Page 49 of 60 October 2018 • 47 Skako Concrete Company specializes in turnkey design, supply, installation, and main- tenance management services of complete plants for all segments of the concrete industry. Plant solutions include row silo, high silo (tower), and jobsite plants. The row silo plants feature an inlet box on the silo deck that prevents contanimation of materials; walls that are trapezoidal profiles and are easy to assemble; and a wide range of supplementary equipment, such as heating or shock blasters for the silo cone. Skako high silo or tower plants are an eco-friendly choice with optimal utilization of the resources. The plants feature a large integrated platform that makes cleaning easy and allows the installation of both counter-current mixers and twin-shaft mixers. The Mastermix modular plants comprise of four to eight compartments with up to five screw entrances, and has a capacity of up to 3,000 liters per batch. The range is designed for large jobsites and can be adapted to suit any assignment. — Skako Concrete Inc., San Diego, 858/271-7341; Stephens Mfg. Since 1957, company has custom built precast/ prestress and block equipment. Company offers full line of portable and fixed plants with varying capacities, and can build a plant to fit in an existing building or around existing equipment. Mixers can be mounted on independent mixer support frames or beneath cement silos. Several different styles of silos are available, including round, rectangular, and multiple compartment. Each plant is designed for seismic requirements. Company's Clydesdale skid- based concrete batch plant is highly portable and can be installed with a standard loader and gin pole in combination with a hydraulic self-erect system. Accumulative and decumulative configurations are available. The Falcon is Stephens' largest portable plant. The standard frame (in seismic zone 1) can support two 1,000 BBL silos and up to 200 tons of aggregate. The plant is standard with 15-hp (240 gallon) compressor, 3-in. water meter and 30-in. transfer conveyor. — Stephens Mfg., Tompkinsville, Ky., 877/626-0200; Voeller Mixers Over 40 years' experience in the manufactured concrete industry, coupled with a desire to continue the Voeller tradition of meeting customers' needs, led to the development of the V-Batch line of equipment. The flexibility of design precisely meets the needs of each individual customer. Recently, company built a two-mixer batch plant for Clark Pacific's Woodland, Ca., operation that included four 65-ton capacity cement silos and two sets of four 35-ton capacity aggregate storage bins. Each bin is on load cells for a "loss in weight," fast and accurate aggregate weighing system. Aggregate bins are mounted in shared frame structures, which help reduce infrastructure requirements and are pre-wired to minimize on-site electrical work for installation. Elevated, drive-under mixer decks were installed for maximum productivity. Hydronix moisture probes in the aggregate bins as well as each mixer provide automatic moisture compensation calculation allowing for repeatable, quality SCC concrete production. — Voeller Mixers Inc., Port Washington, Wis., 262/284-3114; www.
