Why Mixing Concrete On Site Is Better
We all know the basics of making concrete – inert materials or aggregates, cement, and water mix together to create concrete. Yet, the chemical reactions between water and cement compounds begin immediately after mixing the ingredients.
When mixed at the batch plant, the concrete materials have already started the curing process during the travel time. This minimizes available finishing time and, in many cases, if a truck is detained or late, water needs to be added at the job site, reducing the end product’s strength.
Concrete produced by a mobile volumetric concrete mixer will always produce the freshest and strongest end product for every job.
