4 REASONS FOR WEIGHING UP SAND BEFORE ROCKSeptember 16, 2014
An ongoing debate continues for why a producer should weigh up one material over the other. Following are some reasons why sand should be weighed up first.
1. Finalizes water target amount earlier with automatic moisture probe and allows pre-start of water feed sooner into Mixer Truck.
2. Almost all mix designs include Sand. By weighing up sand first the batch plant accuracy will increase because of the consistent free-fall amount.
3. Sand peaks out sooner than aggregate and needs more volume.
4. Weighing up Rock 2nd will provide aggregate for cleaning out the truck hopper.
