The mixing time of concrete in batching plant is about 25 to 30 seconds. The concrete mixing is one of the process of concrete batching plant. The whole process of concrete batching plant includes four steps.
1. The aggregate batched by batching machine.
2. Aggregate transferred to the waiting bin or the mixer by the hopper lifting machine or belt conveyor.
3. Concrete mixed in the mixing machine.
4. Concrete discharged into the concrete mixer truck.
There are different time between belt concrete batching plant and hopper concrete batching plant. The whole work process of belt concrete batching plant is about 60 seconds, so 60 batches can be completed in an hour. The whole work process of hopper concrete batching plant is about 75 seconds, so 50 batches can be completed in an hour. Due to the lifting time by the hopper is longer, so the working process time of hopper concrete batching plant is longer than the belt plant.
Take the HZS50 concrete batching plant with hopper lifter for example to introduce the time of each process in detail.
Aggregates in batching machine, cement, water, additives are prepared at the same time.Taking the three-bin batching machine as an example, each material takes 5 to 10 seconds.
From weight to bucket lifting hopper: about 10 to 15 seconds.
Lifting: lifting by hopper lifter is about 22 seconds.
Mixing: at this time, cement, water, admixtures and other fine materials are almost matched, and can be mixed into the mixing machine at the same time, the mixing time is about 25 to 30 seconds.
Discharge: concrete discharged into the concrete mixer truck needs about 12 to 15 seconds.
|Aggregate batching||5s to 10s|
|From weigh to bucket Lifting hopper||10s to 15s|
|Lifting by hopper lifter||22s|
|Mixing||25s to 30s|
|Discharge||12s to 15s|
The first batch is about 100 seconds in total, due to the batching time of the second batch overlaps the time of lifting and mixing of the first batch, so the working process of the second batch is about 70 seconds. In general, we calculate it as 75 seconds.
How Long Does It Take to Install Concrete Mixing Plant?
Within 15 days without cement bins, within 30 days with the cement bin split.
How Many People Do You Need to Install the Concrete Mixing Plant?
About six workers, including 1 to 2 electricians, 1 to 2 welders 4 to 5 and auxiliary installed workers. The actual worker can be adjusted according to the size of the concrete mixing plant.
