How much does a concrete batch plant cost?

How much does a concrete batch plant cost? With the development of the concrete market now, more and more batch plants are needed. But many customers do not know how much does a concrete batch plant cost. The investment in a concrete batching plant is really laborious and costly. The procedures required vary from region to region, as well as the type of equipment and footprint. What do you need, in the end, where to invest the money, then read this article!


How much does a small concrete batch plant cost?

It depends on the size of the batching plant you need, and the configuration. From hzs25 to hzs60 all belong to the small batch plant. Small concrete batching plants are simple in configuration, easy to operate, easy to move, occupy a relatively small area, and of course, have a small output. However, small concrete batching plants cost less in the first stage and are less risky. If the budget is not sufficient, you can give priority to the small concrete batching plant.

Small concrete batch plants cost about $30,000 – $70,000. It depends on what configuration you need.

How much does a concrete batch plant cost?

How much does a medium or large concrete batch plant cost?

From hzs75 to hzs180 and hzs240 are all large-scale concrete batch plants. To build a large-scale concrete batch plant we need to have financial capital. It also needs to spend on industrial plants, batching plant machinery and equipment, tanker trucks, workers’ salaries, and so on.

Medium or large concrete batch plants cost about $70,000 – $300,000. It depends on what configuration you need.

Whether we choose a small or medium or large concrete batch plant, we have to compare the products. Price is not the deciding factor. We need to know if the equipment will be able to keep up with our demand later. The quality of the equipment and after-sales service is what we pay more attention to. Very simply, we want to know the specific price of the equipment, we need to clarify the following five points.

① Equipment model.

② Cost of mixing plant (such as transportation equipment, substation equipment, laboratory equipment), etc.

③ Labor cost (sales staff, workers, logistics, transportation staff), etc.

④ Site floor space cost (we need a place to install the equipment we purchase, the larger the equipment, the larger the floor space).

⑤ Other costs (such as office building, workshop, common items), etc.

Considering these points, and then according to the local consumption level, you probably know how much you need to invest.

The preparation work before building a concrete batching plant

Determination of the size of the batching plant

Before determining the investment size, it is logical to do a good job of market research. 

Suppose it is for internal use in the construction sector. In that case, the production capacity of the purchased mixing plant should be decided according to the construction capacity and the amount of commercial concrete.

If it is used as a commercial concrete mixing plant, the size of the commercial concrete mixing plant should be decided based on the economic development of the region, the expected demand for commercial concrete in the market of the jurisdiction, and the investment capacity.

Selection of batching plant site

When choosing the plant site, you should ensure that the site is close to the stone quarry and sand plant, that the water source is sufficient, and that it is far from residential areas, etc.

Determine the reasonable equipment configuration

The choice of aggregate supply method: it is better to use loader to supply the material. If the mixing plant is used for road construction (short duration, frequent moving and relocation), the mixing plant with quick-loading and modular structure should be used.

② choice of aggregate conveying belt machine: such as the site is wide, should give priority to small inclination (18 °) flat belt machine conveying method (in order to reduce equipment procurement costs, you can also choose to lift the hopper method); if the site area is restricted, you can consider a large inclination (generally 40 ° ~ 50 °) baffle belt machine (using additional belt structure, can reach 90 °). However, in the wet environment of sand and gravel, the large inclination angle baffle belt machine has the disadvantage of sticky sand, and the phenomenon of sand falling under the belt is more serious when the belt returns, and the utilization coefficient of sand should be considered for commercial concrete proportioning.

③ Aggregate batching machine (scale) selection.

A complete commercial concrete mixing plant aggregate scale for the cumulative measurement of 1 scale, separate measurement for 2 to 4 scales. In order to ensure that each aggregate has sufficient storage capacity, each aggregate can be designed and made into 2 scales batching; if the construction requirements are low, choose 2 kinds of aggregate cumulative measurement of the batching machine;

if the project has special requirements, it must choose 3 or 4 kinds of aggregate scales cumulative measurement of the batching machine, or even each aggregate individually measured batching machine; other scales can be selected according to the needs to determine the configuration of cement scales, fly ash scales, Powder admixture scale (by the child spiral machine feeding), water scale and liquid admixture scale (1 to 2), etc.

④Detecting instruments: such as with sand water content detector, through the microcomputer control, according to the different moisture content of sand, can realize the automatic adjustment of online water addition. The application of slump detector can effectively observe the homogeneity of commercial concrete. Customers can choose a reasonable configuration according to their needs and make provisions in the contract.

Inspection of manufacturers

The customer should examine the general situation (production scale, production capacity, product quality level and service quality, etc.) of several key manufacturers. From the production process to examine the manufacturer’s ability to ensure the quality system. On-site inspection of the prototype that has been put into use, to listen to the views of the use of units, to understand the actual quality level of the equipment, the selection of supporting parts, etc.
