Let’s talk about… Batching Plant
At Centrum Pile here in Newark we have two batching plants, one called Newark 3 and the other called Newark 4. They are called Newark 3 & 4 as when they were owned and operated by CEMEX they were the 3rd & 4th batching plants in their original geographical working areas… we just kept the names!
Newark 3 is the oldest of the two batching plants dating back to 1993 when Centrum Pile was founded in the UK. Newark 4 dates back to 2008 when we invested over £7m in our state-of-the-art facility we have today. Newark 3 batching plant has a single 2m³ wet pan mixer and three dry powder silo’s for the cement, Betocarb & PFA – all of which hold up to 50t each. Our Newark 4 batching plant has two 2m³ wet pan mixers and also three dry powder silo’s for cement and PFA which hold up 100t each.
With our six silo’s, we have a total dry powder storage capacity for 450t!
With our two batching plants running flat out, we can produce 60m³ of concrete per hour!
