76 • February 2017 Advanced Concrete Technologies, Inc. enters 2017 with a new line of affordable batch plants equal to a wide range of applications. The small footprint CentroMix models arrive on site pre- wired, pre-plumbed and factory tested for quick and easy installation—requiring merely a single electric, water and air connection to be up and running. "This compact, batching/mixing plant allows a small precast producer to easily begin making their own professional grade concrete," says ACT's Max Hoene. "And once it's running, look out. The plant allows producers to achieve super-fast batch cycles for efficient, consis- tent, quality concrete production." The CentroMix design suits a variety of plant types, including conventional and archi- tectural precast plus dry cast production. Its portability also suits onsite concrete produc- tion. The CentroMix is available in a range of flexible layout options and expandable as a producer grows. ACT offers the plant in two sizes: ½-yd. or 1-yd. output with high performance planetary CPM Wiggert Mixer, which features large access doors with standard safety locks and premi- um efficient drive for quiet operation. Among other key plant features: • Cumulative aggregate weighing system provides precision batching for up to four aggre- gates; • Aggregate bins can be configured for charging by a front-end loader, or as forklift-trans- ferred exchangeable bins for specialty aggregates; • Optional automatic Hydrotester moisture correction for each aggregate bin; • Precision weigh batcher handles up to three cementitious materials; • Control for up to four admixtures, with factory-mounted mixer inlets available; • Totally enclosed mixer for virtual dust free batching; • Galvanized, perimeter safety guarding; and, • Available skid mount frame to eliminate need for foundation.
