Las mezcladoras de BHS, clave en la construcción de una gran presa en Portugal

April 2021
Desde el año 2017, Talleres Alquézar utiliza con éxito dos mezcladores de BHS en su planta modular en Portugal para la producción de hormigón para presas con un volumen total de 400.000 m3. En este proyecto tan exigente, se concluyó que el mezclador discontinuo de dos ejes era el sistema idóneo, superando el mito del sector que afi rma que esta tecnología no es adecuada para este tipo de mezclas de hormigón. En cuanto a la duda planteada sobre la idoneidad del mezclador en este proyecto, la constructora española ha superado incluso las elevadas exigencias del hormigón a emplear para la construcción de la presa portuguesa.

Continuous production for major infrastructure project

January 2021
Despite Covid-19 safety protocols, work continues on schedule at one of the highest volume precast, prestressed concrete yards in North America: the Dragados-Flatiron Joint Venture (DFJV) Pre-Cast Facility in Hanford, California. Hanford Pre-Cast Facility crews are on a tight schedule to complete the 40-acre major infrastructure project by February 2022. Within a total of four years, the contractors are fabricating nearly 2,400 California Wide Flange (CWF) girders, 90 tub girders and 12,000-plus deck panels. In order to achieve this, DFJV built a batch plant for the production of self-consolidating type mixes, combining a Vince Hagan HT Haganator with a BHS-Sonthofen twin-shaft mixer, the latter assuring short, but very robust cycles to yield high-flow concretes exhibiting 20-in. spreads with zero aggregate segregation.
