What is Ready Mix Concrete?

In India, concrete has traditionally been produced on site with the primitive equipments and use of large labour force. Ready mixed concrete is an advanced technology, involving a high degree of mechanization and automation. A typical RMC plant consists of silos and bins for the storage of cement and aggregates respectively, weigh batchers for proportioning different ingredients of concrete, high efficiency mixer for thorough mixing of ingredients, and a computerized system controlling the entire production process. The quality of the resulting concrete is much superior to site-mixed concrete.
