable concrete. An aggregate batching plant contains aggregate bins, a weighting system, and a conveyor.

Let us check out how does a concrete batching plant works:

Raw materials are poured into large containers and they are delivered into a central mixer via a conveyor built. Before transporting materials to the mixer, they will be weighed to sustain consistency in output.

Concrete batching plants can be categorized into 4 major parts namely: powder feeding, aggregate feeding, storage, and conveyance. They are used to make quaking concrete and hard concrete suitable for bridge and road construction. When the control system of a mixer is directly connected to a source of electricity, system initialization will take place which includes concrete slump, productivity, formula number, and concrete grade. Each and every container is tested according to the weighing system.

Belt conveyor is then started with the aim of transmitting aggregate to the hopper. Cement tank and fly ash valve, on the other hand, should be opened in order to make the admixture flow into the hopper. The door of the hopper is automatically opened when the total weight of materials reaches a specific amount. When the time set is over, the door to the concrete mixer will open and concrete will flow into the mixer truck. The process should be done very carefully in order to avoid contamination of concrete.

Experts always suggest that proper planning should be done under export supervision before at concrete batching plant is ordered onto a manufacturer. Following factors should be kept in mind while designing a batching plant:

1. Land availability.

A distance of the plant from raw materials like aggregates, cement, sand, water, and chemicals.

2. The distance of the plant from a major construction site since the concrete has to be delivered eventually to those places.

3. Availability of trained personnel to run the plant efficiently.



Our company has various concrete batching plants for both stationary and mobile types also with different capacities. Our machines are designed with fully automatic operation systems to work 24 hours. read more about the machines in the concrete batching plant article.
