How we do it


How It Works

Sand, Stone and Cement are loaded into separate bins, Water and Additives are stored in separate tanks on the truck.

Once we are on site the operator simply adjusts the dual control aggregate flow gates to ensure the correct amount of sand and stone are delivered for the mix, a conveyor belt under the aggregate bins delivers the precise amount of aggregate to the mixing auger.

Cement is accurately dispensed via a screw, and as the cement and other materials enter the mixing auger, water and additives are metered out to deliver the correct slump.

Once the pour has been completed the Omnex Batch Computer prints of a ticket that gives you the total Cubic Metres including individual totals for Cement, Water, Sand and Stone that has been used on your job.

Save Money and the Environment

We only make what you need and thatís all you pay for, thereís no waste. For example, you buy a 1000m3 of concrete a year on average 5% of concrete is returned, thatís 50m3 of concrete wasted or $12,500.00 @ $250.00/m3, or 50tn of Stone, 48tn of sand, 12tn of cement and 8000ltrs of water, that would otherwise go to landfill.

Capacity for those remote or larger jobs

We have two 6x4 Hinos with Reimers RA500 Units giving us the ability to pour anything from a fence post to house floor, or for those more remote or larger pours we can deliver all the materials to your site, and you can use one of our trucks as an onsite plant, where one trucks can produce up to 50m3/hour of fresh concrete, no need for retarders, waiting for trucks, measures and adding water on site.

Testing

If required we can take a set of cylinders from your pour, have them tested by Holcimís IANZ Accredited Lab at Bombay, and we will supply you with a copy of that test result.

Pumping

We have one of Pioneer Pumps truck mounted line pumps on Waiheke, with access to their other pumps if the need arises.
