No plant is designed to run without regular maintenance!

Maintenance is result oriented and the cornerstone of economic work.

Due to the continuous operation of the concrete batching plants; all items are subject to high degree of wear and tear. Therefore keeping a batch plant in good condition always requires regular maintenance.

Maintenance in any concrete batch plant refers to the process of ensuring a certain machines, components or systems is in good and working order before and after use. The main goal and purpose of maintenance is to keep all equipment working at their best at all times. To achieve this, it is important to avoid unnecessary downtime, replacements, and breakdowns as much as possible.

Another purpose of performing maintenance at a concrete batch plant is to ensure a safe working environment. Defective parts can lead to potential hazards that can, directly and indirectly, harm the operatör and his assistance also other workers. In extreme cases, equipment failure can lead to accidents that cause injuries or fatalities.

In addition to safety concerns, another purpose of maintenance is to prevent unnecessary costs. Repairs and replacements can be much more expensive than conducting maintenance and downtime can lead to lost revenue and decreased productivity. Neglecting or deferring maintenance can also result in equipment components reaching the end of their useful life much sooner than expected, possibly causing unplanned expenses.

This ebook aims to emphasize the importance of the maintenance at concrete batching plants and consists of following sections. Importance of care, plant maintenance, periodic maintenance, mechanical systems, pneumatic systems, filter system, lubrication, calibration, central mixer maintenance and troubleshooting.

With many different plant configurations and batching and control mechanisms in service, it is impossible to cover every piece of equipment from a maintenance standpoint. Concrete plant manufacturers often provide maintenance manuals for the purchased equipment. But many concrete plants are built, customized and upgraded. Therefore this study addresses general maintenance considerations that apply to most plants.
