The working process of the concrete mixing station
Reading Guide:This article introduces the working process of concrete mixing station for our customers.If you need more information, contact with us, please.

    A concrete mixing station, also called a concrete batching plant, is a a set of equipment that Mixing processing various ingredients to form concrete.
    Some of these ingredients contain sand, cement, water, aggregate (gravel,rocks, etc.), mineral powder,and admixtures.

 concrete batching plant

    There are two types of concrete batching plants mainly:

    Ready mixing stations (A ready mixing station combines all ingredients except for water at  the concrete mixing station. This concrete mixture is then discharged into ready mixer trucks (also known as a concrete transport truck). Water is then added to the mixture in the truck and mixed during transport to the working sites)
    Central mixing station.(A central mixing station combines some or all of the ingredients  at a central location. The final product is then  transported to the working site. Central mixing stations is different from the ready mixing stations in that they offer the end user a much more consistent product,  since all the ingredients mixing is done in a central location and is  computer-assisted to ensure uniformity of product.)

    A concrete mixing station can have a variety of parts and accessories, including but not limited to:

1. Mixers, The center of the concrete batching plant is the mixer.
2. Cement batchers,
3. Aggregate batchers,
4. Screw conveyors,
5. Aggregate bins,
6. Hopper or belt conveyor,
7. Cement silo,
8. Batching plant controls system,

Concrete mixer machine




    The concrete concrete mixing plant equipment can be categorized into 3 parts:

    aggregate feeding,
    powder feeding (mineral powder, cement and addmixtures),
    water and admixture for mixing the materials, conveyance and storage.
    When the control system of mixer is connected to an electricity system, the operation interface of the man-handled interaction will appear and system will begin to process initialization which includes the formula number, concrete slump, concrete qulity and productivity.
    Each 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 tart the control program or not.
    The belt conveyor is initiated to transmit the aggregate to the weighing hopper; the valve of the powers and cement should be conveyed by the screw conveyor and motor initiated to transmit them into the weighing hopper;
    The control valve of the water sump and admixture sump needs to be opened to make water and admixture flow into the weighing hopper.
    Once the weight of all material types meets the needs of specific amounts,  the door of the weighing hopper is opened automatically.
    The 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 trucks.
    This process is conducted very carefully since concrete must not segregate and also because the concrete must be ready and transported  and then used before its preliminary setting time which is between 30-45 minutes.In some countries, this is carried out  by a mobile concrete batching machine.
