compact batching plant

Compact Plants

The compact plants in 30 m3 category is designed as such that the customer move it from one place to another. So, for this purpose, we have designed the compact plant CP 30 in a containerized format. Even a customer can ship it out of the country easily in a 40 ft container. So, it reduces the tremendous cost on transportation. Besides, the customer can re-erect the plant in a quick fashion. The compact plants are design houses which includes the Model CP30 (30 m3 productivity rate) and CP45 (45 m3 productivity rate). These plants are available in star, compartment and in-line Silo configurations.

mobile batching plant

Mobile Plants

Mobile plants are for those customers who would like to move the plant from project to project quickly. A lot of cost is involved in the construction of foundation and other infrastructure. Mobile plants keeps such cost in the minimum and is ideally suited for road construction. The Mobile Plants are known for their easy assembly and erection at the site like the M1, M1.25, M2.25, M2.5, M21Z and M30Z. Wherever construction sites have to be supplied for any length of time with larger quantities of high-quality concrete, mobile mixing plants from Schwing Stetter India are ideal.

It does not matter whether they are used for the construction of traffic routes, dams, landfills or airports, the M series plants have been designed to handle the task. They can be quickly moved, transported on low-bed semitrailers and quickly set up again, thanks to the fully installed, pre-assembled compact units. The current development status of the mobile plant benefits from our vast experience worldwide.

horizontal batching plant

Horizontal Plants

Horizontal plants are for customers who would like to stay in a particular location for a long period of time like dam construction, for ready-mix. Stetter horizontal concrete mixing plants H1N, H1.25N, H2N, H3N, H4N, H5 and H6 incorporate the experience of over 72 years in mixing plant technology. Depending on the requirements, the HN-type series is equipped with a pan mixer or a twin-shaft mixer.

While designing the plant, high importance was attached to the access, thereby facilitating maintenance. In addition, the generously dimensioned space allows this plant to be offered in a wide variety which can be taken from a modular system. H 5 & H6 plants are for mass requirements and can be suited to individual’s demands by adapting the design accordingly.
