Cemco’s Model 340 Portable Concrete Paving Package

Cemco’s Model 340 Portable Concrete Paving Package (http://cemcoinc.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/09/Cemco_340_Portable_PavingPackage.pdf) aims to save concrete producers money in 2 big ways. First, and most obvious, Cemco’s solution saves money every single time you need to do a setup or take down.  The plant, auxiliary silo, and central mixer are all self-erecting with the pull of a handle.  The […]

Decumulative versus Accumulative Weighing

Just so everyone is on the same page, accumulative batchers start empty, then collect material from an overhead storage until a target is met, and then are ready to batch.  A decumulative scale starts full and batches out the target quantity.  Both systems can be extremely accurate; however an accumulative scale must account for free fall material, which can be difficult if the batch size routinely changes. That being said, another differentiating feature of Cemco concrete batch plants is our use of decumulative aggregate batching.  In our decumulative aggregate batchers, each aggregate has its’ own weighed bin which holds approximately 30,000 pounds.  The decumulative system allows for greater portability, because there is no overhead storage which, given the size constraint, would have to be shipped separate from the plant.  Furthermore, the decumulative system does not have to consider free fall material which means the bins accuracy is independent of load size.  Finally, Cemco’s decumulative setup allows for each aggregate to be flow controlled into the truck.  This means that the user can make sure to proportion the batch into the truck greatly reducing necessary mixing time while also improving mix homogeneity and quality.  This cannot be said for similar accumulative batchers or live bottom systems where the computer cannot vary the speed of one aggregate relative to the other to ensure a particular flow distribution into the trucks.  Since the plant accurately controls the flow of each separate material (including cement) the user can truly maximize the truck’s charge capacity.  In total, Cemco’s system improves production and yields a higher quality concrete product than conventional batch plants.  

Cemco Power Units

With the rising cost of diesel and increased regulation on emissions, it makes it increasingly expensive to utilize new diesel power packs.  As such, Cemco offers a few different options for the primary drive system of the plant.  The standard is still a John Deere diesel engine, and we feel that the portability gained from […]
