Continuous mixing

Continuous mixing

Our computerised frameworks can operate as a regular batch Plant or as a Continuous Mixing Plant producing:

  • Ready-mix concrete
  • Precast Concrete
  • Dry Cast
  • Roller Compacted Concrete (RCC)
  • Self-Compacting Concrete (SCC)
  • Fiber Reinforced Concrete
  • Lightweight Concrete
  • Backfilling
  • Inertization
  • Dam Construction
  • Road Paving
  • Industrial Floors
  • Architectural Precast
  • Waste Treatment
  • Foundries
  • Glass Industry
  • Mine Industry (muds treatment, backfilling)
  • Soil Stabilization
  • Fertilizers

Changing products or blends is fast and simple with our Automated 30 second Feeder test calibration.

Key Features on our Blending Plant

  • Goldridge’s state of the art Blending Plant Bins are all on scales to allow automated control of product feeding, this ensure that we get a consistent product.
  • All products are first ribbon layered on the belt and then mixed in a 500 ton/hour Sicoma Pug Mill Mixer for consistent mix.
  • If product sticks or hangs the automation program will correct the speed so that the actual rate follows the target rate, if the deviation of the actual and target rate reaches a set percentage the plant will automatically shut down in an alarm mode because it will maintain the correct lost in weight. Without scales on a mixing plant you would never know if you are feeding properly until you would see that it isn’t flowing. The Fine material has a very inconsistent flow characteristic because its sticks and hangs very easily in a feeder bin if you have a slight change in moisture.
  • Our feeders are controlled by a VFD (Variable Frequency Drive) that will automatically change speed to maintain a consistent feed based upon the recipe.
  • Our plant has vibrators that are controlled based on the weight in the bin. If bin is full the vibrators come on more frequently.
  • Our plant will show history on actual and target product rate on each feeder bin.
  • Automation program has a database that stores all information. Recipe, Inventory, Batch History, Batch Report, Daily Report, Truck Report

With our Innovative technology we are able to save time and money on costly ingredients not being measured correctly.

By what method can Mixing Technology not just give unmatched quality at focused costs to you, yet in addition dispose of a significant number of the issues that have been tormenting the Ready Mix Industriy business for over 50 years, for example,

  • Dough-Balls (or Cement-Balls)
  • Full or incomplete lapse of burdens
  • The Costly dismissal of burdens
  • Poor Quality
  • Inconsistent Slump
  • Retempering With Water
  • Pre-cast from drums
  • Batching mistakes

Blending Technology

The Mixing Technology utilized by Goldridge Sand & Gravel is also used Industries served include: Aggregates, Food, Plastics, Chemical, Life Science, Pharmaceutical and Mining

So you get the advantage of:

  • NO MORE lapse of burdens by any stretch of the imagination
  • NO MORE dismissal of burdens
  • NO MORE Inconsistent Slump
  • NO MORE Batching mistakes
  • NO MORE Dough-Balls (or Cement-Balls)
  • NO MORE Retempering With Water (Undesirable by industry and debilitated by CSA A23.1)
  • NO MORE Poor Quality
  • NO MORE Pre-thrown from drums
