Volumetric concrete mixers

Utranazz mixerJust spotted this in The Construction Index, and thought it was worth a quick note. Not something completely new, but it looks like Utranazz and Elkins may have solved one of the biggest problems in this kind of concrete mixer – conveyor belt replacement – by developing a slide-out belt cassette.

Hopefully, if this proves to be practical, we may see more of this sort of unit on the road rather than traditional drum mixer deliveries, allowing exact quantities to be delivered, and part-load charges to be eliminated.
