ELKON Concrete Batching Plants - UK’s Largest Producer Chose ELKON

Owing to the manufacturing quality, superior features of the concrete batching plants and with the production and sales numbers, ELKON, which is the largest manufacturer of concrete batching plants not only in Turkey but also in Europe, continues to include leading companies of the world in its references.

Having more than 150 concrete batching plants in UK and performing 2 million cubic meters of concrete production per year, Hope Construction Materials is the largest concrete manufacturer in United Kingdom. At the same time, Hope company, which has the biggest cement factory located in Hope, Derbyshire in England, is carrying out the production of 1.5 million tons of cement per year.

In the middle of 2014, when Hope Construction Materials decided to renew their concrete batching plant in Thornton – Blackpool, several interviews were conducted with the manufacturers from UK and Europe.

This installation should have been settled in a very narrow site and the installation site was very close to the residential areas. Furthermore, Hope demanded a concrete batching plant with 55 m³/hour production capacity and to minimize the environmental impact.

The concrete batching plant, which can produce 55 m³/h vibrated concrete with the 1500/1000 l. ELKON Twinshaft Mixer, has 4x15 m³ square type aggregate storage bin and equipped with Automated Aggregate Feeding System for the aggregate loading.

Thanks to the optionally available high pressure automatic cleaning system for the mixer, mixer can be easily cleaned at the end of the production and it will extend lifetime of wearing parts.

The water used for washing the mixer can be stored in the recycling pools through the special drainage system and can be reutilized in the concrete production.

To minimize the impact on the environment, the concrete batching plant was covered with trapeze sheets. As the trapeze sheet enclosures are designed as modular, the installation can be carried out in a very short time.

ELKON, through the innovation on design and production of the concrete batching plants which has high quality standards, was preferred by Hope Construction Materials which is the biggest ready mix company in UK.
