Due to the large number of commercial and residential real estate projects going on in Edmonton and the government’s initiative towards infrastructure development, ready-mix concrete is a material that is greatly in demand in the Edmonton construction and real estate sector. Today an increasing number of real estate projects prefer ready-mixed concrete because of the quality, consistency, and ease with ready mixed concrete can be delivered.
Ready-mix concrete is increasingly used for commercial and residential projects by professional companies. This concrete is also witnessing steady growth in the retail sector because it is also used for domestic construction purposes. If ready mix concrete is required by the construction companies or real estate sector in Edmonton, then All Ready Mix will be their ideal partner serving them all construction solutions.
Ready mix concrete is a type of concrete manufactured in a factory or batching plant according to a given set of instructions of the contractor and then delivered to the work site through a truck mounted with transit mixers. It is delivered to the construction site in a freshly mixed plastic or unhardened state. Ready mix concrete is a mixture of cement, water, and aggregates comprising sand and gravel or crushed stone that are mixed according to the required standard specifications. Earlier in construction sites, all these materials were procured separately and mixed in a specific proportion at the worksite to prepare concrete. The ready-mix concrete is manufactured under controlled operations and transported at worksites with the help of sophisticated equipment.
Three types of ready-mix concrete are available in Edmonton which basically varies on the mixing of the various ingredients.
In this type of ready-mix concrete all the basic ingredients along with water are directly charged into the truck mixer drum. During the loading of all the materials, the mixer drum is rotated fast at charging speed, and then later on it is rotated at a normal agitating speed. Three variations are possible in this type of ready-mix concrete that includes concrete mixed at the job site, concrete mixed in transit, and concrete mixed in the yard.
This type of ready-mix concrete is prepared by partially mixing the concrete in the plant mixer and the remaining mixing is done in the truck mixer drum during the transit time. The mixing amount in transit depends upon the amount of mixing done in the plant mixer. Tests are conducted to determine the mixing extent in the drum mixer.
This type of ready mix concrete is prepared in the central batching plant where the concrete is thoroughly mixed before transferring them into a truck mixer. The plant may sometime be referred to as a pre-mix plant or wet batch. The truck mixer serves only as an agitator while transporting the concrete and when the workability requirement is low, non-agitating units may also be used.
