What Are The Main Systems Of Concrete Batching Plant?

systems of concrete batching plants

Mixing System

Our mobile, stationary, central mix or ready mixed plants adopt a compulsory concrete mixer, which has good mixing performance and strong adaptability for mixing ordinary concrete and special concrete. In addition, a compulsory concrete mixer ensures the good quality of concrete in the concrete batching and mixing plant. You can learn about how concrete batching plant works. So you can choose a concrete drum mixer, planetary concrete mixer according to the demand of your project.

Storing System

In general, aggregates are stored in open-air places. The powder is stored in a closed silo. Admixture is stored in steel structural containers. Cement is stored in a cement silo. Our cement silo is equipped with a digital display, which can provide an accurate indication of the cement remains in the silo. In addition, the capacity of our cement silo is usually in a range from 20 to 200 tons, so it can be customized by our users in line with their different needs.

Weighing System

The weighing system is a key component that affects the quality and the cost of concrete. You need to know this part if you want to understand how does the concrete batching plant work. It is divided into three parts: aggregate weighing, powder weighing, and liquid weighing. Aggregates mainly include large stones, small stones, sand; liquid containing water, and liquid admixture; the powder is divided into cement, fly ash, and slag. All the weighing are operated at the same time and controlled by the computer. Users can input the ratio to the computer according to their different requirements.

Batching System

Our concrete batching machine can mix three to six kinds of aggregates, such as sand, rocks, gravel, potash, fly ash, and cement. I have to say, our aggregate batching machine has high work efficiency. There are two warehouses, three warehouses, and four warehouses available.

Conveying System

The conveying system consists of three parts. Aggregate is conveying by hopper and belt. The hopper conveying has the advantages of small transportation area and low cost. The belt conveying has the advantages of a small footprint and low cost. Belt conveying has the advantages of high efficiency and long transmission distance. Water and liquid admixtures are transported by the pump. Concrete is conveying by a screw conveyor from the cement silo to the concrete mixer.

Control System

The whole control room is big and bright, which is equipped with air conditioning. Our concrete batching plant for sale is controlled by a microcomputer, which is really convenient to operate and maintains for users. In the absence of automatic control, the manual operating system can still control the whole concrete mix plant.

Dust Removal System

The dust removal system of the on site concrete batching plant is composed of a dust collector and dust removal pipe. Our dust removing device of On-Site Conrete Batching Plants can purify the air to realize civilized concrete construction, which is really good.

How Does A Concrete Batching Plant Work?

How a concrete batching plant works. There are four steps in the whole concrete production process: feeding, batching, mixing, and discharging.

Feeding

Firstly, users need to use the wheel loader to transport all kinds of aggregate to the concrete batching machine. Such as pebble, sand, and small-size stone.

Batching

Secondly, there are two types of batching: aggregate batching and powder batching. Aggregate batching will be conducted in the aggregate batching machine, and powder batching is mainly means the fly ash and cement are stored in a cement silo. And these two powders will enter the twin-shaft concrete mixer through a screw conveyor.
By the way, According to the types of aggregate, you can choose the type of aggregate batching machine. AIMIX usually provides users with a three-bin batching machine or a four-bin batching machine.

Mixing

Thirdly, it is the most important process: mixing. When all of the raw materials enter the mixer machine, open the switch, mixing shaft will begin to stir the materials.

Discharging

Finally, when the materials are mixed at the stipulated time, the finished concrete mixture will be discharged from the discharge outlet. And there will be a concrete transit mixer to transport the fresh concrete to the construction site.

Here the whole concrete production process is finished.

How To Operate The Concrete Batching Plant?

Prepare

Conduct a pre-operation inspection, ensure availability of materials and safety equipment.

Start Up

Power on the plant, initialize control system, and prime batching system.

Load

Fill aggregate bins, load cement silos, and add admixtures as needed.

Control

How Much Is A Concrete Batching Plant?

