Lightweight Concrete Production Equipment

To make good consistent lightweight concrete products requires 3 things

 

A good foaming agent

  • since it is the foaming agent that influences most of the key benefits to the finished product (ie. insulation, sound and fire ratings)
  • And helps ensure production/ product consistency

Correct production equipment

  • Lightweight Concrete is not the same as normal weight concrete and without the proper equipment – production consistency and economics are difficult to achieve

Production System

  • Without a production system and a quality control system in place, producing lightweight concrete becomes difficult to control

At K Block, we want our customers to become successful. Therefore, we recognize the above issues and sell either full production packages (all equipment) or just the key equipment. Included with each package is our service package (including mix designs and raw material evaluation).

K Block Technology’s product line consists of finished products, production equipment, raw materials, and services. For more information contact us at:

Lightweight Concrete: Key Production Equipment

1. Foam Generator
While only weighing about 20kg, the foam generator produces a foam made up of air bubbles. It is the foam generator, combined with our foaming agent, that gives the air bubbles their unique properties
 
2. Lightweight Concrete Mixer:
Any lightweight concrete mixer has to fulfill 3 main functions:
  • Since lightweight concrete does not have any coarse aggregate, a lightweight concrete mixer has to be able shear the cement particles in order for the mix to achieve its optimum strength and durability
  • Mix the foam into the slurry quickly and uniformly (note: being made of air, the foam tends to sit on the top of the mix unless the mixer “works properly”)
  • Produce a uniform lightweight concrete weight

K Block Lightweight mixers perform all three above functions and more

K Block Lightweight Concrete equipment has been used, by us and our customers, for more than 15 years in the market. And combined with K Block Foaming Agent, lightweight concrete produced using K Block Production Equipment can meet the demands of any project or product requirements.

High Volume: Fully Automatic Production Equipment:

Since the automatic plants are fully integrated – we only supply this type of plant as a complete system.

Production capacity:
150 – 700 m3 per line per day
Land area:
10,000 – 25,000 m2
Price including:
spare parts and 6 month equipment warrantee
Services:
plant commissioning, mix designs, raw material evaluation, production and product training
Investment:
Since our lightweight concrete is cement based, the equipment needed to produce high volumes per day is far less than other systems. No need for autoclaves, high pressure steam lines, silos for many dry materials, multiple slurry mixers, or complicated cutting equipment. K Block plants are designed to make producing lightweight block simple and consistent. Any since we also operate a fully automatic plant ourselves – training and trouble-shooting any issue is quick and easy – since we have direct and practical experience on production and marketing lightweight concrete block
 

Features:

  • 3.7 m3 twin shaft, high speed compulsory mixer
  • Fully integrated control system using PLC, HDMI multi-screen control panel, memory for 10 mix designs and emergency cut-off switch and load cell systems
  • Moulding and De-moulding systems with control panels
  • Transfer and ferry cart, and rail systems
  • Unique Block Cutting system to quick and ensure complete cuts, rough block surface and minimal waste and maintenance
  • Packing wrapping and curing systems – with optional low pressure steam curing tunnels

3. Lightweight Cutting Machines (for making Lightweight Block)
The block cutting machines need to provide the following:
  • A good rough surface for the mortar and plaster to bond to
  • Must cut the blocks completely – so that blocks are completely separated
  • Must be quick, and both easy to use and operate
 
4. Moulds
We can supply all or just a sample mould and drawings. And moulds can be designed for any block design required or one of our designs can be used
