Germany-based Fliegl Baukom has launched concrete filling station BTS, which is set to help construction companies achieve successful building with fresh concrete
With Fliegl Baukom’s concrete filling station BTS, one can quickly and easily tap fresh concrete themselves. The gardening and landscaping company as well as other private and commercial customers benefit from the quickly available concrete.
Fliegl Baukom offers the ideal solution for fresh concrete to do-it-yourselves as well as small professional customers, fence builders, stone setters, civil engineering companies. One of these concrete filling stations is located in Cham. Andreas Bucher, partner at B&O Recycling GbR from Cham, presents the new line of business of his company: The Fliegl concrete filling and mixing system BTS 1000.
A silo contains the cement and there are three extra-large storage bunkers for sand and gravel. The machine starts the mixing process automatically and the conveyor belts deliver the fresh sand and gravel before the water and cement are added. The mixing process starts and takes about a minute. The whole process, including loading the concrete onto the customer’s vehicle, takes around three minutes.
Fliegl’s BTS at B&O Recycling GbR has been in operation for six months and over 1000m³ of concrete have already been delivered. The quick availability of fresh concrete, as well as the short distances that customers have to cover, are important success factors. In order to relieve the operator of the concrete filling station as much as possible, the BTS is equipped with a self-cleaning system. The cleaning effort is reduced to cleaning once a day.
Due to its connection to the server, Fliegl’s concrete filling station can be easily and globally controlled by the customer at any time. The machine is also configured via the computer by setting the mixing ratios using a clear user software. The filling quantity of the cement silo is also displayed and the moisture content of gravel and sand can be adjusted.
