1. SCOPE
Produce Concrete by Batching Plant. Plant Project
2. PROCEDUR manager Director
Summary
Mixing raw materials like cement, coarse aggregates, fine Plant
aggregates, chemicals and water inside plant and send to sites by operator/ Third party
truck-mixer to cast concrete by concrete pump or without concrete QC / Project
pump. engineer Director
.1 Checks Prior to Commencement of Activity:

i) Basic constituents of concrete viz. cement, coarse and Project


fine aggregates shall comply with the contract Procurem Director/thi
specifications. In case of large projects and where ent rd party
specified, a laboratory will be set up at site for conducting manager
tests on materials and ensured product.
ii) Availability of potable water and power shall be ensured. MPE Project
In case of supply failure alternative arrangements shall Engineer Director
also be planned.
iii) Verify the type of admixture if required, to be added. If QC ENG/ Project
required as per project specifications. Plant Director
.2 Handling and Storage of Materials: Manger

Special care shall be taken for proper storage of basic Logistics Plant
materials in order to avoid contamination. Unless otherwise officer operator
specified, the following measures shall be taken for proper /store
handling and storage of these materials: keeper
Barge, Tipper and shovels will use for transfer materials. Plant
. Cement (in bulk): Logistics operator/la
Logistic and store team will handle cement tankers from Palm Diera officer b
to island until unloading finish in silo. /store technician

i) The silos shall be weatherproof and the mechanism will Maintena manager
be cleaned regularly. nce
ii) The air filter will be cleaned. superviso
iii) Care shall be taken to use stored cement in the order of r
delivery.
iv) Care shall be taken to minimise the contact of cement
with air.
v) The silo shall be painted.

.4 Aggregates:

i) Storage of aggregates shall be on clean; permanent Plant Plant


clean hard-standing laid to fall for drainage. Operator manager
ii) Different sizes of aggregates shall be separated from
each other in bins or compartments with rigid dividing
walls extending high enough to prevent different
aggregates from being mixed during batching.
iii) In hot climates either shading or sprinkling clean water is
required to reduce that fines and dust have not built up
at the lower levels. If this has occurred, contaminated
aggregates shall be removed and washed or replaced
with clean material.
iv) If aggregates are wet stockpiles shall be frequently
inspected to make sure that fines and dust have not built
up at the lower levels. If this has occurred, contaminated
aggregates shall be removed and washed or replaced
with clean material.

.5 Admixtures:

i) Storage of admixture shall be as per the manufacturer’s Store- Manufactu-


recommendations. Keeper/la rer’s
ii) The containers shall be levelled to indicate the contents, b recom-
batch number, date of manufacture, and any other technicia mendation
requirements for storage. n

.6 Water:

i) Water shall be stored as cool as possible, particularly if it


has been supplied by road tanker or shallow wells. MPE Plant
ii) Wherever possible, storage tanks shall be sited below Engineer manager
ground. It this is not possible, they should be at least be
painted white.
iii) Tank to be covered properly to prevent the growth of
algae.
iv) For cooling of water even site cooling towers can be used Plant Plant
which reduces the temperature up to 10OC or ice can be Operator manager
used.

.7 Plant:

i) Batching and mixing plant shall be painted white and kept Plant HSE
clean outside and inside mixer. helper/pla manager/
ii) If possible, mixing and batching plant shall be shaded nt Plant
from the sun. operator/ Manager
iii) Provision shall be made to prevent dust accumulating in HSE /project
the plant and immediately before it is used each day (or officer director
after any substantial interruption in concreting) it shall be
flushed out with water.
iv) Feed belts and weigh batchers shall be protected from
the wind so that cement can’t be blown away if screw not
using.
v) Calibration should done or Ensure the accuracy of all
weighing and measuring equipment falls within + 3%
unless specified otherwise calibrate plant as necessary.

.8 equipment’s and fleet:

i) Batching Plant including mixer, conveyers, balances


and scales.
ii) Truck-mixer transfer concrete from plant to site. Logistics
iii) Concrete pump placed concrete from truck-mixer in Plant Manager/
element structure at site. Operator Plant
iv) Shovel transfer aggregates from stockpile to plant Manager
hopper. /project
v) Tipper truck transfer materials from barge area to director
stockpile.
vi) Cement tankers unloading cement inside silos.
vii) chemical tankers unloading chemical inside silos
viii) Water tankers unloading water inside tanks.
