The Cart-Away Batch Loader or CBL is the most efficient
and accurate automated batching plant used for dispatching
portable concrete mixer trailers. Cart-Away dry belt loader
systems are in rental stores, landscape material yards and
building supply locations all around the US and Canada.
These automated batching systems service hundreds of
concrete mixer trailers every day and help thousands of
contractors and homeowners to save on short load delivery
The dry batch loader combines the cement
powder, the sand and the rock through synchronized conveyor
belts and into the drum of a concrete mixing trailer. These
dry materials are joined with the water from the CBL
batching plant to create the ready-mixed concrete that
customers take to their job sites in the towable concrete
mixers. The mixing of the water and the dry materials is
done in the drum of the trailer as the unit is towed down
The dry loading batch plant is cleaner
than older wet-auger batchers that were common in the past
and loaded older U cart style tub trailers. In fact, many of
the U-cart style batch plants have been converted over to
the new dry batch loaders by the Cart-Away service
department. Cart-Away eliminated the auger mixing component
of the trailer batching system and replaced it with cleaner
and more efficient conveyors. This step has reduced
wear-part replacement costs and has made clean-up between
batches much easier. The new dry batching plants also have
cut the trailer loading time in half, allowing 1-yard
trailers to be filled in only 2-minutes with the CBL.
Cart-Away automated concrete batching units are
available in single hopper or double material hopper
configurations. Single hopper units are best for batching a
pre-mixed aggregate. These pre-mixed materials consist of a
combination of sand and rock that comes from the quarry with
50/50 or 60/40 ratios of sand and gravel combined in a
single delivery. If the pre-mixed aggregates are available
then only one storage bin is needed to service the ready-mix
operation. In many areas the quarries do not blend a pre-mix
so there will need to be two aggregate storage areas. In
these areas the dual hopper is better suited for areas where
pre-mix is not readily available.
Regardless of the
configuration of hoppers, the Cart-Away CBL batch plant
comes with several standard features:
Loads one yard
in just 2-minutes
operation than wet concrete blenders
An advanced material loading system
built for the trailer-based concrete industry
OR DOUBLE HOPPER (CBL 1 or CBL 2) units are
available depending on your specific needs. Double hopper
units have the ability to carry multiple aggregate mixes or
to blend two different aggregates.
ACTION allows the conveyor to move in a 120
degree arc and load trailers from different positions.
TRAILER STAGING of as many as five trailers.
This can save time on a busy day. The swing-arm conveyor can
move quickly between the pre-positioned trailers.
loads a yard of dry concrete material into a rotating drum
trailer in two minutes.
DISPENSING into the mixing trailer drum yields a
much cleaner concrete operation.
PARTS means over $1,500 in parts replacement
cost savings per year over the old wet auger mixers
HOPPERS gives the tractor operator a bigger
target during loading and keeps the mess out of the yard.
Piles of gravel on the ground are common with older systems.
