1. Save Up To 50% On Your Concrete Costs
When using a volumetric mixer, you are in control of the concrete on each job. This results in accurate costs due to the exact amount poured for every job. Your business will have increased productivity thanks to less employee downtime and elimination of wasted concrete.
2. No “Hot Loads” Or Limited Distance To Jobs
With separate aggregate storage containers on the mixer, concrete is made on-site. This allows you accurate and quality controlled concrete for each project.
3. More Time Efficient
Returning to the batch plant to change mixes for a different application between jobs is a past hassle. The same goes for employee downtime as it’s possible to complete jobs on-demand with a volumetric mixer.
4. Consistently Produce The Exact Mix Design Each Time
Change or replicate mix designs and additives at any time. Computerized calculations
make the precise quantity of concrete needed.
A mobile volumetric mixer produces concrete for a range of applications, including:
Utility – sewer, water
Airport runway repair;
Bridge deck overlays;
Foundations, streets, driveways, patios, sidewalks;
Remote or difficult-to-access locations;
Gunite and shotcrete
Using an exact amount of concrete eliminates wasting aggregates and other resources. This means saving water and reducing carbon emissions.
6. Reduced Labor Costs
Only one employee is needed to run the entire system – drive the unit, and pour concrete at the job site.
7. Store Every Admix In The Computer
Each uploaded admix stays in the system memory for easy navigation to frequently used
designs. This includes the history of all mixtures and quantities of each.
8. Improved Location Mobility
The name says it all: volumetric concrete mixers can reach remote or difficult to access locations since the mixer is mounted on a truck chassis or on a trailer.
9. Easy To Reload Aggregates
A mobile mixer can be filled anywhere. As long as there is a stock of cement, sand, gravel, and water, the location can be your supply hub. There’s no need for special equipment or a large investment.
