How Does A Concrete Batch Plant Work

A concrete batching plant mainly aims to create concrete mixture with various materials. Some of these materials include sand, cement, fly ash, gravel etc. These materials are blended in the twin-shaft compulsory concrete mixer. For concrete batch plant, it consists of many components, including batching machine, belt conveyor, cement silo, weighing scale, screw conveyor, control panel etc.

Concrete batch plant is totally run by an controller who operate the PLC controlling system to input the required measurements of concrete. After pressing the button on control panel, the different kinds of materials will be measured and then they will be transported into the mixer. After mixing, the concrete mixture will be let out and delivered by concrete truck and finally transported to the construction site.

How Does A Concrete Batch Plant Work

Well, what is the elaborate working processes of concrete batching plant. The following is how does a concrete plant work.

Raw materials are first poured into large concrete batching machine and they are delivered into a concrete mixer via a belted conveyor or hopper. The materials are precisely weighed before being transported to the mixer thereby maintaining consistency in output.


Concrete batching plants can be categorized into 4 major parts, including powder feeding, aggregate feeding, storage and transportation. Concrete batching plants are normally used to make quaking concrete and hard concrete suitable for bridge and road construction.

When control system of a mixer is directly connected to a source of electricity, system initialization will take place which includes concrete slump, productivity, formula number and concrete grade. Each hopper of concrete batching machine is tested according to weighing system. Belt conveyor is then started with an aim of delivering aggregate to the hopper. The valve in the bolted cement silo on the other hand should be opened in order to make the powder flow into the hopper. The door of the hopper is automatically opened when the total weight of materials reaches a specific amount. When the time set is over, the door to the concrete mixer will open and concrete will flow into the mixer truck. The process should be done very carefully in order to avoid contamination of concrete.
