New Mobile 100S5 concrete plant for Notts Contractors
Utranazz supply Devon-based Notts Contractors with flexible, state-of-the-art wet/dry batching plant
CONCRETE equipment specialists Utranazz have supplied Devon-based Notts Contractors with a new, state-of-the-art concrete batching plant. The Mobile 100S5 wet/dry plant is fitted with five separate aggregate bins and has a maximum output of 100 cubic metres per hour. The highly versatile nature of the plant allows it to either be operated in dry-mode for lean mixes, or wet-mode for screeds and concrete.
Notts Contractors’ existing 40 cubic metres per hour dry-plant was 15 years old and they needed a larger-output plant that would allow them to provide concrete collections and keep up with increased demand for their in-house concrete delivery service. They also wanted a plant that would be flexible enough to allow them to supply traditional and liquid screeds as well as concrete.
The Mobile 100S5 is partially galvanized, to ensure longevity, and is fitted with moisture measurement probes. It has two separate conveyor belts to allow faster batching. One belt weighs the aggregates whilst the other simultaneously feeds the single-shaft mixer, allowing for precise measurement and continual loading whilst batching. The mixer is also fitted with a high-pressure automatic washdown system for easy cleaning and maintenance.
John Andrews, manager of Notts Contractors, said: ‘We wanted to upgrade our existing dry plant to a larger-output wet plant, but we also wanted a plant that would be flexible enough to produce wet and dry mixes and screeds as well as concrete. The Mobile 100S5 was perfect as it met all of our demands and, crucially, was great value for money.’
