We’ve previously discussed whether it’s best to batch above, below, or at the target concrete slump.
Without Verifi, many ready mix concrete producers find that it makes the most sense to batch above target slump. With Verifi, however, it makes more sense to batch at or slightly below target. This avoids the risk of delivering concrete above the target slump. Verifi can add water automatically in transit to reach the target slump, which saves time at the plant and jobsite.
Today’s Load of the Week was batched below the target slump. Verifi added water automatically to reach and maintain the target slump until discharge.
