Process concrete and slurry

The Liebherr LRS 606 Concrete Reclaimer is specifically configured for precast/prestressed plants with no need for concrete foundations or ramps. Its 6-ft. diameter circular loading hopper is ideal for washing out buckets or dumping large volumes of concrete for reclamation. An alert system addresses problems with fibers, lightweight aggregate, bearing lubrication, and better fines separation. Liebherr Concrete Technology Co. 866-879-6312. www.liebherr.us Booth #1142



High-performance admixture

A new polycarboxylate chemical admixture, Plastol Ultra 109, is an economical solution to making high-quality precast and prestressed concrete. Its powerful dispersing properties are ideal for complex mixes, such as high-flow and self-consolidating concrete. The product meets ASTM C494/C494M compliance requirements for Type A and Type F admixtures. The Euclid Chemical Co. 800-321-7628. www.euclidchemical.com Booth #842



Compact mobile plants

Jumper mobile plants are easily transported on standard trailers or open top containers. The Jumper 750 has a planetary mixer, Jumper 2500 uses a twin-shaft mixer, and the Jumper D1 offers dry batching. All models are made with galvanized steel and are prewired and preplumed; no foundations are required. Simem America Corp. 877-333-9924. www.simem.com Booth #631


Flip-and-fill car stops

Tuf-Stop car stops are made with impact copolymer polypropylene plastic and are UV-stabilized to be suitable for any environment. No rebar or painting is necessary; just flip and fill with concrete. They are available in 3- and 6-ft. lengths, in Safety Yellow, Handicapped Blue, Concrete Gray, and Eco-friendly Green. Tuf-Tite Inc. 800-382-7009. www.tuf-tite.com Booth #826




Planetary piggyback mixer

Ocmer planetary mixers feature fast, compulsory mixing and a one-piece gearbox with hydraulic coupling for reliability. The mixer supports a complete feed system that includes cement and water scales, aggregate holding hopper or skip hoist, and weighed admixture containers. Selected parts are delivered as a pre-assembled unit, reducing downtime. Scale-Tron Inc. 800-632-7083. www.concretemixers.biz Booth #212






Instant batch alerts

The TouchBatch precast control system sends an e-mail alert if a batch of concrete is out of tolerance. Set individual trigger points to generate alerts under predetermined conditions. QC personnel can immediately call the plant and discuss the issue before the batch of concrete reaches its destination. MPAQ Automation Inc. 888-672-0349. www.mpaq.com Booth #303





Flexible pipe connectors

A-LOK Premium flexible compression connectors guarantee a watertight seal between smooth wall pipes and the wall of a concrete structure. The new design, under differential loading or pipe deflection, instantly redistributes its visco-elastic core material to maintain sealing pressure. It can be used with all types of pipe, and it meets ASTM C-923 and F-2510. A-Lok Products Inc. 800-822-2565. www.a-lok.com Booth #433




Protective liners

HPDE and PP Sure Grip protective liners seal and protect concrete in sewage and drinking water channels. Advantages of the design include high pull-out resistance, time savings due to quick construction, no need for excavations, and high chemical and mechanical resistance. Agru America Inc. 800-373-2478. www.agruamerica.com Booth #1052





Aluminum access hatch

A steel frame with aluminum cover has a new quick release safety latch that allows the door to rotate back 180 degrees without using tools or removing hardware. The hatch is equipped with a hold-open arm that automatically locks the cover in the upright position. A slam lock mechanism keeps the latch free from debris. USF Fabrication. 800-258-6873. www.usffab.com Booth #732




Improve concrete sustainability

Green Sense Concrete technology helps determine the optimal combination of recycled materials and tailor-made chemical admixtures needed to improve the desired slump, setting characteristics, strength, and durability of concrete. It helps reduce shrinkage, lowers crack potential, and improves strength and durability. It may contribute to LEED credit. BASF Construction Chemicals. 800-628-9990. www.basf-admixtures.com Booth #802
