  • Lightweight Concrete Mix Profitable Using Heavyweight Batch Mixer
    A new manufacturing plant producing concrete mixes containing coal combustion byproducts achieved profitability with a mixer producing 100% uniform blends rapidly while preventing product degradation and saving energy.
  • Case Study: Manufacturer and Marketer of Concrete Products Switch to Stretch Wrapping Technology
    , interlocked paving stones, sidewalk blocks, and other such stone- and concrete-based fixtures. The company employs about 40 people at its 17,000-square-foot production plant-the payroll count rises as high as 55 staff during the peak summer hours-to manufacture and ship between 400 and 600 pallet loads
  • Berke on Safety: Concrete Pumps and Booms are Safer by Manufacturer Design
    When a concrete boom collapsed on the job, the contractor was irked at the inconvenience, but grateful no one had been hurt. When the second boom collapsed, he figured it was terrible luck. But when the third boom collapsed, he called me to do an accident investigation. Outside the plant, safety
  • Flooring System Meets Challenges at Vaccine Pilot Plant
    that prevents contaminants from permeating the concrete substrate and ensures a hygienic surface. Thickness is necessary to provide additional protection from the rigors of steam cleaning. Like many other pharmaceutical sites, the Vaccine Pilot Plant has a concrete floor. Since
  • Continuously Mixing One Batch at a Time
    When a concrete and ready-mix producer moved to a new plant, the mixing process was redesigned to include batching with a rotary batch mixer for greater quality control over the ingredient proportions.
  • Power Metering with a DT80 Using WattNode Transducers
    CAS DataLoggers recently provided the power monitoring solution for a large concrete manufacturing plant that needed to monitor power consumption in conjunction with many other electrical parameters to regulate not only energy efficiency but also fluctuations in the local power grid.
  • Visiting Toyota
    By Agnes Shanley, Editor in Chief Last month, I visited a Toyota plant for the first time, the fabled NUMMI plant in Fremont, Calif. The factory has fallen on relatively hard times: production stopped on some lines in December. This is a far cry from the late 1980 's, after James Womack and his MIT
  • Thermographic Monitoring of Refractory Lined Petroleum Refinery Equipment
    . Refractory is a temperature-resistant lining similar to concrete that is used to line refinery equipment that operates at very high temperatures. The refractory lining protects the outer shell of the piping and vessels from the hot gas and catalyst circulating inside the process plant. Failure of refractory
