How Concrete is made

Try to imagine modern living without concrete. Sure, it might be a bit old school with all buildings made of wood and all, but concrete is essentially the foundation of the modern world. With it, weather-proof buildings wouldn’t have been possible, and we’d be scurrying around trying to fix structures and buildings during stormy weather, instead of expecting these structures to withstand the elements and protect us. Here are some basic facts about this amazing material. Continue reading

Ensuring a Good Buy on Your Concrete Batch Plant

When we talk about , construction of high-rise buildings, roads, and bridges, among others, there is no room for inferior materials and equipment. The safety of the people is involved, which shoddy work and poor output could compromise. When it comes to construction projects of such a magnitude, a dependable concrete batch plant is necessary.

Maintaining the Quality of Central Mixed Concrete

If the quality of the materials used are less than satisfactory, then a construction project is liable to fail sooner rather than later. As such, producers and distributors of central mixed concrete make it a point to produce and deliver products according to the highest industry standards.

Production

Aggregates and paste make up the two basic ingredients of a good concrete recipe. As with any manufactured good or product, the ingredients must be mixed using the right tools and methods. To this end, producers of central mixed concrete need to acquire a concrete batch plant that is in excellent condition. The automated controls ensure that all ingredients are properly measured and mixed. With durable, sealed drums and modern controls, the materials can be combined free of impurities and maintain their consistency.

Delivery

As the final product is transported to the construction site, its uniformity and workability should be protected. Improperly agitating the concrete during transport or prolonging delivery to the job site can only diminish the product’s quality. Likewise, using a poorly designed truck or carrying out deliveries when environmental conditions are not optimal may ruin the product completely. Given these factors, concrete suppliers would do well to invest in sturdy and functional truck mixers as well as plan delivery to the job site within specific ideal minutes or revolutions.
