At the Maco Group in Beijing/China installation work is currently underway at full speed for a dry mortar production plant planned by Eirich for more than 100 raw materials in two production lines. Commissioning is scheduled for 2015.Maco awarded Eirich the contract for the engineering and the delivery of the key components of the new plant (mixers, batching systems, scales, control systems). One of the two lines will be ATEX-conform.
The two Eirich RV24 (2 x 3000 l) intensive mixers used at Maco require no choppers for system-related reasons: the disintegration of the fines is achieved thanks to the high Froude numbers of the mixing tool.
In order to meet requirements in terms of the high quality standards and the diversity of the large and small components, today‘s dry mortar production plants are almost completely automated. For the Maco project this means that more than 100 components have to be batched via over 30 scales, some of which are accurate to within +/- 5 g.
