Volumetric Concrete Mixing – What Is It?

If you have not heard of volumetric concrete mixing before, the information below may well change your thinking about batch concreting.

How volumetric works

Volumetric technology makes it easy. Load your materials in separate compartments and you’re ready to go. In fact, you can be ready to pour in a matter of seconds.

Cemen Tech volumetric machines are calibrated by weight so there’s no guesswork. The operator just needs to select from a range of mix designs then materials are dispensed via the linked dual auger system and conveyor belt into the mixing auger.

Just 10 seconds later, materials are mixed and ready to pour.

Clean up is easy too –  cleanout of the mixing auger takes less than 5 minutes. Then it’s on to the next job, which can have a different mix design and quantity required until all the materials have been used.
