A mobile concrete mixer, or mobile concrete dispenser, is an on-demand concrete production solution. It’s a batch plant mounted on a chassis – usually a truck or trailer – and carries unmixed material to a job site. The materials, such as sand, cement, coarse aggregates, water, and any other materials or chemicals needed for specialty applications, mix on a continuous or intermittent basis as required for fresh concrete.
This mixer can produce any amount of concrete, from a yard to 400 yards or more per day. Continuous pouring is possible as long as the unit is re-loaded with materials at the job site. Volumetric proportioning bases on volume, not weight. Through an easy calibration process it’s possible to produce concrete that consistently meets or exceeds the tolerances set in ASTM C685 and AASHTO M-241 standards along with DOT requirements. You have the exact amount needed every time.
The blending of materials is a continuous process, and the operator can stop mixing and delivery and start again at any time. This allows production to balance the demands of finishing and placing crews or other job requirements.
Alter or change mix designs without moving the machine; the operator can make adjustments at any time as required. When the job ends, cleanup is an easy process by only washing out the mixer area.
