Batching Solutions

With four manufacturing facilities in Chennai, Schwing Stetter India has the biggest manufacturing facility for batching plants in South Asia.

The increased demand for ready-mix concrete and the growing need for a range of batching plants to choose from can both be met by Schwing Stetter India, one of the pioneers in the field of manufacturing ready-mix concreting equipments in India. Schwing is the leader in the manufacturing of products related to production, placing and transit of concrete for the construction industry that includes batching plants, concrete pumps, and transit mixers.

Schwing Stetter India manufactures a wide range of batching plants that can be broadly classified with respect to their design, batch size, material storage (aggregate storage), and mixer technology. The company analyses each customer´s requirement and guides the customer to opt for that batching plant which would suffice his needs of concreting. There are four different types of batching plants that are manufactured by Schwing Stetter India, which include wheel-trailer/truck mounted, compact plants, mobile plants, and horizontal plants.

Wheel-trailer/truck-mounted: The on-wheels concept has been introduced by Schwing Stetter India, keeping in mind the easy transportability of the batching plant between sites. This design is available in the 18 cu m segment, which is also known as the ´CP18 on wheels´ which can be a trailer or a truck-mounted batching plant.

Compact plants: The compact plants are design houses which include the Model CP30 (30 cu m productivity rate) and CP45 (45 cu m productivity rate). These plants are available in star, compartment and in-line silo configurations.

Mobile plants: The mobile plants are known for their easy assembly and erection at the site like the M1, M1.25, M2.25, and M2.5. Wherever construction sites have to be supplied for any length of time with larger quantities of high-quality concrete, mobile mixing plants from Schwing Stetter India are ideal. It does not matter whether they are used for the construction of traffic routes, dams, landfills or airports, the M series plants have been designed to handle the task. They can be quickly moved, transported on low-bed semi-trailers and quickly set up again, thanks to the fully installed, pre-assembled compact units. The current development status of the mobile plant benefits from our vast experience worldwide.

Horizontal plants: Stetter horizontal concrete mixing plants H1N, H1.25N, H2N, H3N, H4N, H5 and H6 incorporate the experience of over 49 years in mixing plant technology. Depending on the requirements, the HN-type series is equipped with a pan mixer or a twin-shaft mixer. While designing the plant, high importance was attached to the access, thereby facilitating maintenance. In addition, the generously dimensioned space allows this plant to be offered in a wide variety which can be taken from a modular system. H5 and H6 plants are for mass requirements and can be suited to individual´s demands by adapting the design accordingly. Plants made by Schwing Stetter India have an output varying between 18-240 cu m per hour.

Aggregate storage
Schwing Stetter batching plants store aggregates in three different ways, compartment, in-line silo, star/partition walls. With respect to the availability of space on the site, the customer can choose the storage option. Schwing Stetter India offers compartment-type storage in the entire compact and mobile plants and the star type storage is available in the 30 cu m segment. The inline silo/bin storage is available in selected models of compact plants and in all models of horizontal plants.

Mixer technology
The objective of any concrete production is a homogenous mix of concrete, in the absence of which a series of problems will be faced by the end users of concrete. There are two mixer technologies which help achieve this homogeneity, which are pan mixer and twin-shaft mixer. The turbo pan mixer used by Schwing Stetter India is famous for the mixing quality, thanks to its gearbox-driven arms while the twin-shaft mixer is preferred wherever vast quantities of concrete are to be produced.

It is also important to understand that all these plants are operated using control systems which range from semi-automatic (MCI35) to fully automatic (MCI360). The state-of-the-art technology of the batching plants and their reliable quality have helped Schwing Stetter India earn its place as the leader in the ready-mix concrete equipment industry.

Applications
From residential, roads, dams, bridges, canals to nuclear projects, Schwing Stetter India equipment have widespread applications and are called the first and the best choice of the RMC industry. These equipment have played a vital role in the fabrication of precast barriers for metro rail and airport projects across the country. Schwing Stetter India batching plants also produce temperature-controlled concrete for nuclear power plant applications.

Schwing Stetter India has proved its mettle among all odds by making and holding records in the industry. The company holds the all India record for maximum pavement quality production in one day of 5,050 cu m of concrete at Dhancore where the Yamuna Expressway is under construction. Schwing Stetter India also clinched the record in dam concrete production with 6,020 cu m of concrete at Subhansri.
