This batch plant is designed to produce cementitious slurry for jet grouting of soils in civil construction projects.

Storage silos supply bulk materials to the grout mixer, screw-conveying cement and other ingredients such as flyash and bentonite which are mixed with water and admixtures in a high shear colloidal mixer.

The colloidal mixer serves as a mixer and scale, weighing water, cement and other ingredients directly, while liquid admixtures are pumped in at the proper point in the sequence based on a calibrated run time.

Mixing is accomplished rapidly, discharging the finished grout via a heavy duty slurry pump into an agitation tank. Grout is held in the agitation tank and pumped on demand. The entire process is automated, with the agitation tank low-level sensor initiating subsequent batches.
