Product storage in the mixing plant
Concrete is an essential material for building houses, bridges and tunnels as well as for the production of slabs. Job sites are supplied via stationary or mobile mixing equipment. All materials needed for the production of concrete are temporarily stored in silos.
General process information
Concrete is made from a mix of cement (mostly Portland cement), aggregates (sand, gravel or crushed stones) and water. Aggregates make up the majority of the concrete’s volume and the cement provides resistance. Additives are incorporated into the mix to ensure particular properties such as improved durability or shortened hardening times.
During the mixing phase, the different components come together to produce a uniform mass of concrete.
