Concrete Plant
MCT Italy Smart Semi- Mobile Plant Type MCM lands in the UK
Litecast Ltd based in Nuneaton, Warwickshire, established in 1998 has since become a leading manufacturer of precast concrete floor beams throughout the UK.
Within the development process of a new production site, Litecast has selected MCT Italy Srl as supplier for the batching equipment feeding the new beams factory, through the cooperation with PUK Services, Midlands based agent for MCT.
The new project envisages the installation in 2020 of new factory with fixed batching facility with distribution system by flying buckets and casting machines.
To realize the foundations and concrete works of the new factory, Litecast selected the smart compact semi-mobile plant type MCM developed by MCT, already installed and handed over in the new site in Nuneaton.
The main structure of the MCM plant is composed of no.2 containers 8’ x 40’, therefore it can be easily transported (by road, ship or train) from one site to another being extremely easy to assemble and it doesn’t require civil works for the
support. Transportation, installation and commissioning can all be easily carried out with minimal need for foundations, plumbing or electrical connections, going together by four tapered pins positioned at the corners of the lower module, which are inserted and connected to the upper one; providing 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.
A planetary mixer 1.0 m3 output is installed, so the plant can reach a maximum production capacity up to 45 m3/h of the highest quality concrete.
The “Compunet” plant automation, very user friendly and easy to be commissioned, manages the plant operations in the most versatile way, ensuring the best batching and mixing performances. Moisture probes and plasticity system allow the quantity of water to be measured in real time and subsequently corrected. The plant can be operated remotely using state of the art wi-fi industrial handheld tablet. September/October 2019 - Issue 58
