The concrete filling station can supply high-quality concrete without long wait times. Instead of stockpiling gravel and cement onsite and mixing it by hand, various high-quality concrete types can be ordered and loaded in a few steps.

Bereuter consulted dealer Avesco and it was agreed that the Ammann CBT 60 Elba Concrete-Mixing Plant would meet the firm’s needs.

The plant was favoured due to its foundation-free assembly; compact dimensions; and productivity. An additional module is fitted in the as1 Control System for the mix and dispensing process.

The CBT 60 Elba was delivered with a special folding mechanism, as well as a compact bucket elevator instead of a belt conveyor. A recycled water system is located on the site and dust emissions and noise are minimised.

The firm can supply small and large concrete volumes from 0.25-1m3/batch. Orders are placed by phone, e-mail or made on-site.

A traffic light system controls access to the loading area. Light barriers help with truck positioning so that concrete is loaded correctly. At the control station, the order is verified using a QR code on the delivery note and the mixing process starts, with the material being dispensed in minutes.

Material quality is high and the 1 m3 single-shaft mixer is equipped with a two-zone counter-flow mixing plant, ensuring a homogenous mix. Consistency is controlled and checked by the as1 and can be monitored through the integrated mixer camera.

The plant features 156m3 of storage of the most common gravel sizes. With six chambers in the linear batcher, the Bereuter team can address customer needs and produce different types of concrete from primary and recycled materials. Metering on the weighing belt is precise and controlled by feed valves attached to the silo discharge.
