Today’s Load of the Week arrived on site 25 minutes after batching. The contractor initially discharged a small amount of concrete upon arrival. After a 30-minute delay, the contractor began to pour the remaining concrete.
Verifi continued to manage the load during this delay by automatically adding water so that when it was time to pour concrete, the slump was on target. The driver followed prompts from Verifi to mix at high speed after water additions, per specification. In addition, Verifi accounted for the the smaller volume in the mixing drum after the initial discharge. This was important in both accurately measuring slump and in recording the amount of water added in gallons per cubic yard.
