What is hopper batching plant
Hopper batching plant is a small type of concrete plant, why name it hopper? Because there is a procedure that aggregate lifting is through a hopper, which differs from the large commercial concrete batching plant. And this type of small concrete batching plant has characteristics of small volume, small land occupation, simple operation, quick installation, easy maintenance, and automatic control.

Characteristics of each system in hopper type concrete batching plants
The mixing system is a JS-type double-horizontal-shaft compulsory concrete mixer, which is designed and manufactured according to large-scale mixer technology. It has the characteristics of reasonable structure, low noise, short mixing time, rapid discharge, uniform mixing, and high productivity. It can achieve good mixing effects for dry and harsh, plastics and various-proportion concrete.
Materials storage system
The cement storage silo is the equipment for bulk cement storage in the hopper batching plant, which can replace civil-engineering silo, with characteristics of water-proof, moisture-proof, prevent cement falling off and environmental pollution, long service life, and low cost.
The unique design of the batch hopper and track of the bucket elevator can conveniently and efficiently contain and dump aggregates, which can save one-half to two-thirds of the site area compared with the usual inclined belt conveying method.
The screw conveyor adopts quality steel pipe with good rigidity. Double-pitch blades reduce the degree of compression of material transportation; high-quality gearbox, heavy-duty design, high torque, and low noise; optional universal ball joints make it easy to install and adjust steering. What’s more, it is equipped with high-quality mid-lift bearings and tail bearings, which are easy to install.
Electrical control system
The electric control system is the core of the whole hopper lifting concrete batching plant. The whole machine adopts computer control, which can be controlled automatically or manually. The operation is simple and easy to master. The core electrical components use French Schneider and other world brand products, and the quality is guaranteed.
It is also equipped with a complete printing system and an advanced TV monitoring system, which can monitor important systems such as aggregate batching and concrete discharge in time. It is also equipped with a lighting system and a communication system to make the whole set of skip hoist type concrete batching plant more complete. It can also store and print report data.
The sensor has features of accurate weighing and quick responding, which is the primary link to realize automatic detection and automatic control.
The pneumatic butterfly valve has characteristics of good sealing performance, reliable action, simple structure, small volume, lightweight, and cost-effectiveness.
The pneumatic system is the action execution device of the skip hoist concrete mixing plant. Its function is to open and close the doors in time according to the instructions issued by the microcomputer, break the cement in the cement storage silo, blow and mix the additives, and ensure precise measurement of aggregates, cement, and additives, and complete the task of loading finished materials.

Common faults and maintenance notices of hopper lift concrete mixing plant
1. Dust accumulation, flexibility reduction, and instability of machine.
Solution: Keep the concrete plant and the surrounding environment clean.
The operator should clear the material in the hopper in time so that the sensor normal to zero.
2.Abnormal noise and lubrication part of rust.
Solution: Check whether the lubricating oil at each lubrication point is sufficient. The oil mist in the gas path system should be maintained with sufficient oil. Whether the motors and electrical appliances are overheated, whether the instrument indication is normal, and whether the signal system is intact.
3.Open and closed valve is not sensitive to open or can not close.
Solution: Check and adjust the cylinder, butterfly valve, and solenoid valve, according to the instructions of the cylinder, butterfly valve, air valve for normal maintenance.
4.Ash leakage, gas leakage, oil leakage, etc.
Solution: check all systems, the above phenomenon should be timely maintain, whether the contact part is not strict.
5.The hopper does not discharge or discharge is not smooth.
Solution: Clean the mixer and discharge hopper on time to avoid consolidation of residual concrete and hinder normal operation.

What about the maintenance of small skip hoist type concrete batching plant after work
1. Clean the ash inside and outside the mixing tank wall, the discharge outlet, the mixing shaft, and the concrete residue on the discharge door. Wash these places with water. If necessary, can put a small number of stones and water mixing for a few minutes and then release. Clean additive tank and its supply system with water.
2.During the freezing season, the water pump, additive pump, water tank, additive tank, residual water, an additive in the pipeline of water and additive should be drained at the end of the work to prevent damage to the pump and its pipeline, and start the operation of the additive pump of the water pump for 1-2 minutes.
