- Written by CP Staff
Manufacturers offer a range ofperformance options as producers gear for improved market conditions.
Central mixed batch plants are manufactured, engineered, installed and commissioned according to customer specifications. Vertical plants, low-profile or gravity installations, reversing drum or twinshaft mixers, automatic monitoring, high production capacity plants, seismic zone resistant plants, small footprint, aesthetic design and winterized plants are among options and solutions. BMH's signature RollMaster high-capacity reversing drum mixer rotates at full speed for charging and mixing. Variable-speed reverse rotation allows direct control of the discharge rate, producing a homogenous mix in a short period of time. — 888/793-9340; www.bmhsystems.com

In conjunction with Inventure Systems, the company offers the Workhorse reversing drum mixer for efficient, quiet, vibration-free operation and low maintenance on a range of central mixed plant models.The unique mixer interior paddle arrangement abbreviates mixing cycles and contributes to efficient use of cementitious materials. The mixer drum rotates in one direction for charging and reverses direction for discharging into trucks. The vessel runs on four variable frequency drive-controlled motors, the speed control enabling operators to time mix discharge rates to truck-loading capability. — 800/626-0200; www.stephensmfg.com
The 5 CM low profile, central mixed mobile plant combines output capability up to 130 yd./hour (100 cu. m) with portability, enabling convenient use at remote job sites and versatile operation for loading truck mixers, dump trucks, agitors and loaders regardless of their elevation. The model provides quality and consistency in concrete production and, for increased operating efficiency and reduced wear and tear, batches cement into the hopper by gravity. To accelerate erection and takedown time, the mobile plant is factory prewired and pre-plumbed, and equipped with an in-truss single compartment cement silo that ships integral to the structure. — 262/639-4050; www.rexcon.com
