Concrete Mix Design
Optimised Concrete Mix Design For More Profit and Strength
Welcome to our concrete mix design page. We can design a large range of concrete including mixes to BS 8500 and EN 206, and as a result you can program your fibo concrete batching plant to produce quality concrete at the press of a button.
Our concrete mix design service can make you more money and allow you to get more strength from your existing resources. The services we can provide are:
Reviewing your existing concrete mix design to ensure you are getting the best out of the material you are currently using.
We do this by visiting your site and taking samples away of your cement, sands and aggregates, before completing verification trials. Once the trial results have been analysed the new design mixes can be developed. The new concrete mix design will optimise your coarse/fine ratio, and cement content, reduce your water/cement ratio and give you a strong, financially sustainable mix.
Batching Plant Optimisation
From many years experience working in laboratories and on concrete batching plant, we can optimise your batching plant to ensure it operates to it’s full capacity. This can only be done by analysing production mixes and tweaking the calibration of the plant. In conclusion it makes sense to work with high calibre people who can make a difference to your business.
We can advise you on various cement replacement mixes. These mixes will reduce you input costs without affecting strength and therefore help you make more profit.
Recycled Concrete Mixes
We can design mixes from recycled concrete and tell you where you can use them in accordance with Euro and British Standard codes. Recycled concrete has some restrictions within the codes.
Recycled Soil Mixes
We have a recycle concrete batching plant that makes concrete from soil. The plant was designed for a project in France where roads where being excavated for utility services. The spoil from the trenches was converted to concrete. Take a look at the video.
Fibre Concrete Mixes
Fibre in concrete is very useful for reducing drying shrinkage and cracking in large volume projects without losing any strength.
