What is the advantage of a concrete batching plant?

 BATCHING is a very important aspect in making of a fresh concrete. It means measuring of various quantities predetermined to achieve required strength.  If the quantity of any material(aggregates, cement, admixtures, water) is different, there is drasti change in properties of hardened concrete especially when one is using admixture as little more or less quantity of admixtures can completely change the properties of hardened concrete which may be undesirable. Hence proper batching is essential. Moreover, there  are  two types of batching

Volume
Weight
Generally, volume batching is done where wiegh batching can't be done due to some of disadvantages of volume batching(bulking, bulk densities, air content,etc.) . And in batching plant, weight batching is usually done. concrete batching plant are also more accurate than manual weigh batching. So perfect mixture can be prepared using batching plant and itis generally used in RMC plants and in megastructures where quality of concrete is of foremost importance.
