What are concrete batching plant’s influencing factors? Before answering this question, let us see another question firstly.
What places are concrete batching plant suitable to be applied?
Concrete batching plant is applicable to highway, bridge, water conservancy, terminals and other industrial and civil construction engineerings. Concrete batching plant can mix dry concrete, light weight aggregate concrete and mortar, so concrete batching plant is a kind of high efficiency concrete mixing station.
Then what are concrete batching plant’s influencing factors? In recent years, concrete batching plants’(especially those work in the field for long time) control system even the whole system is greatly damaged because of lightning. Thus causing the whole concrete batching plant stop working from time to time, which seriously affect the progress of projects. So, taking seriously the rainproof system design of concrete batching plant has become an unavoidable topic to designers.
In addition, other concrete batching plant’s influencing factors are as follows:
1. the number of cement paste
If the number of cement paste is too much, cement is easy to flow. If the number of cement paste is too little, cement is easy to collapse.
2. the cement paste consistency
Cement paste consistency depends on the water cement ratio. If water cement ratio is small, then cement paste is thick and its mobility is small. Cement paste also has good cohesiveness and water-retaining property. If water cement ratio is too small, cement paste can not guarantee the construction density; If water cement ratio is too big, which will reduce strength and durability of cement paste.
In addition, the sand ratio, types of cement and aggregate properties and the temperature, time, admixture are all concrete batching plant’s influencing factors.
