Ready Mix Concrete
⦁ Best solution for Mass Concreting.
⦁ Concreting in congested areas is possible through RMC.
⦁ In the basement and raft below ground level, specialized concrete can be provided through RMC.
⦁ RCC members with heavy and congested reinforcement can be concreted through RMC.
Concrete that is provided ready to use is known as ready mixed concrete (RMC).
RMC is described by the American Concrete Institute’s Committee 116R-90 as: “Concrete that is manufactured for delivery to a purchaser in a plastic and unhardened form”.
RMC is described as “Concrete mixed in a stationary mixer in a central batching and mixing plant or in a truck-mixer and given in fresh condition to the purchaser either at the site or into the purchaser’s vehicles” by Indian Standard Specification IS 4926:2003.
India has a long history of producing concrete on-site using rudimentary tools and a big labor force. An innovative technique, ready mixed concrete uses a lot of automation and mechanization. A typical RMC facility includes weigh batchers for weighing out the various components of concrete, silos and bins for storing cement and aggregates, high efficiency mixers for thoroughly mixing the ingredients, and a computerized system for managing the entire production process. The finished concrete is of a substantially higher caliber than site-mixed concrete.
