Ready mix concrete edges out on concrete mixed on-site in many areas. For one, site mixed concrete is more time-intensive and usually has to go through so many stages before it is ready. Ready mix concrete does not require workers to use as much equipment as site mixed concrete does. It is also of better quality and would guarantee higher durability.
Ready mix concrete is made up of sand, cement (typically Portland cement), gravel, crushed stone, and water.
There are three main types of ready mixed concrete; central mixed concrete, shrink mixed concrete and transit mixed concrete. Central mixed concrete is concrete that is mixed completely before it is put in the truck’s mixer which operates as an agitator for it when it is being transported. Shrink mixed concrete is only moderately mixed at the plant site, then loaded into the truck and mixed more in the truck. The transit mixed concrete is essentially mixed during transit.
To work out how much concrete you will need for your project you can use our free ready mix concrete calculator available on our website. When calculating the amount of concrete you will require, we advise that you add an extra 5 to 10% of your estimated total to allow for possible errors, such as spillage, over-excavation or uneven surfaces.
The average ready mix concrete project can be expected to last for an incredibly long time, even in places that experience high traffic. Projections are estimated to be around 30 years, which is a lot more than the usual 10-12 years of common asphalt.
Ready mix concrete is of higher quality and has many benefits over regular concrete, so it costs more. Examining long-term costs – including manpower needed at the site, durability, and longevity – it is cheaper than regular concrete in a sense.
Depending on the method of pumping, concrete pumps can reach up to 150 metres. An average of about 50 metres is accurate.
Boom pumps are more efficient than line pumps. It pumps concrete in a shorter time and is much more accurate. It is also better for pumping at heights. The only drawback is that it is more expensive. Line pumps also reach further horizontal distances.
Yes, boom pumps attached to a truck with a robotic arm can pump concrete over vertical distances.
