Abstract:
Reviews the development of conveyor systems for effective plaing of ready-mixed concrete. The techniques for using belt conveyors in this manner over the last 15 years, special conveyors developed, are discussed. Three types of conveyors are described: portable units for short lift and short reach applications, feeder units for spreading applications, and side discharge units for spreading applications.
