CEI tracks cement savings in four-bin, aggregate-blending plant specimens


Demonstrations of the latest Fusion Hybrid-Process Ready Mix Plant, which is equipped with four aggregate bins and features performance-boosting design changes from the original model, reveal cement-optimizing potential. CEI Enterprises credits the Fusion series’ precision aggregate blending—applied to ready mixed concrete and mimicking methods proven in asphalt pavement mix production—with a 17 percent cement savings versus standard methods. Aggregate blending, coupled with established cement and water metering, represents a hybrid process that yields a matrix with fewer voids than concrete produced through conventional aggregate batching and transfer, CEI engineers contend.
