Ajax batching plants for precast industry


With increasing demand for construction of buildings and infrastructures, there is a vast need for new technologies to be implemented in construction to make it more sustainable, economical and also to complete in a shorter time span.

With increased cost of building construction, maintenance and lifecycle issues the world is moving towards approach of new ways of construction. Conventional methods of construction which involves major production of concrete at site has now been replaced with pre-cast technology where the requirement for setting up a site, preparing form-works for concrete pour and curing of structures are cut down to a major extent.

Being a concrete solution provider, Ajax Fiori always forecasted the needs and demands of its customers. With increasing demand in pre-cast production, the company has geared up its products to feed the requirement. The products have evolved over a period of time based on the inputs from customers.

Precast concrete technology is widely used in government projects for infrastructural development (flyovers, metro, bridges). Private projects which includes residential and commercial constructions are also slowly moving towards precast technology as they are efficient, durable and economical and also cuts down the span of completion of projects. Ajax-Fiori, having been associated with concreting industry for last 25 years has also been a part in this transformation and will continue to serve the Industry with its unique products for now and for the years to come.

Another critical factor the precast industry should consider is the mixing quality of the concrete. Over two decades, Ajax Fiori provides planetary mixers for precast application which is considered superior over conventional turbo mixer.
In planetary mixer, the mixing flow is highly efficient due to integrated action of central stars combined with different peripheral scrapers, which is best suited for pre-cast structures of concrete with aggregate sizes less than 40mm.

IRB batching plant
The Inline Reduced Bin (IRB Series) batching plant of Ajax Fiori is designed for sites that require continuous production of concrete and also where the loading of aggregates cannot be done from both the sides of the bins due to site constraints.

These batching plants come with four to six bins for aggregates of different sizes as the continuous production of concrete calls for storage of raw materials. The unique feature of this plant is that the aggregates are weighed in a conveyor rather than the skip unlike other plants, thereby reducing the cycle time and also water and cement batching is done in parallel to reduce cycle time and optimise productivity.

A waiting hopper is provided which will help in reducing the cycle time as the aggregates for the next subsequent cycle will be weighed and discharged to the hopper while the aggregates are being mixed in the mixer, thereby providing a constant supply of concrete to cast them in the mold.

CRB batching plant
The Compact Reduced Bin Batching Plant (CRB) of 30 cu.m/hr. capacity is designed to fulfil the need of its customer in the RMC & infrastructure segments. In today’s competitive world, capital & operational cost plays a vital role in the success of the business.

• The CRB 30 eliminates the need of belt conveyor for handling aggregates thereby reducing the capital cost by 30 per cent compared to other similar plants available in the market.
• Aggregate weighing system is independent of skip transfer system, thereby reducing the cycle time and increasing productivity.
• The entire plant can be transported in a single trailer thereby reducing transportation cost compared to other plants.
• Plug and Play electrical system, hence fast erection at site.
• Compact layout, hence minimal space required.
• Minimal concrete foundation required for erection.

Skid foundation also available as optional which eliminates the need of a foundation.
