ECI Acquires a Mobile Volumetric Concrete Mixer
ECI recently purchased a Zimmerman volumetric mixer. The 10-cy portable concrete batch plant is now servicing our projects with ready-mix concrete product. We have dialed in several mix designs at a variety of strengths and additives. We can also produce flow fill and grout.
A significant advantage with a volumetric mixer is that the concrete ingredients (cement, water, sand, stone, and additives) are stored on the truck and are mixed only as needed at the time the concrete is needed. Therefore:
- The work can occur on any day at any time without a batch plant.
- The concrete will not “time out” from an extensive travel time or wait time on site. The concrete is batched fresh as it is needed.
- The concrete is mixed as needed so that shortages and overages are eliminated.
