INNOVATION IN THE CONCRETE INDUSTRY
Introducing Master X-Seed® 55 – Strength-Enhancing Admixture. This admixture is based on a technology that ensures a stable suspension of synthetically-produced crystalline CSH nanoparticles. These particles act as seeds in a concrete mixture to facilitate the growth of active crystals between cement particles. The unique technology of Master X-Seed 55® admixture provides an unmatched improvement of the hydration process in a concrete matrix which increases early- and late age strength development compared to an untreated concrete mixture. It provides solutions for tight construction schedules and deadlines, while helping to reduce the carbon footprint of concrete.
WASTE REDUCTION WEEK IN CANADA
messaging empowers all Canadians to adopt more environmentally conscious choices. Furthermore it provides information and ideas to reduce waste in our daily lives, creating the solutions to the many environmental challenges we face including climate change, water pollution and preservation of natural resources. Draglam Waste & Recycling commends the City of Toronto and all sponsors who support this initiative. This year each of the seven days focused on a theme with key messaging.
THE IMPORTANCE OF AGGREGATES
Have you ever stopped to think about the role sand and gravel play in your life?
Aggregates are the foundation of our economy and society. They are non-renewable resources such as sand, gravel and stone which everyone uses and benefits from every day. We live in homes and work in buildings built with aggregate; children in our communities go to schools built with aggregate; every one of us travel on sidewalks, roads and highways constructed from aggregate to reach our destinations safely. Believe or not, even the water we drink is filtered and purified by aggregate!
COMPUTERIZED CONCRETE BATCHING
A ready mix concrete plant, also known as a concrete batching plant, is a machine or equipment that combines various types of materials such as sand, gravel, and aggregates to form concrete. The ratio of different amounts of materials and additives will depend on the desired concrete type that the customer is requesting for their project. The concrete plant has many different components which include the cement and aggregate batchers, aggregate bins, conveyors, mixers, heaters, cement silos, control panels and dust collectors. The efficiency of the concrete batching plant allows for high quality and durable concrete.
