A preview of some of the MCPX exhibitors' products follows. Booth numbers were correct at time of publication.

Mosaic retaining wall

The company's retaining walls are the original solid, pinned retaining walls that accommodate geogrid soil reinforcement to reach heights of 50 or more feet. This random-pattern wall offers design flexibility and structural integrity and is easily installed. With its vintage, historic look, the Weathered option is ideal for renovation projects. Versa-Lok Retaining Wall Systems. 800-770-4525. www.versa-lok.com.MCPX Booth #827

Moisture sensor

The Hydro-Mix VI microwave sensor accurately measures moisture within static pan, horizontal shaft, and ribbon mixers. The product interfaces directly with all control systems; the company's Hydro-Com software enables remote calibration, configuration, and firmware upgrades. Built for rugged use, the unit features a hardened steel wear ring and ceramic faceplate. Hydronix Ltd. 888-887-4884. www.hydronix.com.MCPX Booth #1721

Geothermal precast curing

This new system harnesses geothermal energy to cure precast panels and walls. Hot water stored beneath the earth's surface is channeled into a water-air heat exchanger; air heated to 120° F then circulates through the insulated curing chambers, subjecting the concrete to consistent temperatures 24 hours a day for optimal accelerated curing of precast products. Kraft Energy Systems Inc. 817-338-4997. www.kraftenergy.com.MCPX Booth #129

Batching/mixing plant

The MobilMat Mo45 automatic mixing and batching plant comes fully assembled and wired to ensure rapid startup. It offers continuous concrete production rates of 58 cu. yds. per hour. Choose from a range of automated control options, including PCS control with detailed recipe-based settings and customizable reporting capability. Automated mixer cleaning is optional. Advanced Concrete Technologies Inc. 603-431-5661. www.concretebiz.com.MCPX Booth #355

Insulated panels

The Precision line of insulated panels is designed to reduce curing costs by offering fast setup and thermal efficiency. The 4-in.-deep version offers an R-value of 17, while the 6-in. version has an R-value of 25; both are constructed of 1-lb.-density expanded polystyrene. The components feature galvanized steel construction, coated with white enamel, and tongue-and-groove edges. iwi group LLC. 800-247-2819. www.iwigroup.com. MCPX Booth #883

Durable slipformer

The SlipMaster enables producers to create hollow-core slabs with seven or nine voids of different sizes quickly and easily. With the ability to change slab thickness on the fly, the machine lets you manufacture a diverse range of products in a short time. The user interface includes a multi-language touchscreen display, which can be moved to either side of the unit. Elematic Inc. 262-798 9777. www.elematic.com.MCPX Booth #315

Plastic lift pin

This device is composed of copolymer polypropylene, encapsulating 1-in. Grade 60 rebar. Colored orange for maximum visibility and safety, each pin is rated at 5500 lbs. The inserted portion of the pin is threaded for wet- or dry-cast applications. M.A. Industries Inc. 800-241-8250. www.maind.com.MCPX Booth #579.
