to a new yard.
We'll be opening operation soon!
Please check back with us late July or early August.
Sorry for the inconvenience and we look forward to serving your concrete needs in the near future.
⮞ WHAT IS CONCRETE?
In its simplest form, concrete is a mixture of paste and aggregates
(sand & rock). The paste, composed of cement and water, coats the surface of the fine (sand) and coarse aggregates (rocks) and binds them together into a rock-like mass known as concrete.
⮞ WHAT IS A MOBILE CONCRETE PLANT?
It's a volumetric concrete mixer on a truck or trailer that contains concrete ingredient materials and water to be mixed at the job site to produce the exact amount of concrete needed.
⮞ HOW DOES A MOBILE MIXER PRODUCE CONCRETE?
A volumetric concrete mixer produces concrete by proportioning the materials out over time by volume and relating that volume back to the materials specific weight. These materials are then dispensed into a mixing auger where they are completely mixed together and all the cement is able to come in contact with water to begin hydration as well as encapsulate the complete surfaces of any other material being added into the mix. The material is being added into the mix auger as if it were in handfuls at at a time so the there is more than enough energy in the mix auger to ensure a complete and uniform mix by the time it comes out of the discharge end of the auger, which is typically ony about 5-10 seconds.
⮞ WHAT IS A MOBILE CONCRETE PLANT?
Concrete mixtures can be designed to provide a wide range of mechanical and durability properties to meet the design requirements of a structure. The compressive strength of concrete is the most common performance measure used by the engineer in designing buildings and other structures. The compressive strength is measured by breaking cylindrical concrete specimens in a compression testing machine. The compressive strength is calculated from the failure load divided by the cross-sectional area resisting the load and reported in units of pound-force per square inch (psi) in US customary units or megapascals (MPa) in SI units. Concrete compressive strength requirements can vary from 2500psi (17 Mpa) for residential concrete to 4000 psi (28Mpa0 and higher in commercial structures. Higher strengths up to and exceeding 10,000 psi (70 MPa) are specified for certain applicants.
Addressing All Your Concrete Production Needs
Meet our trucks
1. Water Tank: Poly water tank at the front of the unit is pumped with a hydraulic pump to the mixing auger
2. Aggregate Bin: Holds your aggregates of choice. Typically it comes as a divided bin 45% and 55% stone in volume. This aggregate is metered by volume to the mixing auger using a rugged belt over chain conveyor system.
3. Hydraulic System: 1833-MIX IT 4U! mixer uses a state-of-the-art variable displacement load sense hydraulic system which is more efficient and runs cooler.
4. Cement or Portland Bin: We made our cement bin big enough for any mix designs. The cenebt feed is mechanically linked to the aggregate feed so your ratios never go out an are extremely accurate.
5. Operators Panel: The controls for the 1833-MIX IT 4U! mixer are designed to be simple to use and provide peace of mind with manual handles for back up.
6. Admix System: The standard 1833-MIX IT 4U! mixer comes with two admix systems with the option to add more. The admixes are delivered to the mix using electric pumps
7. Mix Auger: The 1833-MIX IT 4U! Standard mix auger is a 12" by 9" long mix auger with tow mix areas to ensure your mix comes out homogenously and all the cement particles are saturated. Dry mixes are a breeze
