Tarmac utilises ready-mixed concrete technology to boost site productivity

In the UK, Tarmac has installed software across its ready-mix fleet in a bid to boost site productivity and resource efficiency.

The company says the Tarmac Assure System collects data to measure, manage and record concrete quality at the plant, in transit and on site. Water is automatically added to ensure the material reaches its target consistency or ‘slump’.

The technology communicates and storesa permenant record of each load’s quality, helping to provide greater transparency, optimise operations and further improve mix designs.

According to Tarmac, the solution reduces programme times by ensuring concrete is ready to discharge as soon as a delivery truck arrives.

Jeremy Greenwood, managing director for Tarmac’s national commercial construction solutions business, says: “Tarmac Assure provides total visibility of the concrete we produce and deliver from plant to site, meaning we are consistently providing even greater accuracy, product quality and reliability for our customers.

“The system prevents operators from adding uncontrolled and unrecorded amounts of water to ready-mixed concrete, which can lead to inferior product quality and rejected loads, while the data it generates is helping us to better understand our customers’ needs and requirements.  By improving processes from real-time monitoring through to slump control, we are ensuring that the products we are producing are of the highest-quality every time.”

Customers can monitor the live status of their deliveries with Tarmac Assure by logging into a dedicated mobile app, which uses GPS technology to track the precise locations of delivery vehicles. The software also provides details of each delivery, mix temperature, and information about water and admix additions.
