Whether you are working on road base work, dam construction, reservoir projects, concrete, or soil remediation, the RapidMix Mobile Mixing Plant will get the job done.
What can your RapidMix do?
Do you think potholes are inevitable? Think again, with RapidMix Continuous Mixing Plants production of roller compacted concrete (RCC), sinkholes and cracks are now a thing of the past. Here are just some of the incredible features of RapidMix and RCC.
- RapidMix Continuous Mixing Plants are designed for any mixing application where a cement or binder needs to be mixed into a base material.
- Produces products such as; Roller Compacted Concrete, Cement Treated Base, Bentonite, Contaminated Soil Stabilization and more.
- A few functions of these products are; Cement-Treated Base, Airport runways, dam construction, parking lots, highway shoulders, and soil remediation.
- RapidMix Roller Compacted Concrete (RCC) has a high flexural strength of 500 to 1,000 psi to support heavy, repetitive loads without failure and spans localized soft subgrade areas, which reduces maintenance costs and downtime.
- RCC has a high compressive strength of 4,000 to 10,000 psi to withstands high concentrated loads and impacts from heavy industrial, military, and mining applications.
- RCC has no forms or finishing’s which speeds construction, reduces cost, and minimizes labor.
- RCC has a high density and low absorption to provide excellent durability, even under freeze-thaw conditions; eliminates seepage through the pavement.
- RCC does not need steel reinforcing or dowels; speeds and simplifies construction, reduces costs and eliminates the need for preventative measures taken to minimize corrosion of reinforcing steel
- RCC has low water/cement ratio which increases strength, reduces permeability, and enhances durability and resistance to chemical attack.
Roller-Compacted Concrete, or RCC, was invented in 1976 when the Canadian logging industry switched to environmentally cleaner, land-based log-sorting methods. The industry needed a strong pavement to stand up to massive loads and specialized equipment. Today, RCC is used when strength, durability, and economy are primary needs for a company.
RCC has similar characteristics to concrete, while being less expensive than asphalt – especially when the length of service before repairs are required. It has been shown to be tough in the harshest conditions, fast to apply, and economical for taxpayers and project developers. Maintenance costs over the lifetime of the pavement are substantially reduced providing long serviceability with minimal maintenance. It shares the same basic ingredients as traditional concrete: cement, water, and aggregates. However, instead of being transferred to a project in mixer trucks, it is mixed on site via the pugmill twin shaft mixer located on the portable RapidMix 400C plant, and discharged to dump trucks for delivery to the job site. There it is placed using a specialized paver with a vibratory screed and compacted with vibratory rollers.
The development of the Rapid International USA RCC Plants now enables contractors to meet the market’s demand for large pour projects. Once the RapidMix International RCC Plant arrives on a jobsite, it can be literally less than an hour before it is ready to work. Both the RapidMix 400C and the RapidMix 600C have been designed to be fully mobile and entirely self-contained with their own power source. They are also completely self-erecting, using the hydraulic system to change the plant from its travel mode into a fully operational plant within a few hours. Utilizing a continuous mixing system, these plants mix from 400- 600 tons per hour depending on the application. Feed rates are fully adjustable for the aggregate, cement, and water systems. The plants are designed for any mixing application where a cement or binder needs to be mixed into a base material.
