Page 47 of 60 October 2018 • 45 JEL Concrete Plants Unlike traditional accumulative weighing concrete plants, which discharge one mate- rial into a scale at a time, Decumulator plants put each aggregate on its own scale and the materials can be discharged at one time. When properly configured, a high-pro- duction Decumulator can turn out over 150 cubic yards of concrete per hour. Company notes that when using two aggregates, the high-production Decumulator can produce a batch in half the time it would take with an accumulative plant. Lower production Decu- mulator plants are smaller versions intended for budget-conscious operators and smaller markets. They use specially configured aggre- gate bins to hold and weigh more than one aggregate in each hopper while still provid- ing as much as 20 tons of storage for each material. Both high and low production Decu- mulator plants can be configured to discharge materials directly into front or rear discharge mixer trucks. All plant models are available with built-in planetary or twin-shaft mixers, and can be customized. — JEL Manufactur- ing, Milwaukee, Wis., 262/223-3205; www. Simem America The semi-mobile Eagle batching and mixing plant series features four to six horizontal bins, completely pre-wired and pre-plumbed, which can be moved from site to site with standard trucks or stored into con- tainers. Five models are available in the series with production range from 60-180 cubic meters per hour and an aggregate capacity of 65-260 cubic meters. The Eagle series has been refined, improved, and optimized to reduce the common risks associated with new plant installation. Specifi- cally engineered and manufactured to meet high performance outputs, Eagle plants answer the speed to market demands of an intensifying competi- tive landscape with reduced assembly design. — Simem America Corp., San Antonio, Texas, 800/729-0906; www.
