Concrete batching plants
To help develop this article, click 'Edit this article' above.
 Different types of plants
 Central mix
A central mix concrete batching plant mixes every one of the ingredients in one location. The mixture is then transported to the construction site by concrete trucks. The main benefit of using this type of plant is the fact that each of the ingredients are mixed together at once and in one location.
 Ready mix
Ready mix concrete batching plants have all of the ingredients inside the plant mixed together - except the liquid. The mix is put into a truck, and this is when the water is added. At this point, the mix becomes concrete. The concrete is then transported to the construction site.
