An ELKOMIX-135 plant recently purchased by a major Jordanian ready-mixed concrete producer
One of Jordan’s largest ready-mix concrete producers has increased its production capacity with three more ELKON
concrete batching plant. The latest purchases by the company are said to have followed its successful use over several years of a second-hand ELKON plant.
The purchasing company’s new plant are being put to work on three separate production sites. One plant is working within a confined 15m² x 30m² space at the company’s central concrete production facility in Amman. Following detailed analysis by ELKON engineers and meetings with company officials, an ELKOMIX-200 concrete batching plant, including two 150tonne capacity cement silos and an aggregate storage bunker featuring four 30m³ compartments and a concrete ramp, is said to be working well despite the severe onsite space restrictions.
A new ELKOMIX-135 stationary concrete batching plant, in which the aggregates can be loaded without a ramp, is working next to an established company batching plant in the Marka region, near Amman. Given the truck-mixer approaching difficulties onsite, an ELKON Twinshaft Mixer is being used. This mean that while the truck mixer is being filled from one discharge outlet, another truck mixer can approach the other outlet, allowing for uninterrupted serial production.
The ELKON customer’s third site is located near Jordan’s Syrian border, where mobility is more important. Here, a new ELKOMIX-135 Quick Master compact concrete batching plant, combining the advantages of mobile concrete batching with the flexibility of stationary concrete batching, is being put to work.
