46 • October 2018 MCT Group Company has developed special solutions, which can be efficiently applied to precast producers to ensure the best quality and accuracy in concrete production. These projects, already replicated three times for the same customer, involves the design, manufacturing and installation of batching plants (horizontal type) with five or six aggregates bins and with or without automatic aggregates loading system by shuttle conveyor (or direct feed by shovel loader). The concrete is batched by no. 2 planetary mixers type 3.000/2.000 and has undergone a series of tests to ensure it meets the required stan- dards for strength and durability. Very restricted tolerances (lower than 1 percent on all dosed components) assure success on the most severe tests for mix quality and performance, including fire testing. The plants also include integrated cladding designed and installed by MCT, as well as the in-house developed, automatic control system MCT CompuNet. — MCT Group Inc., Reno, Nev., 775/313-0708; www. Vince Hagan Co. Not all precast or prestressed concrete batch plants are created equal, company engineers contend: Typically they are designed to accommodate older existing equipment and surroundings and certainly by no means designed for mobility and rapid installation. However, company notes that it offers a couple models— the LP (Low Profile) and the HT (Haganator)—that are either fully mobile or semi-mobile. These two batch plants can be configured to accommodate high- strength mix designs, reduce the number of shipment loads to the job site, and rapidly installed and in operation in three to six days. The HSM Series Hagan stationary modular dry batch plant is designed for fast set-up and high production with a minimum of delivery and erection costs. By designing the plant with a transportable patented truss design, company is able to pre-wire, pre-plumb water and air systems on the truss frame. The HSM plant provides between 100 to 220 cubic yards per hour. The LPM Series stationary modular plant has a full range of plant sizes from 100 to 225 cubic yards per hour. Both series featues aggregate bins that can be fed by choice of radial stacker, fixed incline feed conveyor with turn head, or individual conveyors. Vince Hagan concrete batch plants and equipment are manufactured using the heaviest structures and plate steel to ensure durabil- ity, reliability and longevity. — Vince Hagan Co., Dallas, 800/354-3238; www.
