Typical sets of equipment for foam concrete production

for plants with productivity
from 10 to 150 cubic meters of foam concrete blocks per day

Before starting the foam concrete production line and before making your order you need to give a definite answer to the following questions:

  1. What sizes of foam concrete blocks are planned to be produced. The dimension types often different from country to country. When ordering metal moulds it is important to know the exact dimension type as it will be impossible to change it afterwards. Though in the same mould you can produce both building blocks and laster ones. That means that while producing blocks it is possible to change their thickness but not length and width. Standard block sizes are:

a. 400x300x200 (100) mm

b. 500x300x200 (100) mm

c. 588x300x200 (100) mm

d. 600x300x200(100) mm

e. any other sizes are also possible

  1. How many cubic meters of blocks is it planned to produce?

  1. How do you plan to keep the cement and sand and feed the foam-concrete machine with it? There are 2 possible ways- manually (cement is taken out of the bags and sand is passed by buckets) and automatically (cement comes from silo and sand from bunker).

In the given below table you can see typical sets of equipment for the plants with different productivity:

 

 

Productivity from 5 to 30 cub. m. per day

Productivity from 30 to 100 cub. m per day

Productivity from 100 to 150 cub.m. per day

When planning the production line the attention should be paid to the consumption of materials.

Consumption of materials for foam concrete production:

On every cubic meter of foam concrete of medium density it is needed:

(the information is approximate and may change due to the produced density and production technology):

  1. Foam agent GreenFroth — 0,9 litres

  2. metal mould lubricant Pieri — 0,4 litres

  3. cement M500 D0 — 300 kg

  4. sand with fraction up to 2 mm, clay and other inclusions no more than 2 % – 220 kg

  5. water — 170 litres
