LOAD CELLS WEIGHING SYSTEM FOR PERFECT CONTROL OF MIX DESIGN
Carmix with Load Cells system can dose, scale and program any material composing any mix design on site as all concrete batching plants. This is possible thanks to the four load cells sensors, controlled by an on-board programmable computer, placed at the bottom of the drum in order to work as weight sensors precisely where the mixing takes place (RMC PLANT standard level technology). If compared with systems using pressure sensors on the shovel, this system ensures: direct control of elements where the mix is made (including the actual weight of water for W/C ratio optimisation), higher accuracy and 3 to 5% weight deviation like in the most sophisticated concrete plants and the verification of finished product.
CONCRETE-MATE: INNOVATIVE CONCRETE-MATE FOR PERFECT CONTROL OF MIX DESIGN
Concrete-Mate, is a Mix Design Manager applying the ‘RMC Plant standard level’ management software, which, using four sensors in the mixing unit, guarantees a top-quality concrete mix complying with international concrete production standards (UNI 206-1 – ASTM – ACI, etc) and total control over production costs. With Concrete-Mate, it is possible select up to 15 different formulas and 99 types of materials in order to obtain multiple combinations to fit any worksite requirement.
When the software has stored a mix design, it indicates to the operator the dosage of each element, the sequence of operations and the working time for each process step, thus avoiding any possible error. Moreover, at the end of process, not only the software issues a certificate “RMC PLANT standard” with analytical data of the mix design (including the name of Committer, jobsite, operator, mixing time), but it also shows the mixing time, the weight deviation between executed and recorded mix design by material and by total.
This allows to sell the concrete and have great transparency and traceability throughout the production process.
