Horizontal batching plants are stationary technological equipment designed for the production of concrete mixture. The output of standard types ranges from 25 mᵌ/hour up to 120 mᵌ/hour.
The technical arrangement allows to choose the type of aggregates bin according to specific conditions and location of the building site. Technology of batching plant is equipped with modern electronic systems of all components weighing. Weighing of aggregates can be proceeded in the skip conveyor, on the weighing belt or in the scale under the mixer – according to the chosen variant.
Horizontal batching plants are divided according the accomplishment of aggregates bin:
- HBS with linear aggregates bin (HBS + ZKL) – weighing of aggregates proceeds on weighing belt that is placed under the bin. Aggregates is into the mixer transported by the help of skip conveyor
- HBS with compartments aggregates bin and conveyor belt for transport of the aggregates (HBS SP + ZKK). Transport of aggregates is solved by the help of conveyor belt. Weighing of aggregates proceeds in skip conveyor by the help of weighing frame that is placed on tensors.
- 3) HBS with star depot and radial scraper. Horizontal batching plant with outside star depot where aggregates is stored. The radial scraper is placed on the steel structure of batching plant's separating wall that divides batching plant itself from the star depot. Weighing of aggregates proceeds in skip conveyor by the help of weighing frame that is placed on tensors.
- HBS with conical aggregates bin (HBS + ZKV) so called subdivided tower plant. It is a compromise between horizontal and tower batching plant. Aggregates are stored in conical aggregates bin which has got its own bearing structure that is placed next to the batching plant. Scale for aggregates' weighing is placed under the bin, and aggregates are transported into the mixer by the help of skip conveyor. The way of aggregates' loading into particular fractions of bin is the same as for tower batching plants, namely by the elevator or by the inclined conveyor belt.
