Game changer in concrete Production
Design and development of innovative, sustainable and low carbon footprint concrete batching plant systems with:

• Faster aggregates feeding
• Smart powders, water, and additives dosing methodology
• Smoother, faster, and more effective mixing
• Faster and more efficient mixer discharge
• Smaller total installation space needed & lower structure
(compared to belt-holding hopper plants)
• Ergonomic control cabin
• Reduced water quantity for mixer cleaning

STRANUS PROJECT

The aim of the project was to find optimal mixing procedures for production of a homogeneous, workable mixture & quality concrete using two-stage mixing.

• The specific objectives of the investigations were as follows:
• Achieving optimal mixing energy and time for a homogeneous cementitious material
• Characterizing the homogeneity and flow property of the pastes
• Investigating effective methods for coating aggregate particles with cement slurry
• Studying the effect of the two-stage mixing procedure on concrete properties
• Obtaining the improved production rates
• Design & construction of a production unit with adaptation of the technology
and empirical knowledge
