CEMEX take delivery of new Rapidmix 400CW
New-generation high-volume continuous mixing plant offers multiple benefits for CEMEX Paving Solutions
CEMEX Paving Solutions have recently taken delivery of a new Rapidmix 400CW high-volume mobile continuous mixing plant manufactured by Co. Armagh-based Rapid International Ltd.
The fully mobile and self-contained plant, which was sold in partnership with machinery dealers DUO plc, comes complete with its own power source (on-board compressor and generator) and is equipped with a hydraulic self-erecting system, allowing it to be changed from travel mode to fully operational mode within a few hours.
Capable of mixing up to 400 tonnes/h, depending on the application, the new-generation Rapidmix 400CW features fully adjustable feed rates for the aggregate, cement and water, and incorporates full weighing options for all raw materials, which means record-keeping is automated, precise and detailed.
According to Rapid International, the Rapidmix plant is an ideal solution for a wide variety of applications, including roller compacted concrete (RCC), cement-bound materials (CBM), bentonite-enriched soils, cold-mix bitumen emulsions, contaminated land treatment and recycled asphalt planings (RAP).
James Playford, business development manager with CEMEX Paving Solutions, said: ‘With the increase in the use of cementitious materials such as roller-compacted concrete, the new Rapidmix 400CW was the ideal choice for CEMEX UK.
‘The plant offers CEMEX multiple benefits including low operating costs, excellent mobility and high outputs to meet the challenging demands of today’s projects. The addition of the Rapidmix 400CW will undoubtedly help us deliver best value to all our clients.’
