There are two types concrete batching plants: dry mix concrete batching plant and wet batch concrete plant. Both them are used to produce concrete, but wet concrete plant can produce concrete on its own, because it has twin shaft paddle mixer as the mixing console. However, dry type concrete batching plant needs to cooperate with concrete mixer truck, only this can it produce concrete for construction project. Do you want to know any other differences of them? This page will tell you from four aspects: appearance, configuration, application and advantage in detail.
Dry Mix Concrete Batching Plant VS Wet Mix Concrete Batch Plant
Compared with wet batch plant, dry batch plant has simpler appearance and less equipment.
The only difference is wet mix plant has mixing engine-twin shaft concrete mixer, while dry batch plant has no.

But there is another thing you need to note, wet mix concrete batch plant includes stationary type and mobile type, we named stationary concrete plant as HZS25, HZS35, HZS50, HZS60, HZS75, HZS90, HZS120, HZS180 and HZS240, among them, HZS60, HZS90, HZS120, HZS180 and HZS240 are belt conveyor type concrete batching plants, the others belong to skip hoist concrete batch plants; we name mobile type wet batch plant as YHZS25, YHZS35, YHZS50, YHZS75 and YHZS90. The configuration of mobile type concrete plant is the same as stationary concrete batching plants, the only difference is that it can move freely, it is indeed on a semi-trailer unit, therefore, it is easy to install, disassemble and move from one place to another.
Belt Conveyor Concrete Batching Plant: HZS25-HZS75
|Aggregate Bin volume(m3)||8.38||12||20||30||40|

Dry batch concrete plant is more suitable for these construction projects where requires large amounts of concrete and general quality of concrete. Such as: water resource, electric power, highway, harbor, bridge, airport, large precast products plant and commercial concrete plants. It is actually used to batch aggregate, and it has no mixing engine, all aggregates after PLD batching machine will be conveyed to storage silo, then discharge into concrete mixer truck. Concrete mixer truck will transport concrete to the construction site. Actually, it’s function is indeed a concrete batching machine.
Wet batch plant has mixing engine, it is with wide range of application in medium-scale construction sites, prefabricated plants, commercial concrete production plants and other many concrete construction projects. Because the quality of concrete produced by wet concrete plant is very high.
Mobile Type Wet Mix Concrete Btatching Plant
|Theoretical production capacity(m³/h)||25||35||50||75|
|Aggregate Bin volume(m³)||3.2||7.3||8.3||12|
|Weighing Accuracy||Aggregate (KG)||±2%||±2%||±2%||±2%|
|Discharging height(M)||2.8 m||2.8 m||2.8 m||3.8m|
Dry batch plant has the advantages of high efficiency, convenient operation and stability performance. In addition, dry batch plant can be customized according to different of users. It is always work with concrete mixer truck, when it finish the concrete dosing, it will discharge aggregate into feeding chute of concrete truck, then water supply system of concrete truck will add water into mixer tank, then mix aggregate while walking on the road. This will save some time to some extent.
Wet batch plant can produce good quality concrete, it usually uses twin shaft concrete mixer, planetary mixer, or SICOMA twin shaft compulsory concrete mixer as the mixing engine, so it has the advantages of high productivity and quality, reliable performance, low investment and long service life.
