Sporting heavy-duty construction, the system comprises 500-gal. holding and 580-gal. weigh scale tanks; 3-in. and 6-in. holding tank fill line and discharge; 6-in. weigh scale discharge; capacitance probe level indicator; ½-in. solenoid valve manual override; discharge valve limit switch/posi- tion indicator; NEMA four-valve bank enclosure; and, OSHA-compliant catwalk. A 120-volt AC electric over requires 120 psi air. — Ameri- can Fabrication Services LLC, Talking Rock, Ga., 678/654-5470; www. INNOVATIONS REPORT BATCH PLANTS Company's EconoBatch has capacities up to 48 yards per hour, ideal for a wide range of applications. It can handle up to six aggregates and two cements, and produce consistently high quality wet or dry mixes. All materials are weighed with state-of-the-art load cells for accuracy and ease of calibration. Load cells are matched and scaled to resist water and dust, and have a weighing accuracy of aggregates within +/- 2 percent and cement/water to within +/-1 percent of the batch size. The modular plant's flexible design allows for customization and expansion as needed. There are four different mixers available to match production rates. Customers can run the aggregate conveyor from 1 to 45 degrees, in line or at a right angle, to save space. Bins can be placed underground, at grade or above grade. A unique "ribbon blending" method of charging materials into the mixer in the proper sequence provides cycle times as fast as 2-1/2 minutes. It also ensures a homogeneous mix, with each particle coated with cement paste for maximum strength. The Skid Mount batch plant features a wide variety of mixers and control options, and can economically tackle production rates from just a few yards of concrete per hour to projects requiring 25 yards per hour. Additionally, the plant is pre-wired and pre-plumbed allowing for quick and easy installation; set-up time from delivery to operation is as little as three days. The plant comes with two or three aggregate storage bins (10, 15 or 20 tons each); belt conveyor com- plete with 230/460 volt electric drive motor; cement weigh batcher split into one or two equal compartments; water system with water meter; and, company's Model E-150 Batch Control System. Flexible and affordable, the Skid Mount Batch Plant will keep productivity on the move. — Mixer Systems Inc., Pewaukee, Wis., 800/75-MIXER; Mixer Systems
