Elkon provides concrete batching plant in Poland

Published by
World Cement,

Elkon has provided a new batching plant to the biggest concrete supplier in the Czestochowa area of Poland.

Company executives chose the Elkomix-120 Quick Master compact concrete batching plant following their visit to Elkon’s integrated production facilities. The compact concrete mixing plant was chosen due to space limitations at the facility. The aggregate storage bins were buried into the ground for the same reason, which prevented the need to construct an aggregate loading ramp.

Additionally, a water hopper was built for the weighing of recycled water and a correction water line with a water meter were included, to enable precision when adding water during mixing. Four 75 t cement silos will be connected to the concrete mixing plant.

90% of the welding on the new batching plant was performed by automated welding robots, ensuring high quality and precision. Both twin shaft mixers, as well as all of the aggregate storage bin chassis, panels and weigh hoppers, cement silos and cement screws were produced in 10 automated welding stations in Elkon factories, without human interference.
