The Continuous Batching System - How It Works
(1) Raw materials are carried in separate compartments. Precise production specifications are accomplished at the job site as the concrete is being produced and can be changed almost instantly to accommodate a different design mix. The conveyor belt (2) carries sand and rock (side-by-side) through adjustable material gates (3) located at the rear of the conveyor hopper. Cement is metered onto the conveyor at a constant rate through a mechanically linked rotary airlock vane feeder (4). Mix design changes are easily made by raising and lowering the metering gates. Accuracy is assured because cement is always metered at a constant volume per foot of conveyor belt movement. Cement is the constant and sand and rock are adjusted proportionally to achieve a specific mix design. As the proportioned materials enter the mixing auger (5), then and only then, water is added. Thus, no wasted materials.
Our System Gives You Longer Working Time
Our Continuous Batching System eliminates the possibility of a 'Hot Load' arriving at your job site and removed the working time confinements often encountered when working with pre-mixed concrete, thereby giving you longer working time.
