Shown at World of Concrete 2012, Aercrete 625 is a mobile unit which blends foam concrete from sand, cement, water, Aercell A-7 and air directly at the building site. The machine continually mixes all ingredients mechanically, which allows for fresh concrete with the best properties. The process is controlled and supervised by a computer which measures all ingredients as stated on the various recipes. All important parameters are logged so that the recipe is followed to proper standards.
Foam concrete can be used in many different areas, for example civil engineering and mining. In this industry, it can be used for void filling; frost-insulating compensation of foundations for streets and roads; stabilizing easy filling for bridge supports; insulating and stabilizing underground pipes and heating systems; injecting and filling of docks and quays; and, filling abandoned tanks and pipe systems. In construction, the foam concrete can be used for roof decks; floor decks; fire protection for walls; ground insulation under the foundation for houses and industrial estates; concrete blocks; wall elements; and, foundations (slab-on-grade).
