What Is a Mini Concrete Batching Plant?
The Mini concrete batching plant is also known as a ‘Small’ concrete batching plant and is one of the many different types of concrete batching plant models. The structure and configuration of the Mini/Small concrete batching plant are simple, but it produces high-quality concrete with a capacity usually less than 60 m³/hour.
As with other types of concrete batching plants, the Mini/Small concrete batching plant also features a combination of various functions such as material feeding, weighing, batching, mixing, conveying/transferring, and electronic control system.
The mini concrete batching plant is not a specific batching plant model but is listed here in response to requests from customers who want to reduce investment costs. There are some construction projects, which only need a small amount of high-quality concrete per hour for which the Mini concrete mixing plant is adequate.
Small concrete batching plants not only help new businesses to gain a foothold in the early stages of a business but also are cost-effective for larger businesses that want to take on smaller jobs.
When it comes to making a purchase decision, the Luton Concrete Batching Plants offers many reasons to choose from their wide range of batching plants.

Main Components of Mini Cement Plant
The main components of a Mini concrete batching plant consists of a material storage system, a material conveying system, a material weighing system, a mixing system, and a control system. Let us look at each of these in brief.
Material Storage Bin
The material storage bin is a storage compartment for storing different kinds of aggregates. According to your requirement, you can choose from three or four types of material storage bins.
The bins hold materials like different sizes of aggregates, sand, etc. in different compartments.
The cement silo is specifically used to store cement and fly ash. There are two types of cement silos that you can choose from according to your requirements – the welded type and the bolted type.
The cement silo is to store large volumes of cement that comes from bulk trucks and is usually provided with safety accessories.
Material Conveying System
The material conveying system is used to transport the material steadily into the mixer. The material conveyor carries the weighed aggregates to the mixing unit for further processing.
There are two types of material conveying systems: the belt conveyor and the screw conveyor. The Mini mobile concrete batching plant generally utilizes the belt conveyor system due to its convenience.
There are four kinds of weighing systems in a Mini concrete batching plant:
- The aggregate weighing system
- The powder weighing system
- The water weighing system
- The additive weighing system
Concrete Batching Mixer System
We adopt the JS concrete mixer in the Mini concrete batching system due to its excellent characteristics of
- Strong mixing ability
- High working efficiency
- Mixing evenly
The control system is the most important part of the Mini concrete batching plant as it makes the whole production process easy and cost-effective. It also saves the labor cost associated with doing the various processes manually.
The control system controls the processes involved with the running of the machine and is equipped with a PLD panel for easy control.
It also has the option of saving and printing various material recipes for mixing in the equipment. The control system provides fast and accurate measurements of the different ingredients.
To meet the growing demand for high-quality concrete, the control system processes and devices are updated and designed for greater performance.

How does a Mini ready mix concrete (RMC) batching plant work?
The working of a Mini batching plant includes the following stages:
1. Raw material feeding
The raw materials required for the production of concrete are first acquired and stored. Aggregate, sand, and other admixtures are stored in storage bins and cement is stored in cement silos.
2. Raw material metering
The mixing plant is started and the required formulations for raw material mixing are set in the control panel. The various materials are weighed individually through the weighing system of the Mini concrete batching plant.
3. Raw material transportation
After the individual materials are weighed, the aggregate hopper door is closed. The discharging gate is now opened and the aggregates are discharged to the running conveyor belt.
The conveyor belt will transfer the aggregates to the inclined belt conveyor system, and the inclined belt conveyor will transfer the aggregates into the aggregate hopper.
4. Raw material unloading
Now the water and admixtures are weighed, and the admixture metering bucket is opened by using a pneumatic butterfly valve. This allows the admixture to be discharged into the water metering bucket.
The aggregate, sand, water, cement, and admixture are finally discharged into the concrete mixer according to the sequence of operations set into the control panel.
