With Ready Mix Concrete, There’s No Need for the Hassles of An Onsite Concrete Mixing Set Up
To ensure strong, quality concrete, contractors will typically mix it immediately before pouring. The location and process of how it is mixed will make a huge difference in the amount of time spent on a project. The concrete is either mixed on site or at a local concrete plant.
When mixing concrete on site, workers have to set up the concrete mixing equipment. The site must have enough space to store raw materials and equipment for the installation. Workers will also mix and pour concrete, manage materials and waste, and clean the equipment after use.
When concrete is mixed at a plant, this is known as ready mix concrete. With ready mix concrete, there is no need for any extra work as it is ready to use upon delivery. Rather than expending time and energy mixing concrete onsite, you can leave this process to the pros and have it delivered to you. Since ready mix suppliers have the following concrete equipment, you won’t have to worry about the hassles of on site concrete mixing.
Ready Mix Concrete Plants
Concrete plants have the facilities to store raw materials and mix concrete. These plants have computerized batching equipment that includes a weighing system for additives, aggregates, cement, sand, and water. The computer software system avoids human error when mixing concrete, therefore it will produce the proper concrete mix. Ready mix concrete plants can produce any type of concrete and in any amount, offering quality customized mixes for various construction project needs.
Delivery & Pumping Equipment
With the use of concrete mixing transport trucks, concrete suppliers will deliver the product to you. This type of truck will turn and mix the concrete to maintain the product’s liquid state during transportation. Upon delivery, the suppliers will also pump and pour the concrete with their pumping equipment. These pumping services are especially useful for pouring concrete for large projects and in areas that are hard to reach. The pumping equipment pumps large volumes of concrete to expedite the process. This saves both time and labour throughout the construction project.
Ready mix concrete suppliers also take care of the tedious cleaning of equipment. Also, you won’t have to dismantle any concrete equipment or worry about disposing of concrete waste. Ready mix concrete suppliers have the equipment needed for every step, so you don’t have to worry about the hassles of on site concrete mixing.
