Spray-Applied Concrete / Shotcrete in Silos
Spray Applied Concrete (sometimes referred to as Shotcrete) is concrete pneumatically projected onto a surface at high velocity. It is typically blown through a hand-held nozzle, after all the ingredients are mixed to project specifications. CEMEX has a unique design process for spray applied concrete using a silo solution that minimises rebound and is compliant to the industry specifications.
Spray Applied Concrete
✓ Silo Solution
✓ Minimised Rebound
✓ Guaranteed mix design
✓ Sustainable Logistics
✓ Electronic Stock Monitoring
✓ No Part Loads
CEMEX Spray applied concrete is designed by blending separately controlled aggregate sources to produce a product with an ideal grading curve to minimize rebound. All the raw materials are delivered into a batch weighed process complete with Cement (CEM I), microsilica, steel fibres and special admixtures – the result is a very high grade lining concrete.
FEATURES & BENEFITS:
DSM solution for spray applied concrete / shotcrete - all materials including admixtures and steel fibres contained in the silo
Giga-mixer units provided as part of the solution suitable for mix with outputs of up to 10.0 m3 per hour
Water content calibration calculated based on material flows/specification per site
Remote silo monitoring of materials linked to customer PC by web based application
ISOVEYOR container logistic solution for road and rail from manufacturing plant in Doveholes in Derbyshire
Logistics centre in East London for deliveries of final product
Technical support by CEMEX and NORMET
