Importance of Concrete Mixer in Concrete Mixing Plant
Concrete mixing plant is to combine various ingredients including sand, water, aggregate, fly ash, cement and additive to form concrete. Concrete mixer, material weighing systems, material conveying system, material storage system, control system and other accessories compose a concrete mixing plant.
The core competence is of a concrete mixing plant is concrete mixer, therefore, concrete mixer is crucial in achieving high quality concrete. There are two main types: compulsory concrete mixer and self-loading concrete mixer. The former is simple and easy to operate, applies in small construction projects. However, for its limited speed and though-put rate, more people prefer compulsory concrete mixer. From the perspective of structures, the compulsory concrete mixer shall mainly be divided into planetary mixer, single-shaft mixer and twin-shaft mixer. Among these three types of mixers, twin-shaft concrete mixer has the most highly performance. Its advantages include consistently high mixture quality, material against wear, easy maintenance and energy saving.
