For more than six months we’ve been using the Visco Probe to control the addition of water to our various mixes for fibre-reinforced concrete with really good results.

Higher quality in manual mixing

An easy way to start quality assurance. Quality is optimised on the basis of consistency (rheology) measurements – before delivery for casting.

How you benefit

With a Visco Probe installed in your mixing plant, you will improve the quality control of manually mixed concrete in the following ways:

  • Mixing plant operator: Can adjust the water content and super-plastification on the basis of the Visco Probe’s objective measurements, documented experience and the formula used..
  • Product quality: Greater uniformity. The production facilities can be set to known mixing parameters to ensure uniform deliveries. Quality is optimised on the basis of consistency/rheology measurements – before delivery for casting.
  • Production waste: Rejected mixes are minimised.
  • Documentation: Feedback is sent to the quality assurance department.

 

How to start

The Visco Probe sensor and base are mounted on the mixer and the mixing plant operator attends a two-day introductory course on the Visco Probe.

The challenge –manual plants

Quality adjustment is based on subjective assessments of water content and varying practices. No reliable objective control.

Consequence: The concrete delivered for casting may be defective. Due to the time lag in feedback to production facilities, more defective concrete is produced, which may need to be disposed of.
