Hydromix Logo Hydromix® Batch Data
We acquired these data which represents an actual single day's output from one of our customers. The significance of this day's pour is that it supplied a single customer 103 nine yard loads, showing a real world representation of the throughput of our mixer. Our system automatically logs similar data for each batch. Note the batch times which vary from 3 to 12 minutes, load to load. The average time per load based on the whole day is 4.66 minutes. This includes the longer times as mentioned. There were 67 loads at 3 and 4 minutes each that averaged 3.77 minutes per load. Using this average time per load, we can calculate how long it would have taken to pour this job if they had been able to sustain that pace, if there had always been a truck available and no other obstacles to slow them down. 103 loads at 3.77 minutes each totals just under 6 1/2 hours. Conversely, had they sustained that pace for 8 hours, approximately the time they took, they could have poured 127 loads with a total of 1143 yards.

Note the relatively slow aggregate load rates which vary from 200 to 300 pps. Aggregate feed rates are generally controlled by a plant's automation system, not by us, and are set up to represent the ability of a customer's plant to deliver and their trucks to receive. We have customers who achieve aggregate feed rates between 300 and 400+ pps.

The Analysis page shows the details for the load, including weigh up times and steps. This trend chart is from the same customer and is representative of the loads shown in the data spreadsheet. You can clearly see weighing times, pauses between products and by the batch man, and the relative slowness of the flyash auger.

These data reflect the capability of a particular plant and automation configuration, results will vary as the components differ and we cannot guarantee others can duplicate these results.
