The Inner Workings of a Batching Plant

A batching plant, also known as a concrete plant or batch plant, combines various ingredients to form concrete. Some of the materials used can include water, rocks, gravel, sand, lime, fly ash, potash and cement. Batching plants are generally designed to suit individual needs. The two primary types of batching plants are dry mix batching plants and wet mix batching plants. The former involves mixing all the dry materials first and then dispatching it into a transit mixer (mobile concrete mixer truck) where water is added. The latter involves homogeneously [...]
