MCM control unit very flexible
The main structure of this plant is composed of two 8 ft x 40 ft containers, which means it can easily be transported (by road, ship or train) from one site to another and is extremely easy to assemble. Transportation, installation and commissioning can be carried out by the customer‘s existing crew without the need for foundations, plumbing or electrical connections. The plant goes together using pinned connections with no needs for bolts and nuts that we call our “zero nuts and bolt” design. The two containers are connected to each other by four tapered pins positioned at the corners of the lower module, which are inserted and connected to the upper one: this provides stability to the entire structure.
The electrical and hydraulic connections are carried out and tested in the factory with the aim of guaranteeing maximum reliability of the whole system; the customer’s assembly crew are therefore required only to connect the industrial plugs from the motors to the control panel when the system is installed.
Furthermore, the innovative project with two 40’ containers, can be easily equipped with the integration of aggregate heating system, extremely important during the winter season in Ukraine. MCM 3.1.25 batching plant is also equipped with moisture, plasticity and water-cement ratio control systems providing uniform concrete that meets the requirements of UNI EN 206-1. The planetary mixer can batch high quality concrete of each consistency class (from 0 slump to self-compacting concrete), making the MCM control unit extremely flexible and suitable for any type of construction industry. The mixer capacity of 1500 liters water volume guarantees the production of 1 cubic meter of concrete each cycle and a total productivity of 45 cubic meters per hour.
Software is the heartbeat
The software is the heartbeat of the batching plant and guarantees the complete monitoring of the production processes, as well as the complete production report. The CompuNet system, developed by MCT Italy software department, consistently controls all the aspects of the production process and reports of raw material storage levels. All parameters are displayed in the control cabin touch screen, and the operator can easily monitor the process in real time. With MCT Italy remote assistance service, the MCT Engineers are able to monitor customer‘s production and provide immediate support in case of need.
