What Is An RMC Plant?

RMC plant is short for “ready-mix concrete plant”. It is a complete set of equipment that is used to produce concrete mixture by batching and mixing cement, sand, water, and admixture according to a certain preset proportion.

It is fully equipped to handle the complete concrete manufacturing process as required.

The whole system of a ready-mix concrete plant consists of seven systems, including –

  1. Batching machine
  2. Weighing system
  3. Conveying system
  4. Mixing system
  5. Storage system
  6. Control system
  7. Dust removal system

The concrete mixture produced by the rmc plant is widely used in various projects such as – building roads, repairing bridges, building houses, construction of tunnels, airports, water conservancy projects, and the likes.

Different types of concrete mixing plants can be selected to suit the different construction needs.

Types of RMC Batching Plants

There are many types of RMC plants that are available to meet the different needs of various projects:

1. According to the mobile mode:  It can be divided into three types – fixed mixing stations, ground-free base stations, and mobile mixing stations. They are different in appearance and structure, and requirements for the foundation also differ.

2. According to the production capacity: HZS25, HZS35, HZS50, HZS60, HZS75, HZS90, HEZS120, HZS180, and HZS240.

3. According to the number of mixers: It can be divided into single-host and double-host mixing stations.

4. According to the feeding mode: It can be divided into bucket mixing stations and inclined belt mixing stations.

5. According to whether the mixing main machine is required: It can be divided into dry mixing station and wet mixing station.

6. According to purpose: It can be divided into commercial mixing station and engineering station.

What is RMC plant capacity?

The capacity of an RMC plant is one of the most important character indexes that describe the RMC plant cost. The production capacity of the plant means the efficiency to produce concrete and is calculated based on the quantity of concrete produced per hour.

The production capacity of the batching plant for sale is one of the biggest factors in determining the price of the batching plant. The ready-mix concrete plants are designed to suit various production scales.

According to the production capacity, the concrete mixing plant is divided into different models such as – HZS25, HZS35, HZS50, HZS60, HZS75, HZS90, HZS120, HZS180, and HZS 240.

The model HZS25 refers to a mixing plant with a production capacity of 25 cubic meters per hour (25m3/h), and the main machine is a forced mixer with double horizontal shafts.

How Much Does It Cost To Build A 60m3 RMC Plant?

The 60m3 concrete mixing plant is a complete set of fully-automatic concrete mixing equipment which consists of – batching system, mixing system, electrical controls, and other parts. Since the theoretical output value reaches 60 cubic meters per hour (60m3/h), it is known as the “60 cubic meters mixing station”.

This type of mixer is suitable for construction sites that are medium-sized and above, concrete prefabricated parts factories, and commercial concrete production plants, with relatively large scale production quantities.

The system does not have a fixed configuration, such as – the number of cement silos, the number of batching machines, the height of outriggers, the type of control system, or single-machine mixing or double-machine mixing.

All equipment and its required quantity are configured according to customer needs and therefore the price of HZS60 mixing station equipment is not fixed and varies depending on the configuration selected by the customer.

What Are The Capital Investment Aspects That Need To Be Considered When Investing In Mixing Stations?

The RMC plant cost aspects that need to be considered before investing in a mixing station includes:

  • Purchase of equipment – This includes the anticipated cost for the complete set of equipment for the mixing station, supporting equipment such as loaders, concrete mixing tank trucks, etc.
  • Office equipment
  • Basic engineering construction cost
  • Construction cost of steel structure works
  • Construction cost of enclosed material yard
  • Laying cost of infrastructure facilities such as – water, electricity, heat, and sewage pipelines

Costs To Be Considered During The Operation Of The RMC Plant:

The rmc plant cost includes the variable costs that will be incurred on a day-to-day basis for running and maintaining the plant. Some points to be considered are –

  1. Variable cost – This includes the cost of raw materials such as – stone, sand, cement, fly ash, admixture, electricity. They vary depending on the quantity of concrete production and the fluctuating rate of raw materials.
  2. Fixed cost – This includes depreciation of equipment, depreciation of supporting houses, planning, design and organization expenses, staff salaries, interest on working capital. They are fixed in nature even with variations in production volume.
  3. Other costs – These are costs that are neither perfectly fixed nor perfectly variable. Some examples are – sales expenses, transportation expenses, maintenance expenses, office expenses.

How To Control The Cost Of Raw Materials And Reduce The Cost Of RMC Plants?

The cost of raw materials can be analyzed and segregated into three aspects such as – concrete technology, supplier selection, and management methods.

In effect, reducing the cost of raw materials used in the production of concrete plays a vital role in reducing the operational cost of the mixing station:

Application of new materials in concrete mix proportion:

  • In general, since the unit price of mineral powder and fly ash is lower than that of cement, using mineral powder and fly ash instead of cement can effectively reduce the production cost of concrete.
  • Proportioning the admixture by oneself: For some mixing stations with a large amount of admixture, the cost of raw materials can be effectively reduced by procuring the admixture raw materials for proportioning yourself rather than depending on others.

(1) The selection of suppliers should be complete.

  • You should consider factors such as terms of price, quality, and service.
  • It is advisable to consider multiple suppliers for each material and evaluate the suppliers regularly. This can help reduce the financial pressure of enterprises and facilitate the elimination of inferior suppliers.

(2) The management of raw materials is a very important factor in controlling the cost of raw materials.

First of all, we should understand the market dynamics (forces that impact prices and the corresponding behavior of producers and consumers) in time.

Then set a good inquiry mechanism, and then adjust the price of raw materials reasonably by dynamic price comparison.

Reasons For The Price Difference Of Various Concrete Mixing Stations

When buying a concrete mixing station, the customer is most concerned about the price. In fact, the key factor of how much the RMC plant cost depends on the customer’s needs. The price, power, and equipment of different types of commercial concrete are different.

Ordinary users more often tend to buy small commercial concrete mixing plants as they do not have huge capital investment capacity.

Generally, small commercial concrete mixing stations are used in rural construction or bridge repair and paving. Due to their smaller size and mobility, they are also suitable for rental purposes.

However, large-scale commercial concrete mixing stations require huge capital investment, thus mostly preferred by big corporate houses. They are mainly used for commercial mixing and large-scale projects such as national water conservancy, highways, high-rise buildings, and so on.

First of all, small commercial concrete mixing stations do not need to be equipped with high production capacity.

Some of its advantages are – they are relatively stable, require relatively smaller investment funds, and have a relatively wider range of applications. With large concrete mixing plants, investment capital is relatively higher and the productivity requirement is also much higher.

Moreover, in terms of maintenance, small commercial concrete mixing stations are relatively easier to maintain because the equipment is relatively smaller in size and the equipment number required is less. This reduces the cost of manpower and maintenance time is also relatively lesser.

Currently, concrete mixing stations mainly include:

  • Commercial concrete mixing stations – They are suitable for large-scale commercial concrete production enterprises.
  • Engineering concrete mixing stations – Suitable for highways, airstrips, railways, high-speed railways, and various other engineering projects.
  • Mobile concrete mixing stations – Suitable for projects with short construction periods, smaller quantity concrete requirement, and long engineering lines.
  • Simple concrete mixing stations – Suitable for small and medium-sized projects and rural markets.
