Concrete batching plants divides into different types according to different classification criteria.The plants generally,divides into stationary concrete plants and mobile concrete plants. This is a basic classification that many manufacturers distinguish at the time of production.
Most of the stationary batching plants adopt the modular and splicing design, which mainly uses for large-scale commercial concrete manufacturers or related manufacturers of concrete components. It usually applies in large-scale engineering construction, owning the features of strong production capacity and stable anti-interference. The mobile batching plant is towed by a towing unit, which has good maneuverability and makes the production more flexible. It generally uses for various small and medium-sized temporary construction projects.
Commercial concrete plant and engineering concrete plant
According to the application, the concrete batching plant is divided into commercial concrete plant and engineering concrete plant. The commercial concrete plant is a concrete mixing station based on commercial purposes. It should be efficient and economical, meeting environmental protection standards. The engineering concrete plant is often for self-use. The buyer should have a consideration that whether it is in accordance with the engineering.
Single host batching plant and double host batching plant
According to the number of concrete mixers, the concrete batching plant divides into single host batching plant and double host batching plant. The model name of the double main mixing station is “Double HZS” series concrete batching plant. For example, Double HZS25 concrete batching plant means that this batching plant equips with two JS500 concrete mixer.
Independent weighing and cumulative weighing methods
According to the weighing method, it divides into independent weighing and cumulative weighing methods. On the one hand,independent weighing equips with a separate weighing unit for each material. After weighing each material, these materials will be mixed in the mixer. This weighing method has a high precision, but it has a complicated design and cost.
On the other hand, the accumulated weighing is to add all the aggregates into the unified hopper. It is prone to errors and unfavorable for the final production, and the more the number of batching bins. Besides, The more batching bins, the more likely the deviation will occur. So this method is not suitable for large projects. It, however, has a simple structural design and low cost.
Batching plants have also been designed for specific location and circumstances. They include;
Mobile concrete batching plant
The mobile concrete batching plant is a concrete mixing equipment. It is suitable for the projects that need frequent transitions, have short construction period and long construction line.
At the same time, the following systems are concentrated on a trailer unit, including the system of materials’ store, weigh, transport, stir, unloading and the automatic control system. Moreover, the mobile concrete plant not only has the function of concrete batching plant, but the advantages of convenient movement, flexible assembly and disassembly.
Stationary concrete batching plant
The stationary concrete batching plant is easy to install. It uses in projects with long construction periods and large demand for concrete. In addition, it applies to a variety of complex terrain structures.
Compared with mobile concrete plant, the stationary concrete batch plant is more evenly stirred; it has higher production efficiency. At the same time, the stationary concrete plant achieves good mixing effect on dry, plastic and various proportions of concrete. Besides, it can also be used as commercial concrete plants for the production of commercial concrete.
Tower concrete mixing plant
The tower concrete mixing plant is a new type of concrete plant. Compared to traditional concrete plant, the aggregates metering system used in it reduces four intermediate link, changing to vertical unloading metering. At the same time, this method saves a lot of measurement time and improves production efficiency. Compared with concrete plant of same model, the production efficiency of tower concrete mixing plant is one-third higher than that.
Containerized concrete batch plant
The containerized concrete batch plant is a type of mixing equipment. It consists of mixing system, control system, material storage system, weighing system and conveying system.
Compared with the traditional concrete plant, the containerized concrete batch plant does not need to set the legs and mounting brackets. In addition, containerized concrete batch plant has excellent environmental performance, convenient transportation and simple installation. At the same time, it is suitable for concrete production of various hydropower, highway, port, airport, bridge and other construction projects, as well as construction of commercial concrete plant.
