The storage system of stationary concrete batching machine helps keep materials organized.
  • Aggregate bins are big containers for storing different kinds of small rocks and sand needed for the concrete.
  • Cement Silos are tall tanks that hold the cement powder. Cement silos store bulk cement for construction projects like buildings, roads, bridges, and water projects. They also hold cement in stationary concrete plants. The top has a dust collector to stop leaks. The bottom has an arch breaker to prevent clumps and ensure smooth discharge.

The Working Steps in Stationary Concrete Batching Plant Production

Let’s discover how a stationary concrete batching plant for sale mixes different materials to produce concrete.

  1. Send the aggregates to weighing, and then deliver the proportioned aggregates to the waiting storage bin through the hopper or belt conveyor;
  2. Discharge the materials from the cement silos to the screw conveyor and convey the powder to the powder weighing hopper through the screw conveyor and after the weighing, discharge them into the mixing console;
  3. Pump the water from the pool to the water weighing hopper, pump the additive from the additive pump to the additive weighing hopper, and after the weighing, discharge the additive to the water weighing hopper, and then discharge the mixture with water and additive to the mixing console;
  4. Mix powder, mixture with water and additive first, and discharge the aggregates to the mixing console and mix them together. After the mixing, discharge the concrete mixture to the concrete mixer truck and send them to the construction site.

The first three steps are conducted at the same time, which shortens the construction period effectively.
