How does the concrete batching plant work?

A concrete plant also known as a batch plant or batching plant is a device that combines various ingredients to form concreteSome of these inputs include sand water aggregate rocks gravel etc fly ash potash and cementThere are two types of a href"httpwwwmobilebatchplantcom"concrete batching plantsaReady mix plants A ready mix plant combines all ingredients except for water at the concrete plant This mixture is then discharged into a ready mix truck also known as a concrete transport truck Water is then added to the mix in the truck and mixed during transport to the job siteCentral mix plantsA central mix plant combines some or all of the above ingredients including water at a central location The final product is then transported to the job site Central mix plants differ from ready mix plants in that they offer the end user a much more consistent product since all the ingredient mixing is done in a central location and is computerassisted to ensure uniformity of productA concrete plant can have a variety of parts and accessories including but not limited to1 Mixers either tiltup or horizontal or in some cases both The center of the concrete batching plant is the mixer2 cement batchers3 aggregate batchers4 conveyors5 radial stackers6 aggregate bins7 cement bins8 heaters9 chillers10 cement silos11 batch plant controls12 and dust collectors to minimize environmental pollutionThere are three types of mixer1 Tilt A more sophisticated version of the machine is the tetradecagonal eggshaped mixer which does 3060 rpm For large scale projects this is employed using an Archimedes鈥檚crew that hoists the ingredients mixing them and then conveying them to the mixer At times the batching machine may be secured onto the truck that carries the raw materials and when they arrive at the site the plant equipment mixes the concrete onsite The equipment is composed of a tube pentagonal to octagonalshaped inside At times iron balls are thrown inside to assist in mixing2 Twin shaft mixerThe 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 cost3 Pan concrete mixerWorkingThe concrete batch plants can be categorized into 4 partsaggregate feedingpowder feeding fly ash cement and expanding agentwater andadmixture for mixing the materials conveyance and storageWhen the control system of mixer is connected to an electricity source the operation interface of the manmachine interaction will appear and system will begin to process initialization which includes the formula number concrete slump concrete grade and productivityEach silo and weighing hopper is tested according to weighing system Its control system will output the signal of the amount of material to prompt the operator to decide whether to start the control program or notThe belt conveyor is initiated to transmit the aggregate to the weighing hopper the valve of the fly ash and cement tank should be opened and the screw conveyor and motor initiated to transmit them into the weighing hopperThe control valve of the water sump and admixture sump needs to be opened to make water and admixture flow into the weighing hopperOnce the weight of all material types meets the needs of specific amounts the door of the weighing hopper is opened automaticallyThe materials will then be mixed by a concrete mixer Once the setting time is over the loading door of the concrete mixer opens and the concrete flows into a concrete mixer trucksDetails of HZS180 Concrete Batching Plantbr