AJ-25-AJ-50$ 33000 – $ 48000
AJ-60-AJ-180$ 78000 – $ 210000
AJY-25-AJY-90$ 38000 – $120000

In terms of types, different types of concrete batching plants have different prices. The higher the configuration, the higher the price. Because in a concrete mixing plant, many components are uncertain. For example, the customer can request a three-bin batching machine or a four-bin batching machine, and the three-bin batching machine is cheaper than the four-bin batching machine.

For another example, the number of cement silos that a customer can configure for a mixing plant is uncertain. Moreover, the types of cement silos are also different. We can provide welded type cement silo, bolted type cement silo, and horizontal cement silo. Of course, their production costs are different, and transportation costs are also different.

What’s more, there are many options regarding the mixing engine. Usually, we use twin-shaft concrete mixers, but some customers have special requirements for the quality of concrete, and they can also be equipped with a planetary concrete mixer, Sicoma concrete mixer, or pan concrete mixer. All of them need to consider your projects’ requirement.

How Much Does A Concrete Batching Plant Cost?

What is the cost of setting up a concrete batching plant? The cost of a concrete batching plant can vary significantly depending on several factors, including its capacity, configuration, features, and manufacturer. This will help you know how to make a concrete batching plant.

Capacity

Larger plants with higher production capacities generally have higher upfront costs compared to smaller plants.

Configuration

Mobile or portable batching plants tend to be less expensive than stationary concrete plants due to their simpler design and lower installation costs.

Features

Batching plants equipped with advanced features such as computerized control systems, automation, and environmental control technologies may have higher initial costs but offer greater efficiency and productivity in the long run.

Manufacturer

Different manufacturers offer batching plants at varying price points based on their brand reputation, quality standards, and after-sales support.

As a rough estimate, the cost of a basic stationary concrete batching plant with a capacity of around 60-240 cubic meters per hour (m³/h) can range from $80,000 to $300,000 USD. However, larger plants or those with additional features and customization can exceed this range.

It’s essential to obtain detailed quotations from multiple suppliers, considering factors such as installation, transportation, and maintenance costs, to accurately assess the total investment required for a concrete batching plant tailored to your specific needs.

Let me explain in detail.

When it refers to the cost of a batch mix plant. We can’t tell you the specific cost. But we will tell you where you need to spend money. Goals will be the best factor that affects your choice of an ideal concrete batch plant.

Let’s look at them from three aspects. In addition to the concrete batching plant cost, there will be many things you need to afford, such as cost of raw materials, cost of labor, cost of electricity, cost of water, cost of later maintenance, cost of shipment, cost of insurance, etc. But the most important is concrete plant cost, it all depends on your goals.

1. For your own project
Is concrete batching plant profitable? The answer is right! If you want to produce concrete for your own project, we will recommend you buy a small hopper-type concrete batching plant. Because this type of hopper batching plant has characteristics of small volume, easy maintenance, you can choose AJ-25 and AJ-35. Here means capacity affects the cost.

What’s more, the configuration will also affect the cost, because the configuration is not stable, for example, you can choose a 50-ton cement silo, or you can choose a 100-ton cement silo, it depends on your construction period. But if you choose a small type AJ-25 or AJ-35, it will save much more money than choose AJ-50, AJ-60, AJ-75, and AJ-90.

2.For commercial concrete production

If you want to produce a large quantity of concrete for local businesses. Efficiency is the first factor you need to consider. So we must recommend you choose large commercial concrete batching plant, for example, AJ-60, AJ-90, AJ-120, and AJ-180.

Only these types can meet your requirement and help you produce concrete in large quantities and of high quality. But this belt type is much more expensive than the hopper type, and related costs will be much higher.

3.Many construction sites
If you have many construction sites, we advise you to choose a mobile type concrete batching plant, it can be disassembled for another site, and begin to produce concrete again. Moreover, the mobile concrete plant has a small footprint and volume, it is very convenient to move among near sites.
