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 having the diesel engine mounted right on the plant is still the most desirable scenario.  However, with more and more of our plants being utilized primarily as a stationary concrete batching plant, we also offer a 100HP electric motor drive in lieu of the diesel engine.  It comes with the starter panel factory pre-wired and simply needs to be plugged into 3-phase 440/480 Voltage.  For safety, we still utilize 12 VDC for nearly all functions and simply step the voltage down right at the electric motor.  Furthermore, in order to increase efficiency, we can provide a motor starter right at the batch house, so when the plant is going to sit for a few minutes, the operator can simply shut off the motor.  Since Cemco utilizes a load sensing hydraulic system, the pump (i.e. the electric motor) does not have to start under load.

If a customer wants the ability to switch between the diesel drive and the electric motor, we have designed a stand-alone diesel and electric power pack.  This means that your plant can be configured with either the electric motor or the diesel engine on your plant and the alternative power pack would be built onto a skid.  All hydraulic connections can be quickly connected from either source and the user simply needs to open or close a few ball valves depending on the drive source.  With two independent drive sources, it greatly reduces the chance for downtime.

Saving you money in 2 big ways.

The Model 340 Portable Concrete Paving Package saving you 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 whole setup with feeder conveyors and everything can be setup in ½ day with two men and some basic tools.  Everything is pre-wired and pre-plumbed, and all electrical and hydraulic connections are of the quick connect type and are clearly labeled.

Second, and more discrete, Cemco’s equipment saves money on the big maintenance.   Our Central Mix drum is essentially the shaft in a large ball bearing; therefore, there is not a track and rollers like every other mixer.  This means that the load is distributed around our drum instead of focused on the two drive points like other drums.  With a more even load distribution, we do not run into drum cracking problems.  We do not have severe maintenance requirements on our drum rotation system.  The user simply needs to grease the bearing periodically and change the oil on our motor gear boxes.

What People are saying about Cemco

Mike Lawson
Jonel Engineering

Over the fifty years we’ve done plant controls, we have experienced plenty of different plant styles and configurations. We have been very impressed with Cemco equipment from the aspect of their portability and their accuracy. In the last two years we have installed our equipment alongside their plants in extremely remote areas, which is a testament to the convenience of setup and ease of operation using a completely self contained, self erecting batch plant.

You’re literally going from zero production to batching 180 cu yards/hour in matter of hours. Their decumm style batching is tremendously accurate and fast. Above all they’re a tremendous family run operation and are a great bunch of people to work with.

If turnkey portability and consistent throughput is what you’re looking for, than look no further than Cemco.
