Batching Plant Capacity Calculation

Writer:Admin   Time:24/03/21

    Batching plant capacity calculation involves a number of factors, including the volume of concrete mixer machine, the material charging method, model, the working hours and the variety of concrete. The capacity of concrete batching plant is usually closely related to the capacity of the concrete mixer it uses. The capacity of the concrete mixer determines the amount of concrete to be mixed at a time. For example, if a concrete mixer has a capacity of 2 cubic meters, it can theoretically mix 2 cubic meters of concrete at a time. By combining the capacity of the concrete mixer and the mixing frequency (i.e., the number of mixes per hour), the hourly output of the mixing plant can be roughly estimated to be 120m3/h.

    The model of concrete batching plant is named according to its discharge size, for example, HZS120 means 120 cubic meters per hour. However, it should be noted that there is a certain difference between the model number of the concrete batching plant and the actual production capacity. For example, the theoretical production capacity of HZS25 concrete batching plant is 25 cubic meters per hour, but the actual production capacity may only be 15-20 cubic meters per hour.

    When calculating the production capacity of a concrete batching plant, it is usually necessary to consider its working hours. For example, a 60m3/h concrete batching plant, its main machine can mix the concrete production of about 1cubc meter at a time, and the mixing time is 60 seconds. Its theoretical output value per hour is 60 cubic meters of concrete, but the actual production value may only be about 48 cubic meters. Therefore, if you calculate its production for 9 hours, the theoretical value is 540 cubic meters of concrete, but the actual value may be lower.

    In addition, different varieties of concrete raw materials have different ratios, so the output of the same concrete batching plant equipment will be different when producing different varieties of concrete. At the same time, the smoothness of the logistics in the station area will also affect the output of the concrete batching plant. If gravel trucks and concrete mixer trucks enter and exit at the same gate and there is poor logistics, it will affect the operation efficiency of the whole station, thus affecting the output.

    To summarize, the batching plant capacity calculation is a complex process that needs to consider several factors. In practice, it is usually calculated by combining the weight method and the volume method, and taking into account a number of factors, such as equipment type, actual production, working time, concrete variety, station logistics and sales market, etc., in order to arrive at a more accurate production estimate.
