The beginning of summer marks the arrival of the whole summer, hot summer, high temperature not only test people’s ability to withstand, but also test our concrete mixing plant equipment, customers in the use of concrete mixing plant only pay more attention to the daily maintenance of equipment, in order to effectively extend the service life. So how to maintain the concrete mixing plant equipment in the summer? Our technical staff will give you detailed answers.
The heat of hydration of cement after the concrete is poured will propel the internal temperature of concrete to rise sharply. The high temperature in summer will very easily lead to the formation of dry shrinkage cracks on the surface, and due to the large temperature difference between day and night, as the temperature gradually decreases, the heat inside the concrete cannot be dissipated, resulting in a large temperature difference between inside and outside the concrete, which is very easy to form cracks. Only by tracing the root cause can we solve the problem at root.
First of all, the concrete produced by our concrete mixing plant should be protected by a full cover of film according to the characteristics of the summer temperature, secondly, avoid the construction of the highest ground temperature period, and finally, the mixing plant will lower the temperature of the mix in the process of mixing materials, and appropriately reduce the amount of cement used, so as to reduce the heat of cement water seizure.
