Project at a Glance

Contents on the CD Rom

  • RMC comprises cement, aggregates, water and other ingredients which are weight batched at centrally-located plants. It is then delivered to the construction site in transit mixers.
  • Ready-mix concrete is sometimes preferred to on-site concrete mixing because of the precision of the mixture and reduced worksite confusion.
  • A RMC station has a computerized and fully automatic arrangement for batching and mixing of ingredients. As many as 100 mix-designs can be
    stored under the RMC computerized control and concrete can be prepared for any of these mix designs.
  • RMC can be prepared both by mixing the ingredients at the centrally installed plant itself or in the transit mixers while being carried to the site. Revolving speed of transit mixers is controlled to avoid segregation of concrete and to keep the concrete in plastic and unhardened state. First mixing option is exercised when the
    distance of site from the RMC plant is smaller and second option suits large transportation distances
  • Ready mixed concrete in its wet state is a substance hazardous to health and as such the employer of persons who may be exposed to it at work must carry out an assessment under the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations 1994.
  • The Ready mix concrete business in India is in its infancy. For example, 70% of cement produced in a developed country like Japan is used by Ready Mix concrete business there. Here in India, Ready Mix concrete business uses around 2% of total cement production.
  • Major cement manufacturers in India who have decided to venture into ready-mix concrete include Associated Cement Companies, Larsen & Toubro, Madras Cements and Grasim.
  • Deliveries of ready mix concrete can be taken directly from the ready-mix plants or the concrete can be delivered to worksites by concrete mixer trucks, so the use of ready mix concrete keeps worksite nuisances (dirt, congestion, noise, etc.) to minimum levels.
  • The cost advantage to cement manufacturers who own RMC plants is only restricted to their wafer-thin margin enjoyed by the cement industry in
    general. This is offset by the better bargain offers of other RMC plant owners due to tough competition. The proximity of the cement plant to the RMC plant would be the most ideal situation
  • The materials to be used for making RMC should conform to the requirements of IS 456:2000 or relevant code
    under the clause 9.2 or IS 456: 2000, the RMC manufacturer has to guarantee the quality of concrete as he shall be responsible to carry out the
    mix design which may be got approved the purchaser.
  • Wide range of computer-controlled concrete batching plants, transit mixers for transporting the RMC
    to the construction sites and pumps and concrete placing are manufactured in India
  • The size of the investment in the project be around Rs 5 crores
    for 2,50,000 tonnes per annum capacity. The plant will consist of two crushers and five screens, capable of producing a range of stone sizes ranging from 6 mm to 63 mm and Turnover could be around Rs 50 crores
  •  City like Chennai has market close to 5 million tonnes per annum
  • The price of ready mix concrete is expected to keep rising , as cement companies grapple with rising costs of raw materials and transportation.
  • The Indian RMC business is growing by 25 per cent every year
  • Lafarge establishes itself as the leader in the Indian ready-mix concrete market with the acquisition of L&T Concrete and its 66 concrete plants
