Elkon supplies concrete batching plant in Israel

Published by
World Cement,

Elkon has supplied a specially equipped ELKOMIX-100 DRY Type Concrete Batching Plant to a clay and ready-mix supplier company near Haifa, Israel.

The plant is equipped with 6x20 m3 aggregate storage silos, which allow the storage of six kinds of aggregate or sand material. Aggregate loading is done using a radial type automated aggregate feeding system supplied by ELKON. This consists of an aggregate loading hopper, where the aggregate is first loaded, and a transfer conveyor that can move on a radial line to the ground to load aggregates into the selected aggregate bin.

The top of the aggregate storage silo and truck mixer filling point is covered by trapeze sheets to protect the environment against dust emission. There is also a filter at the truckmixer loading point. The top of the aggregate transfer conveyor and automated aggregate feeding system’s transfer belt are also covered by rain cover sheets.
