What is Volumetric Concrete?
Volumetric Concrete (or Mix On Site Concrete) is concrete which is mixed by volume of material, rather than weight. Volumetric Concrete is typically mixed on-site in volumetric concrete mixers, which are self-contained portable batch plants. These specialist trucks contain all the requisite concrete ingredient materials (sand, aggregate, cement, admixture and water).
Mobile volumetric mixers provide the flexibility to produce concrete on-site in any quantity without waste. They also produce concrete at any specified slump or water-cement ratio. Mixes and grades can be switched between jobs, or even during a job if required, by simply adjusting the machine ’s proportioning controls.
The trucks are driven to the site where the mix can be produced to a given specification and delivered in precise quantities
Volumetric Concrete Mixers
Our state-of-the-art volumetric concrete trucks can supply concrete in volumes from as little as a barrow load up to impressive rates of 50m3 per hour and can supply all mixes and grades of concrete, including screed and mortar. They also boast a number of features which are not standard on other models including: roll-over sheet, electronic measuring system, ticket printer, friction-less conveyor system, hydraulic chute control and wireless remote control.
