Keeping your pugmill looking like new? The best start to the new construction season.

Recently I was in Quebec to visit two Aran mobile plants owned by Cement Quebec.  Two ASR250X machines, each with three aggregate feed hoppers capable of producing 400tph of mixed product.  The machines are operated and maintained by les Carriers St Dominique.

This was a great opportunity to meet with both companies and hear about the interesting RCC work being carried out in Canada.  From small to large projects, these machines solely mix Roller Compacted Concrete.  These guys really know how to build strong and robust pavements in a cost and time efficient way.

Winter time in Canada is the perfect time to maintain the machines ahead of the next construction season.  These two machines are about 25 years old, not that you can tell.  A new coat of paint and comprehensive mechanical maintenance, these machines are almost as good as new.  They perform a new also!  Cement feed accuracy at 0.0125% over 800 tons.  When you are consuming cement at 54 tph, accuracy like this ensures material costs are well contained.

If you’d like to hear some more about the innovations Cement Quebec are employing towards the development of Paver Compacted Concrete ( or RCC), let me know.

You would like to learn more about how to achieve excellent control on your cement feed rates?  Get in touch and I’ll tell you more.  shane-d@aranaus.com
