Standard Unit Features

  • Square Strike Offs
    The outlet and metering of the Aggregate and Sand in our mixer is design so that material can come out in as close to a perfect cube as possible - this means your aggregate usage is extremely accurate and your concrete is always perfect.
  • Dual Over-Under Cement Metering Augers
    Our cement bin uses two augers to meter out he cement from the Portland bin. The auger on top constantly feeds the metering auger below so that you can pour concrete to till the last of your cement is remaining in the bin.
  • Two Admix Systems
    Standard on all mixers is capacity for two liquid admixes so that your concrete will be flexible and exactly what your customers desire.
  • Cement & Aggregate Drive Metering System
    The choice between mechanically linked and hydraulically linked drive. Cement is the most expensive ingredient in concrete, so management is essential. Choose to have your mixer mechanically linked with the MDM system or electronically linked with the HDM system.
  • Dual Stage Water System
    Our water system is designed to give you lower pressure when you are producing concrete and then when you are washing up you will be able to get up to 100psi pressure allowing you to keep your unit looking the smartest in the market.

Frequently asked Questions

  • What are the advantages of a volumetric concrete mixer verses traditional ready-mix drum mixed concrete?

    Both a concrete plant with ready-mix drum trucks and volumetric concrete mixer produce quality concrete however, there are some distinct advantages to choosing a volumetric mixer.

    i. Customer only pays for exactly what they need: Because the VCM is in essence a mobile concrete batching plant if the customer needs a little more or a little less then what they originally thought it is not a problem because production stops when the job is done. With Ready-mix drum trucks the customer has to make an accurate estimate of what is needed because it is batched and water is added at the plant then delivered to the site.

    ii. Concrete is ALWAYS Fresh: With a VCM the concrete is made fresh every second as it is being produced so the newest concrete is what is being laid. With concrete from a drum truck the concrete coming out last is the oldest and may already be stiff.

    iii. Small quantities are not a problem: With a VCM you can produce as little as a quarter of a cubic meter or yard of concrete and then pack up and go to another job. With traditional drum trucks, this becomes almost impossible and very uneconomical. After a small load, the drum truck also has to return to the plant to reload for the next job.

    iv. Multiple mixes in one stop: With a VCM the operator can do a variety of concrete mixes in one stop. For instance, perhaps a sidewalk had to be removed to get at some utilities. A VCM could then produce some fill concrete to cover the utilities and bring the grade to underside of sidewalk slab height. Then the slab could be formed up and the VCM could produce the correct concrete for the sidewalk slab as well without have to return to the job site.

    v. Time is not a factor: With a VCM the problem of time does exist. Concrete in a delivered in a drum truck is exposed to water at the plant and is now perishable and the time to get it delivered and into position is less than 2 hours. With a VCM you can deliver concrete an infinite distance away. With a VCM you can be stuck in traffic and still deliver fresh concrete to the customer. With a VCM delays on the job are much less stressful.

    vi. Evenings and Weekends: To open a traditional batch plant after hours or on the weekends can cost thousands of dollars and require a minimum quantity of concrete to be ordered. With a VCM anytime and any day is just like any other.
