Concrete equipment brings big dividend

In January 2015 US-based CEI Enterprises, an Astec Industries company, marked the first anniversary since the start of its engineering, manufacturing and marketing of a full new line of concrete production plants.

The new line includes innovative technologies originally introduced by Astec, and have been further developed by engineers at CEI Enterprises. Now, CEI is fielding two new products: the TSC Twin-Shaft Continuous Blending plant and the novel TSB Mobile RCC Batch Mixer.

CEI senior engineer Kevin Wentland describes the TSC plant as a “high volume continuous concrete mixing plant that can be utilised to produce cement-treated base, zero slump RCC and pervious low slump and high slump concrete materials, all from a single plant.”

Jim Johnson, regional sales manager for CEI, added: “The TSC plant is a design unique to the industry. It brings state-of-the-art mechanical tools necessary to produce concrete, of all types, with a consistency and a quality level far surpassing the traditional methods.”

Of the market reaction to the new CEI Enterprises concrete plant range, Johnson said: “We have seen a considerable amount of interest in the TSC plant, due to its versatility and its high-quality, high-precision, and high-volume production capabilities.

“We have also received substantial interest from ready-mix producers in our new TSB batch mixer, because it easily expands their production capabilities to include RCC.”

The TSB Mobile RCC Batch Mixer allows a traditional ready-mix batch plant to produce RCC by simply incorporating this new mixer into the existing plant’s workflow.

Wentland said: “The TSB provides existing ready-mix plants with a means to make RCC through the use of a portable twin shaft batch mixer placed under the existing concrete plant with a set-up time of less than 30 minutes.

This flexibility of material supply greatly expands the capabilities for smaller projects using RCC. For example, busy intersections could be closed after Friday traffic rush and reopened on Monday morning prior to the start of the morning rush.”
